This half-day seminar will provide attendees with an overview of hedging tools and risk management in the oil markets, with particular emphasis on introductory swaps and options used in the oil trading business.
The event will focus on the fundamentals of hedging using futures, options and swaps to provide delegates with a background in the marine fuels sector with a useful, basic understanding of how to discuss hedging strategy with internal management and use these tools in practice.
Current examples and case studies will be used to apply ‘real world’ situations to hedging and managing both physical barrel and financial contracts risk.
The seminar is intended to encourage delegate participation and interaction, and attendees will be able to ask questions on specific areas of interest as they arise during the session.
- Key benefit: The delegate fee for this workshop includes the opportunity to benefit from a free risk management policy review whereby risk expert Chris Thorpe will undertake a personal, confidential review of each delegate’s written hedging policy.
