Investing with Derivatives – A New perspective by Dr. Chirag Shah

On Saturday, 27th August, 2022 Chetana’s Institute of Management and Research conducted a Management Development Program on the topic, “Investing with Derivatives – A New Perspective .”

Dr. Chirag Shah was the resource person for the program. The session started with inauguration by the CEO – CIMR, Dr. Madhumita Patil, and Director - CIMR, Dr. Nandita Mishra. 11 participants had attended the program.

During the 8 hours session, Dr. Chirag Shah gave a new perspective toward the derivatives as a financial instrument. He elaborated on the use of derivatives as a risk management instrument. At the same time he emphasised on the right use of leverage for wealth creation.

The participants were happy to learn that Derivatives can be used as a long term investing tool rather than just a speculative tool with a zero sum game. They appreciated the way Dr. Chirag Shah cleared all the concepts without diving too much in the technicalities and by keeping things simple.

At the end of the session, the participants were more confident to use the financial instruments for their personal wealth management. They also gave their qualitative feedback to the CEO about the session.

The session ended with the certificate distribution by CEO ma’am to all the participants.

Thank you to all the esteemed panellist, our alumni, speakers and the team!

Chetana’s association with ARCON is a joint venture between Chetana and ARCON aims at exposing the participants to the concepts of Project management in the Information security domain. Program was aiming to focus on the standard and best project management practices for your cybersecurity projects which can help your organization learn from mistakes, avoid similar mistakes in the future and facilitate the continuous improvement of processes, procedures and projects. Properly documenting cybersecurity project specifics will save time and resources for similar projects in the future, while allowing teams to collaborate while keeping their communications secure thereby reducing the risk of a crippling data breach.

Project management allows information security (InfoSec) teams the ability to build a functional, secure base of IT infrastructure while keeping an eye on project resources, time and manpower to ensure that projects stay under budget. By breaking down cybersecurity initiatives into more manageable chunks with shorter life cycles, business and IT leaders can produce results without having to recreate the wheel with every initiative.

This two-day program (4 hours per day) aims to help participants develop a basic framework to plan, execute, monitor and control during various phases of the projects and to apply some project management techniques for the optimal utilization of resources in the domain.
