A new module covers how to perform Profit and Loss Attribution for Linear and Non-Linear Derivatives, includes several case studies. The main option “Greeks' (Delta, Gamma, Vega and Theta) are presented using practical exercises.
The course also provides an overview of energy price behavior, and applied probability and statistics using Excel exercises with hands-on calculations. After introducing the building blocks of risk analysis, we estimate volatilities, correlations and calculate Value at Risk and other risk metrics.
The course concludes by providing in-depth applications of market risk management of energy portfolios, with particular emphasis on VaR, Stress Tests and Backtesting. Delegates conduct hands-on calculations for variance-covariance, Monte Carlo and Historical Simulation VaR for energy portfolios.
