The tools and techniques of hedging interest and exchange rate risk are dealt with in this subject. It begins with an overview of the factors leading to the rise of risk management as a professional activity and academic discipline. Students examine background material such as the structure of money and bond markets and the determination and term structure of interest rates. This is followed by a survey of the product set, including forward and futures contracts, options and swaps. The financial risk management strategy is then discussed, including security design. Students will also have an opportunity to learn measurement and management of foreign exchange risk.
