Course overview:

Effective commodity price risk management is a critical differentiator of business performance for any company producing, trading, consuming, or using commodities as part of their manufacturing or distribution process. Price volatility and increasingly complex commodity markets are the main influencing factors and companies that proactively and efficiently manage their commodity price risk gain a competitive advantage over their peers especially when it comes to profit margin. Bankers, trade financiers, and investors alike can also benefit from the vast risk appetite opportunities in commodities.

This practical training course has been designed to provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of the commodity derivatives markets, hedging strategies, and risk management techniques to effectively manage commodity exposure.

The first part of the programme is an introduction to the main commodity asset classes, their market structures, and the main players in the commodity markets. It also introduces the concepts of derivatives instruments used in commodity trading.

The second part of the programme focuses on how to manage commodity price exposure through hedging techniques using exchange-traded and over-the-counter ("OTC") derivatives. Drawing upon numerous examples, and through the use of industry-specific case studies and workshops, participants will learn several techniques for dealing with the scope and complexity of commodities trading and risk management. The course also explores the investment vehicles available for accessing commodity exposure and how trade and export financiers can mitigate against price movements of cargoes.
