Station 4: Understanding Asset Classes (UI)

Understanding Asset Classes continues the theme of diversification by focusing on the building blocks of investing, namely the many types of “egg baskets” and their classification and characteristics. These include cash, stocks, bonds, property and commodities and more "exotic" and less tangible ones such as options and futures. We focus on stocks & bonds and examines their behavioural traits, including historical risk and return profiles, factors which make them "tick", their sensitivity to market and economic events, and the unique "inverse" relationship between them which makes these instruments such amicable partners in the process of portfolio construction. We discover that far from being homogeneous groups, stocks and bonds come in many shades of grey and their spectrum of risk and return is wider and more diverse than could be imagined. We also put "property" under the microscope, following Signore Medici's own footsteps as he applies his tried and tested criteria to selecting an investment property to buy!

Station 3: Understanding Diversification (UI+)

Understanding Diversification delves into the simple but wise age-old parable of not putting all one’s eggs in a basket. But are all eggs and all baskets created equal and how many eggs should we put in a basket anyway? To explore and answer these questions, we will trace the steps of a mysterious medieval figure whose fortunes have finally taken a favourable turn and who now has a windfall to invest in the property market. We begin with the mathematics of a simple diversification strategy for our daring investor and progress to examine event probability using a game of dice, elaborating on the deeper nuances of diversification and their implications for modern-day portfolio construction and management.   To add to your learning experience, in this package you will also have access to our "Learning Lounge", which is designed for those who wish to delve deeper into a subject and get to know its nuts and bolts, so to speak!

Station 2: Understanding Risk Profiling (UI+)

Is the glass half full or half empty? That is the question!  Understanding Risk Profiling examines the diversity of human perception and particularly the paradox that while the same investment may appeal to one investor it may be equally unattractive to another. Personal preferences play a key role in assessing investment prospects and must be superimposed on the already complex relationship between risk and return.  This course probes this seemingly contradictory aspect of human nature through principles which were originally developed by the 18th Century Swiss mathematician and physicist Daniel Bernoulli using an imaginary game of chance he called the “Saint Petersburg Paradox”. You can play a similar game to find out your risk score and to discover whether your profile is what you thought it would be! To add to your learning experience, in this package you will also have access to our "Learning Lounge", which is designed for those who wish to delve deeper into a subject and get to know its nuts and bolts, so to speak!

Station 1: Understanding Risk & Return (UI+)

In this course, we will take you through a journey of imagining and visualising the relationship between risk and return, these quarrelsome and often misunderstood siblings of the investment world. You will see them in an entirely different light by the time you reach the end of this enlightening trip! Here you will discover the multi-faceted nature of this relationship through visualisation, imagination, simulation and analysis. You will learn that risk and return are euphemisms for fear and greed – perhaps the most primordial of human sentiments – and that far from being a scary monster, risk is, in fact, the driver of return: “Without risk, there will be little or no return”, our resident Professor tells us! He also explains that risk is best viewed through a prism of statistics and event probability; as such, it can be visualised as a “range of probable return outcomes around an average value”. To add to your learning experience, in this package you will also have access to our "Learning Lounge", which is designed for those who wish to delve deeper into a subject and get to know its nuts and bolts, so to speak!

This 8-Pack Bundle includes the following webinars:  FCC Approval Requirements/Process Presented by Tim Johnson This webinar will review various rule part applicability for the more common applications for licensed and unlicensed wireless device approval for US and Canada.  Restrictions on modifications and use of accessories are presented.  Modular approval and integration requirements are discussed for the designer implementing wireless functionality into products. SAR and MPE requirements and details regarding permissive change options are identified.  A review of the grant and obtaining technical detail on the approval is reviewed.  Rule parts that require FCC involvement are identified. FCC Application Review (Content Requirements) Presented by Greg Czumak This webinar will review the application for approval content and presentation of technical detail from test results to design parameters.  Providing all the required information as part of the original application can expedite the approval process without a delay to obtain additional information required for approval.  This presentation is based on the reviewer perspective with identification on common omissions.  An essential training for those preparing applications. New European Radio Requirements Could Leave You in the “RED” Presented by Michael Derby As the required implementation date and the end of the R&TTED to RED transition period rapidly approaches, this training addresses compliance to Directive 2014/53/EU, known as the RED. We have seen a lot of activity in harmonizing standards but it is still expected that Notified Body (NB) involvement will be needed in many cases.  This webinar reviews the requirements and timelines of the RED, the status of the harmonised or draft standards, and the requirements for using a Notified Body including the technical documentation file. Preparation for the June 2017 deadline for maintaining compliance of products on the EU and EEA market must be completed, and this training provides essential information. Anatomy of a Test Presented by John Repella Many wireless device approval regulations require an extensive set of test and measurements to confirm that a device is compatible with radio frequency spectrum matters.  Although not applicable to all countries, the RED cites use of specific harmonized standards to demonstrate compliance and these ETSI standards describe the test program.  Compliance in other countries have a similar test program with their specific requirements that have a lot of similarity to the ETSI testing. This webinar provides a detailed review of a test program based on compliance with a selected ETSI standard (300 328) The test approach, measurements, and verification of compliance for: RF power Duty Cycle Accumulated Transmit Time Hopping Frequency Separation Medium Utilization Adaptivity Occupied Channel Bandwidth Unwanted emissions (TX & RX) Receiver Blocking + Other specific elements will be discussed, and the requirement for immunity testing will be provided as a separate class on this topic. Those involved in design and qualification testing of wireless devices will find this information critical for understanding what happens during the test program and why the operation control of the device under test is so critical for the testing. Wireless Broadband Device and DFS Requirements Presented by Michael Young According to the 802.16-2004 WiMAX standard, broadband means “having instantaneous bandwidths greater than 1 MHz and supporting data rates greater than 1.5 Mbit/s. This seminar explores the technologies that have proliferated after the introduction of IEEE 802.xx series of specifications. There is a wide range of systems available spanning from 900 MHz through 72 GHz. Discussion will present an overview current Wi-Fi devices, as well as other the license-free bands and equipment that operates in these bands. Dynamic Frequency Selection requirements for operation in the 5 GHz region for radar protection is included in this wireless device class.  We will also explore the TV White Spaces and introduce the new Citizens Broadband Radio Service. This class provide essential information for the designers incorporating broadband technology into their products and to the test and evaluation team on understanding the parameters associated with this product type. International Approval Presented by Mark Maynard This webinar provides details on the approval process for many Asia Pacific, South America, Africa, Middle East and Europe (Non-EU) countries.  Information regarding the technical requirements, requirement for in country test and evaluation and specific variances for select countries are discussed.  A critical training for those associated with the international market approval. Immunity Requirements – Wireless Presented by Steven Koster Many country approvals include Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) evaluations that require immunity as part of the approval process.  This class reviews the various immunity test requirements using a RED harmonized standard as the basis for test selection.  From radiated RF to power interruptions, the details are examined along with the fundamentals of accomplishing the tests.  This class supplements the class on testing of the radio performance testing previously presented. Wireless and Risk Management Presented by Steven Ferguson Directive 2014/53/EU includes provisions to address risk management and requires that the file include this analysis.  If using a harmonized standard or Notified Body (NB), the risk analysis remains a necessary function and must be present in the technical file.  This class reviews the various topics associated with wireless device approval and how to manage risk mitigation.  A general approach to documenting the risk analysis included.  The review goes beyond the minimum elements specified in the directive to address other matters integral to the overall performance of the device.  Presenters Tim Johnson Tim Johnson is Senior Certification Engineer for American Certification Body and an iNARTE Certified Engineer (for both EMC and Wireless Device Certification Professional disciplines).
