About the Event
There is a strong need to understand risk emanating from uncertainties in shipping revenue and expense forecasts. A very high volatility in shipping, which is usually not seen in other industries, is required to be managed through physical as well as derivatives hedging. This basic one day program first builds the foundation in required aspects of statistics and corporate finance in a focused and meaningful way. This is then followed by a number of examples to explain risk management, basis risk, hedging by FFA trading and understanding different types of options.
