Credit Risk - Measurement and Management - Online Course

While my intention was to participate in person, this was sadly not permitted by my employer due to pandemics travel restrictions. But what I got at the end, was likely the best online course I have ever taken, nicely presented with clear narrative and examples. Thumbs up for Jorgen, keep the good work!

As far as the contents are concerned, there were surely applicable chapters, as I deal with PD and LGD models on a daily basis. Despite mostly working with low default portfolios (here is where my questions originate), I found the presented techniques and models interesting and of potential use, and in particular I liked the Excel supplement which finally displayed in practical terms some of the contents I was previously familiar with but never saw a practical example.

Excellent course, especially day 1 was highly relevant for my work! But also Basel III and IV and CDS is highly relevant. Good relation between theory and practice.

The credit risk part was very good to learn although it is not an area I work with a lot. Counterparty risk was highly relevant and the part about CDS was more of my own interest.
