Calibrating Interest Rate Models
While in earlier training courses we have covered classic interest rate models, in this session we review two more advance Interest Rate Models, the Cox Ingersoll & Ross Model (CIR) and the Multifactor HJM model for projecting the entire forward curve, rather than just the short rate.

The second course on derivatives and options products digs a little deeper into products, pricing, sensitivities and product variations over ten easy to read chapters. Starting again from vanilla products we touch upon options on currencies and Forex, options on interest rates, forwards, futures an Interest Rate Swaps.
