Risk Management Training

The Situation

Agencies needed customized training in risk management.

NERA's Role

NERA's risk experts designed training courses for the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation ("Freddie Mac") and the Federal Home Loan Bank, Office of Finance. The course for Freddie Mac focused on training personnel in the workings of future markets and in new futures contracts on "Agency" securities in particular. The course for the Office of Finance provided training in the use and valuation of derivatives such as forwards, futures, swaps, options and derivative securities, such as structured notes and asset-backed securities. The latest developments in measuring and managing market and credit risk on a portfolio basis were also presented.

The Result

Both courses gave our clients a vital understanding of how changes in the risk management landscape affect their businesses.
