SC's Workshop on Derivatives for Senior Management

Kuala Lumpur, 4 June 1997

The Securities Industry Development Centre (SIDC) of the Securities Commission (SC) will be organising a three-day workshop on Derivatives for Senior Management from 7-9 July 1997, at the Pan Pacific Glenmarie Resort, Kuala Lumpur.

This workshop is timely with derivatives being an important tool to control financial risk, arising from the increased risk in financial markets which result from rising inflation, increased interest rate volatility and the floating of exchange rates.

The success of such event for the last two consecutive years has once again encouraged SC to bring in two well known experts and workshop leaders, Donald Lessard and Nalin Kulatilaka.

Donald Lessard is a Professor of International Management at Massachusettes Institute of Technology (MIT). His research and teaching focuses on international aspects of corporate strategy and finance, international competition in financial services, and the financial and industrial restructuring of less developed countries and countries in transition from socialism.

Nalin Kulatilaka holds the position of a Professor of Finance and Economics at Boston University School of Management. He specialises in teaching courses including international financial management, futures and options, econometrics and financial management at M.B.A. and undergraduate levels; doctoral seminar on derivative asset pricing and modern corporate finance; executive programmes in international capital markets, pricing of derivative securities and risk management.

This workshop combines lectures, case studies and discussions to enable participants to better understand concepts and gain practical insights into risk management. Among others, the workshop will cover the following topics:

  • The Evolution of Risk Management
  • An Overview of Risk Management Process
  • The Building Blocks to Understanding Derivatives
  • Measuring a Firm's Exposure to Financial Risk
  • Risk in Investing Internationally
  • Diversification and Portfolio Effects
  • Mis-perceptions and Mis-use of Derivatives
  • Total Risk Management: A Synthesis

The workshop is designed for directors and senior management of financial institutions, futures broking companies, fund management companies, stockbroking companies, and financial consultants and advisers.

Registration fee is at RM2900 per participant (inclusive of lunch, refreshment and workshop materials).

Registration forms which detail the programme of the workshop are available from Sharizan, Securities Industry Development Centre, 2nd Floor, Plaza Kelanamas, 19, Lorong Dungun, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur.
