About ACI Dealing Simulation

Started in 1984, the ACI Australia Dealing Simulation Course offers delegates the opportunity to learn about the following:

How do I execute/manage risk on behalf of my bank or customer?

What price should I make?

What are my customers specific needs?

The course content is always being updated and recent additions include FX Forwards/Swaps as well as the generic Spot Foreign Exchange and Currency Options.

Electronic platforms are used to not only transact with other Banks but also to communicate with customers. The course lectures , presentations and workshops themselves are now aimed at a broad cross section of your staff so that not only traders benefit from the course but also e-FX Sales Staff , and Risk Managers from your Market, Credit, Compliance and Operational Risk areas, and Legal & Documentation staff. Essentially anyone that has a role that touches on the day to day activities of a Dealing Room will take away invaluable practical experience from this course , plus potential long standing market relationships.
