The tutors were enthusiastic, the classes enjoyable, the explanations clear and intuitive, and with excellent teaching materials Quartic helped me to pass each level at first attempt.
The potential benefits of using equity derivatives, rather than underlying markets, is discussed along with associated risks.
The course explains the key terms used in equity derivative markets and compares and contrasts the use of different types of derivative product to achieve required position-taking or risk-hedging outcomes. Practical, hands-on experience in equity derivative calculations is provided along with analysis of the key drivers behind each derivative type.
The key factors influencing equity options, including the sensitivity measures embodied in the “Greeks”, are covered, along with the key relationships amongst these factors and the fundamental importance of volatility.
At the end of the course delegates should have a broad understanding of the following subject areas:
The course assumes a basic knowledge of equity markets and financial mathematics.

I would like to thank the Quartic Team for the effort in helping to make sure our classes went on smooth and for the wonderful teaching. It was very impressive. I would also like to thank the tutors for teaching us and for being very helpful in the whole process of preparing for the exam. Overall, it was a great experience having spent the past months with you.
I did a lot of research before choosing to partner with Quartic and that’s exactly what it is; a partnership. Their tutors would take you through from the beginning to the end and you can see the passion and their interest in your wellbeing. Quartic structures their classes and curriculum around the feedback they receive from candidates like us to help make it easier, smoother and better for our time with them on this difficult journey. Credit where it’s due, thank you to the team for taking me through my Level 1 2017 and Level 2 2018; only 1 to go! Just to make a point, I tutored colleagues studying with other trainers.
Your teaching methods are outstanding – hope to see you at level 3!
CFA® Program Level I
Level I covers the foundations of finance with a significant emphasis on the analytical tools, especially accounting and quantitative techniques. Although the depth of these topics may seem challenging, the benefit to candidates is the ability to “uncook the books” and get behind the published numbers.
Essential Financial Maths
This one day course on Essential Financial Maths is designed for candidates that wish to brush up on their numeracy skills. It could be that you are planning to take an exam, such as the CFA® (Chartered Financial Analyst®), IMC (Investment Management Certificate) or perhaps a University course that requires a basic level of competence in financial mathematics.
CFA® Program Level III
The final stage of the CFA Program, Level III has a strong focus on wealth planning and portfolio management. Some of the analytical subjects (accounting and quants in particular) drop from the curriculum, much to the disappointment of many candidates! Instead, you will investigate in detail the requirements and psychology of investors, with asset valuation being primarily from a portfolio perspective: how do shares, bonds, derivatives and alternatives help us to achieve a client’s objectives?
