This interactive one-day Derivatives: Applications in Equity and Fixed Income Portfolio Management course describes how various asset managers apply derivatives. Based on their objectives, portfolio managers will use derivatives to hedge, speculate, increase return, or arbitrage. Although the main focus will be on mutual funds, other asset managers such as insurance companies, pension funds and hedge funds will also be evaluated. Annual reports and prospectuses will be used to determine portfolio objectives and derivative applications in a case study format.
