The size of the global derivatives market has by some estimates reached a notional value of a quadrillion dollars. Among the primary users of derivatives are commodity-based corporations, banks, pension funds, insurance companies, mutual funds, hedge funds, and private investors. The credit worthiness of different parties to these contracts has been under focus since the credit crisis of 2008, which led to many institutions going bankrupt due to a lack of focus on credit risk. Credit risk has emerged as the major risk in dealing with derivative contracts. In order for derivatives users to manage the associated credit risk, they must develop models and procedures required to measure credit risk in monetary terms. This course identifies the sources of credit risk in widely used derivatives, with a distinction made between over-the-counter versus market traded derivatives. The course also introduces the credit equivalent risk framework, which utilizes statistical techniques to determine a risk factor that is used as an input to determine potential credit loss. In determining potential credit loss, the course also considers the probability of default and recovery rates determined through a credit rating process, analysts' judgements, and other information sources.

Each person on a team has responsibilities, both unique to the individual and collectively shared by all employees. When a healthcare professional understands their role, the team is better able to fulfill its mission to provide superior patient care and service. But learning a role and developing professional and leadership skills doesn’t happen in a silo; it involves the efforts of others as well. This occurs during supervisor-subordinate interactions, during training sessions, and as the employee is coached over time. A key way to develop professionally is through a mentorship program. This course discusses how mentors and a mentorship program can help develop employees over time.

Over the past decade, credit risk has become a main focus for many financial institutions, most notably banks. Credit risk occurs when there is a possibility of a borrower or counterparty to a transaction being unable or unwilling to perform their financial obligations. Utilizing credit risk mitigation techniques, financial institutions are able to minimize what could otherwise be substantial losses when the credit markets or particular borrowers are under pressure. The losses may sometimes be large enough to render a company insolvent and put it out of business. Mitigating the loss due to credit risk ensures that if conditions deteriorate, the financial institution will be able to recover quickly or even remain unaffected. This course introduces two main sources of credit risk: pre-settlement risk and settlement risk. It also investigates various methods for mitigating credit risk, such as netting, margins, collateral, and hedging.

In the Analyze stage of the Six Sigma DMAIC process, project teams carefully analyze process output and input variables. The goal of this analysis is to narrow down the many possible inputs identified during the Measure stage. The analysis is carried out using tools that help identify a few probable root causes that are impacting process performance. This course introduces some key tools used for exploratory data analysis in Six Sigma, such as multi-vari studies, correlation analysis, and regression models. It also explains the correlation coefficient and its statistical significance. In addition, the course helps you interpret the linear regression equation, understand the steps in hypothesis testing for regression statistics and explore the use of a regression model for prediction and estimation of outcomes. This course is aligned to the ASQ Body of Knowledge and is designed to assist Green Belt candidates toward achieving their certifications and becoming productive members of their Six Sigma project teams.

In the Analyze phase of the DMAIC methodology, a Six Sigma team begins to analyze the root causes of the problems that it identified in the earlier stages. This analysis may require churning out huge volumes of data of different types. Sometimes this data is of a multivariate nature, meaning that many dependent and independent variables need to be considered simultaneously. As such, Six Sigma teams often use advanced multivariate tools to manage this type of data. Another set of advanced statistical analysis tools used in this phase is nonparametric tests. In conventional hypothesis tests - called parametric tests - a sample statistic is obtained to estimate a population parameter and hence requires a number of assumptions to be made about the underlying population, such as the normality of data. However, a nonparametric test is used when some of these assumptions, such as normality of data, cannot be safely made. This course deals with multivariate and categorical data analysis tools such as factor analysis, discriminant analysis, and multiple analysis of variance (MANOVA). The course also aims to familiarize learners with approaches for analyzing nonparametric data, particularly the use of Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests for validating hypotheses. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.

Mutual funds are pools of money that investment experts professionally manage through investments in various securities such as stocks and bonds. The global acceptance of mutual funds is due to the ability of vast number of smaller investors to have their money professionally invested and offer a high degree of diversification and liquidity. There are many types of mutual fund, which allows investors to choose those that best fit their circumstances, for example, high risk-high return, low risk-low return, specific sector investments, global investments, fixed income, etc. This industry is ever-growing as more and more investors realize the advantages of professionally managed funds. This course covers an introduction to mutual funds, including their advantages and disadvantages. It then describes various costs associated with mutual fund operations including distribution, transaction, and portfolio management fees. The also course covers types of mutual funds including active management, passive management, equity, bond, hybrid, and global and international funds.

Over the past few decades the mutual fund industry has seen extreme swings in performance, resulting in dramatic changes in the value of investors' portfolios. The risk versus return dynamics of a mutual fund must be carefully analyzed by any investor. The investors must consider whether the type of mutual fund they are about to invest in is appropriate for their objectives. In order to do so, the investor should assess the fund's historical return and the amount of risk that the fund has taken to achieve that return, as well as other critical factors. To assess all this information, investors must be able to read and understand the fund prospectus and any other complementary information that is provided by the fund manager and other public sources. The mutual fund industry is a highly regulated industry whereby financial authorities set rules and restrictions to improve transparency of transactions, in an effort to ensure the safety of investors' money. This course introduces a number of performance metrics such as Total Return, Sharpe Ratio, Treynor Ratio, Alpha, Standard Deviation, Beta, and R-squared, which are used to determine the risk and return characteristics of a mutual fund. The course then covers the basics of a mutual fund prospectus and Statement of Additional Information, along with an overview of global mutual fund regulations.
