What You Will Learn Is This Course Right For You?  
The evolving regulations that have impacted the financial industry in the last six years have resulted in a draft of numerous rules and regulations that have and will provide global market authorities more powers to oversee how institutions manage their operations and trading activity which will result in more transparent view of how risk is managed within the industry. At the for front of these new regulations, The Dodd Frank Act (DFA) in the US which was signed into law in July 2010 and European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) which went into force in August 2012 have resulted in stringent new rules and guidelines around the risk mitigation of derivatives. This new environment requires a new approach to collateral management. Historically, considered a back office function, today collateral management is becoming an integral part of the business when managing counterparty credit risk.
