Buy-side investment managers are increasingly using derivatives and structured products to enhance returns and reduce risk. These instruments allow asset managers, insurance firms and pension funds to expand into new asset classes and geographies in the search for alpha.

However, many investment firms face challenges with derivatives and structured products. These challenges include having the appropriate analytics, systems and workflow to model, price, trade and risk manage these complex instruments.

Without this ability, there is an increased risk of mispricing trades, inaccurate hedging and your capacity to seize new trading opportunities is limited.

Moderated by John Hull, PhD and presented by Renjulal Vidyadharan, Derivatives Analyst at FINCAD, this webinar will show how you can enhance your performance with structured products. The webinar will cover:

  • Evolution of the structured product markets
  • Different instrument types and how they are used
  • Advantages of an object-oriented framework and optimal approaches for modelling, pricing and risk management
  • Benefits including, more trading opportunities, more accurate pricing, better portfolio insight and efficient resource use
