Monis Convertibles Training
FIS can offer training on both Monis products and the convertibles market. We do not believe that general expertise in derivatives is a sufficient foundation to enter the convertibles market - whether as a trading operation, software vendor or education provider.
We are ideally placed to provide educational services to the convertibles community. We have a close understanding of the market through outstanding relationships with our extensive client base, and a department dedicated to the provision of practical, market-oriented convertibles education.
What Do Monis Training Courses Cover?
We deliver tailored courses that:
- May be introductory, intermediate or advanced.
- Focus as necessary on describing convertible instruments, pricing, trading and/or origination.
- Feature the national/regional markets of your choice.
- Can cover convertible bonds only, convertible bonds and asset swaps, or a wider range of convertible and derivative instruments. If required, these courses can also involve thorough training on our own Monis software applications.

The main benefits of convertibles training include:
- Comprehensive knowledge of convertible markets and structures.
