Introduction to Derivatives


In this course we introduce the different derivative instruments. We discuss their mechanics, the terminology and how they are used. But we do not address the more technical topics of pricing and the risk management of forwards, futures and options. If you are also interested in these topics, we recommend the Derivatives Fundamentals Class.
