Online Continuing Professional Education (CPE) For Actuaries
Think about this for a second – when you imagine a perfect online learning platform what do you want?
- If you are new to the subject, you want a customized learning roadmap written by a subject matter expert. Someone who knows exactly what you need to understand and pick up and can help you navigate the hurdles of learning a difficult concept.
- You don’t just want online HTML based content. Ideally, it would help if you have a few videos, some take home pdf files that you can download and read at your pace on the train or at the airport and it would be really neat if somehow there were atleast a few excel templates that can help you walk through what you have just covered
Let’s see how we stack up against that online education checklist

As a student every once in a while you want to walk away from the learning plan and explore what else is out there. Yes, you can do that here. We cover topics of interest and what is happening in markets and you can see that on the recent post tab. If you want to do something completely different like brushing up on correlations or asset liability management, you can do that too by walking through our list of 40 plus active courses. And if you simply want to ping us for help with a topic covered in our courses, you can do that too using the comments and forum section of the site.

Who are you?
You are an individual looking at ready access to hard to understand finance hot topics at a fixed price ideally with killer content. You have been asking yourself:
- Where do you get educational training content that covers risk, pricing, market trends, trade ideas and execution in a language that you can actually understand?
- Can you actually get a selection of meaningful courses that use market data and market based examples that can readily be put to work?
- How about foundation courses for beginners? Advance courses for hardcore users? Demystified topic guides for the truly confused?
- Where do you get hold of subject matter experts who can weave themes from treasury, risk, trading, analysis and banking regulation at one site?
- Can you combine the best of HTML content, with training videos, take away pdf notes and downloadable excel templates on one fixed price platform?
This has been the gist of our conversation with our treasury and FI customers over the last 12 months. The Risk Treasury Resource Guide was specifically designed to address the questions identified above. It is a subscription based online portal that
- Combines the best of html content with training videos, take away pdf notes and downloadable excel templates on a fixed price training platforms.
- Created by subject matter experts who have spent more than a decade as practitioners and in demand consultants in the GRC space.
- Designed primarily for customers spread across the world who cannot access live training on account of travel restrictions, budgets, timing conflicts or simply need an active on call reference and resource guide.
- Covers the full range of courses from basic corporate finance to advance derivative pricing cataloguing more than 40 online courses. Current inventory covers topics in Fixed Income, FX, Commodities, Risk, Interest Rate Models, Basel II, Monte Carlo simulations and derivative pricing.
- Add a new course a month covering a hot topic requested by existing clients and users in the GRC space.
Online CPE Training Credits – Why are we special?
We think that this is a product that stands out for a number of reasons
- First the design is based on our experience of running a free online risk modeling and finance reference guide for the last 18 months. We have received and incorporated feedback from our 200,000+ visitors.
- Second it’s a tool created by risk and treasury professionals for risk and treasury professionals. In our search for similar resources for our risk consulting work we have looked far and wide and finally designed something that we ourselves would want to use.
- Third the learning elements are based on our expertise in delivering live training courses on awkward topics like interest rate modeling, probability of default estimates and portfolio optimization. I teach the risk, treasury and derivative pricing course to Exec. MBA students at two regional schools in Dubai and Singapore as well as to market professionals in the Middle East and Far East.
What about the content? Why is that special?
To begin with it is not academic. It is practical and hands on based on our consulting experience in the risk and treasury space over the last 10 years. As a firm we have successfully completed Basel II implementations, risk management policy reviews, model audits, pricing and valuation opinions and investment advisory mandates. We have run some of the largest fixed income portfolios in our markets and set up risk trading desks, implemented treasury systems and sat between acrimonious discussions on treasury profitability, transaction drivers and risk limits.
Then there is the academic piece. Two Fellow society of actuaries, one Columbia Business School MBA, four published text books and a highly rated EMBA faculty member described as “one of the best unconventional EMBA finance professors on campus”.
