Interest Rate & FX Options - Part 3


This eCourse consists of two modules. Module 1 focuses on two structures - chooser caps and double-strike caps. The module explores the features and uses of these cap structures and lists their pricing procedures. It will also differentiate chooser and double-strike structures from plain vanilla cap structures and outline the benefits of using these products.

Module 2 looks at how caps and floors are priced in the market. The module also looks at the sensitivity of caps and floors to changes in key pricing variables.
