In a project management system, processes are the foundation upon which every other aspect of the system stands. Processes provide a controlling structure for establishing what to do and when to do it. The bulk of the project work is done during the stage-related processes, when Stage Plans are implemented and product creation and delivery is monitored, controlled and reported. Once the final product is signed off and delivered to the customer, there are also specific processes around ensuring the project comes to a complete and controlled close. This course provides an overview of the PRINCE2 processes related to controlling, managing and closing a project. PRINCE2 is recognized as an international standard for process-based project management. It is the standard method for project management in the UK. This course is designed to assist learners in preparation for the PRINCE2 Foundation certification exam objectives under the processes area, covering four of the eight processes, namely Controlling a Stage, Managing Stage Boundaries, Managing Product Delivery and Closing a Project. PRINCE2® is a Registered Trade Mark of the Office of Government Commerce in the United Kingdom and other countries.

The credit crisis of the early 21st century has been a stark reminder to financial organizations of the inherent risks involved in extending large amounts of credit. Banks have revisited their credit procedures and have a renewed emphasis on credit analysis and pricing loans correctly to reflect the associated credit risks. A robust credit risk analysis process will ensure that banks can better judge the amount of credit risk that they are willing to undertake and what kind of measures they should take to protect themselves from such risks. It is also important for banks to understand lending regulations that are set up to protect them from holding illiquid assets and becoming insolvent. This course introduces the basics of credit analysis and the general process for conducting it. It then discusses the components of loan pricing and describes how banks' lending policies are regulated by the banking authorities.

Credit Default Swaps have emerged as the most widely used credit derivatives in the financial markets. They provide banks and other financial institutions with the means to transfer credit risk off their books and to diversify their financial portfolios. These products are also extensively used for additional yield generation through the receipt of premiums, as well as to speculate on credit spread curve fluctuations. Options on credit default swaps, known as swaptions, have become popular as an extension of swaps, which provide channels for credit spread strategies to hedge and speculate credit risk. The use of credit spread options and credit spread futures has increased the demand for credit derivatives. They are most frequently used by international banks and investment houses to manage and profit from credit events. This course provides an overview of credit default swaps, swaptions, and constant maturity credit default swaps, and also covers how they work and their typical payoff profiles. It then introduces the two categories of credit spread options: those that reference obligations with fixed credit spreads and those that reference the level of credit spread on the reference obligation. Credit spread forwards contracts are also briefly covered.

Credit derivatives have gained increased attention over the past decade primarily due to the need for major financial institutions to transfer credit risk off their books. These financial contracts are also widely used by speculators to profit from potential credit events. It has become imperative for major financial institutions to recognize the need to measure credit risk using traditional and contemporary models. Credit risk measurements allow the financial institutions to determine what type of credit derivatives to use and how to price them. It is important for analysts to distinguish between the different types of credit derivatives such as Credit Default Swaps, Total Return Swaps, Credit Linked Notes, Synthetic Collateralized Debt Obligations, and others. In addition to this, analysts must have a good understanding of the types of credit risk models that exist. This course gives an overview of credit risk and how credit derivatives assist in transferring credit risk to other parties. It briefly covers major types of credit derivatives including credit default swaps, total return swaps, spread and bond options, credit-linked notes, principal-protected structures, repackaging vehicles, and synthetic CDOs. The course introduces various credit risk models and gives an overview of the Altman's Z-score model and neural networks.

The ongoing rapid growth of credit derivatives, which began in the late 1900s, has primarily been fueled by the requirements of large international banks to manage their regulatory capital requirements and increase the efficiency of their capital reserves. This has led to a wider acceptance of these instruments, mainly as a means to remove credit risk off the books of one entity and onto the books of another who is willing to accept it. In addition to large international banks, many smaller regional banks and insurance and reinsurance providers, as well as institutional investors, hedge funds, and corporations, have become the users of credit derivatives. This course gives a brief overview of the general characteristics of credit derivatives and the market for them, including the major participants and the roles they play. It also examines various credit risk applications from banking, investor, and corporate applications.

Credit derivatives were introduced in the early 1990s and have been widely adopted as a means for transferring credit risk exposure from one market participant to another. Before this time, these products were primarily used by banks to reduce the credit risk inherent in their loan portfolios. Credit derivatives have since evolved to include an array of different structured products that can be greatly tailored to the user's specific needs, and are used by a variety of entities wishing to hedge, speculate, or profit from arbitrage. By 2005, the growth of credit derivatives outgrew the processing capabilities of firms offering these products, both in terms of technology and people. These products are highly complex to price, and human errors and system failures can lead to enormous financial losses. This course introduces the general risks generated by credit derivatives, including credit risks, default risks, modeling, and legal risks. It briefly covers some pricing techniques for several widely used credit derivatives, including credit default swaps, asset swaps, and bond options. The course concludes with an overview of operational issues, such as technology requirements and testing procedures, as well as the transaction process and issues arising from unconfirmed trades.
