Course overview

The ASF’s Securitisation Fundamentals Program is a four-hour introductory course designed to provide an overview of key securitisation concepts. The course will equip participants with a foundation of how this market sector operates, its purpose and some of its challenges.

Securitisation Fundamentals is also a highly recommended stepping stone if you are considering enrolment in the Securitisation Professionals course, and have little to no exposure to the securitisation market.

COVID-19 information

Due to the current situation, the ASF will be offering virtual learning series in place of face to face workshops for the foreseeable future.  These sessions are designed to enable participants to continue their securitisation professional development whilst the COVID-19 situation prevails. As with our face to face workshops, participants will have the opportunity to interact with each other, ask questions and learn from the best in the industry. Virtual learning series are offered at a 25% discount to standard course fees. This is reflected in the fees displayed on the registration page.
