This one-day workshop is aimed at providing insight into the basic calculations for people working in financial markets. A step-by-step approach will be used to explain the use of the HP10b financial calculator. Delegates will have the option to either bring their own, or purchase a financial calculator from SAIFM. Foundational to the program is developing the ability to calculate the value of a single cash flow, multiple cash flows and the application of these calculations for pricing and valuing financial instruments. The ability to determine a rate of return on an investment and convert a nominal interest rate to an effective yield will also be clearly explained. Many practical examples will be conducted to cement concepts.
