My thoughts have been clarified after attending the seminar."

Malaysian Assurance Alliance Berhad, Malaysia.

[Class of August 2003]

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.

“It's so refreshing to see Jeff share with such passion and enthusiasm! I have learnt many insights about Treasury / FX Markets that I believe would not be presented or taught elsewhere.

I am glad that Jeff took effort to make me feel comfortable and is concerned that I benefit from the course. His passion and dedication for what he does has encouraged me to ask questions - even those I've stopped asking after I left school.

I believe that Jeff's previous working experience and academically acquired knowledge together with his inquisitive character has equipped him to do his job well.”

  --- On the PTM01: Treasury Management seminar

Comments from past participants
 

“There exists risks in everything we do, and all we can do is to control it, so it doesn’t impact us significantly when it happens. The Treasury Risk management seminar helped me to see things more thoroughly, and it challenged the way I think and helped me set a new paradigm on how to see things. This is a very good seminar to attend !”
