The Baltic Exchange will be holding its Freight Derivatives & Shipping Risk and Advanced Freight Modelling and Trading training course in New York during April. More details below:
Freight Derivatives & Shipping Risk Management (New York: 8-9 April)
Delivered over two days by experts in the areas of shipping and commodity risk management, the Shipping Risk Management course aims to raise market awareness of risks involved in shipping businesses and how various physical and derivatives instruments can be used to control such risks efficiently and effectively. Participants will learn how to analyse and measure the impact of financial risks involved in shipping investment and operations, and how to select and execute effective strategies to minimise or eliminate such risks, stabilise their cash flow and maximise the return on investment more efficiently.
Advanced Freight Modelling and Trading (New York: 10-11 April)
This advanced two day module focuses on modelling freight rate dynamics and pricing options on freight. It discusses issues which are relevant to shipping market practitioners such as constructing forward curves on freight, modelling freight rate volatility as well as hedging and trading strategies using freight options. The course aims to provide delegates with both a theoretical foundation as well as practical hands-on experience.
The courses will be led by Professor Nikos Nomikos and Professor Amir Alizadeh, both lecturers at the renowned Centre for Shipping, Trade & Finance at London’s Cass Business School.
