Not only did the lecturer explain the various types of risks in the financial markets and the tools used to measure them, he also explained the rationale behind the computations to measure risks. The actual experiences of Dr. Jeff. Lim helped the participants understand the concept of risks better as he was able to relate it to actual events in the workplace.

Dr. Jeffrey Lim made the two-day affair a very lively and exciting seminar. He is one of the best lecturers I have come across!"

"The seminar was very helpful in making us understand the basics of VaR and how it came to be developed. The rationale behind industry practices were explained and you'll be amazed at how these were derived. Important concepts and developments were also discussed which cannot be found in textbooks.

With the help of Prof. Lim, we were able to comprehend complex formulas and understand its different uses in the financial world (you'd want to go back to your college math professor and tell him "I would have understood math better if you taught it this way!"). We also did Excel/Visual Basic exercises to better understand the different methodologies of VaR.

Prof. Lim has a way of connecting to the participants despite the alphabets at the end of his name. He was able to discuss what financial risk management is all about and how it can help your company to continue to do what it's best at!"
