We will start off with an introduction to the debt markets and will go through the debt market products, namely: money market instruments, loans, and bonds.

There will be an extensive case study covering all aspects of bond creation and issuance. Although the delegates may not be working on desks, issue bonds, understanding the mechanics, motivations, challenges and options involved ensure the greatest depth of understanding of all bond related factors. It will conclude with teams presenting their bond issue to the “client” to win the mandate. There will also be a case study on Credit Rating which will include through analysis and comparison of an import of raw data on a company to derive an accurate credit rating for the company.
We will finish with a trading simulation and new fixed income assets will be added to the program-wide trading simulation. We build practical models in Excel and Python ensuring that the classroom learning translates into practical desk skills.
