Recognize, limit and control risk potential.
Currency and interest rate fluctuations can cause companies to experience significant earnings volatility. This has been proven to have a negative impact on the company's value - and in some cases it even calls into question the continued existence of the company.

In the course of the seminar, the process of market risk management is prepared in a structured manner. It identifies which positions are at risk and analyzes how the risks affect the company. Different quantification methods are presented and the advantages and disadvantages are discussed in detail. On the basis of this information, it is possible to make well-founded decisions on the risk strategy and then to implement them.
The potential impact of these risks requires a careful choice of strategy - also with a view to sustainable corporate management.

Main topics:
• Basics and risk policy
• What is the “check list” for professional risk management?
• What do guidelines for risk management in companies prescribe?
• Which specifications and “benchmarks” should a treasury be measured against and which shouldn't?
• Analysis of currency risk
• When does currency risk arise and why is it often difficult to determine?
• Where are direct and indirect currency risks in operative business and how do they show up in accounting?
• What methods are there for risk analysis and quantification?
• What hedging instruments are there and why do accounting and treasury present the risks and hedging transactions differently?
• How is a risk strategy systematically defined?
• Analysis of the interest rate risk
• What forms of interest rate risk are there?
• Which items in the balance sheet and income statement contain interest rate risks?
• What is the difference between net interest and value risk?
• How are the risks quantified?
• What are the strengths and weaknesses of each quantification method?
• What are the different approaches for a risk strategy with regard to cost and risk aspects?
• What hedging instruments are there and how do they differ?

Group of participants:
Employees and managers who work in or are responsible for foreign currency or interest rate risk management, as well as corporate account managers from banks who want to get to know their customers' day-to-day business from their perspective.

Based on the theoretical principles of risk identification, quantification and hedging, the practical implementation is explained using numerous examples. Finally, various approaches in risk strategy and reporting are examined and compared.
