5c003d5e591091d484ea3c6e8f6051f1150 150Options IV - Exotic Options is an instructor led course presented by the energy training experts at Mennta Energy Solutions. This one-day, non-technical workshop provides delegates with detailed working knowledge of the application and pricing of innovative risk management tools. The terms "Exotic" and "Advanced" are reduced to a common denominator such that the material is easy for delegates to comprehend. This is accomplished through comparisons with "plain vanilla" and other commonly used option spreads both in terms of pricing and payout. In addition, the course examines how dealers hedge their exposure in exotic options, valuation anomalies, delta hedge ratios of 1000% or higher and potential dealer manipulation issues. Finally, a case study is used to facilitate a better understanding and the proper use of these sometimes bewildering instruments.

Includes Online Pre-study Module
