The training provides all the necessary tools to mitigate these risks and analyses the infrastructure that is necessary to manage them as well as to organise their follow-up. The simulation sets up a competition between participants on the above topics, which requires using strategic thinking and planning, and applying knowledge on liquidity, market, counterpart, operational and other risks.
