SRA Competency B


Derivatives are one of the most mis-understood financial products and it is important for professional advisors to understand how they work, what they can do to help and how they can do harm.

This intermediate level one day course will consider the financing aspects using ‘crystal-clear’ spreadsheets to lock in your understanding. You will also develop a practical sense of the risks of using the wrong kind of derivative and how to spot mis-sales.
