Product Description

What is Credit Risk Management:

Imagine that you are a bank and a main part of your daily business is to lend money. Unfortunately, lending money is a risky business – there is no 100% guarantee that you will get all your money back. If the borrower defaults, you will face losses in your portfolio. Or, in a bit less extreme scenario, if the credit quality of your counterparty deteriorates according to some rating system, the loan will become riskier. Managing such risk is utmost important for any financial institution.

Why it is important:

This course offers you an introduction to credit risk modelling and hedging. We will approach credit risk from the point of view of banks, but most of the tools and models we will overview can be beneficial at the corporate level as well. You will be able to understand and correctly use the basic tools of credit risk management, both from a theoretical and, most of all, a practical point of view.
