A Supercycle for Commodity Markets after Covid and ESG

After a number of years of stagnant prices, commodities have experienced many changes over the last 15 months: with the WTI first nearby reaching very negative values in April 2020, oil companies facing a reduced demand because of Covid and their ESG ratings scrutinized by portfolio managers.

Agricultural commodities have reached higher prices as countries are concerned about food security; the same for copper and other metals involved in the construction of wind turbines and electric vehicles.

Gold has remarkably receded as a hedge against Quantitative Easing and Bitcoins seem to have replaced it.

This comprehensive 2-day course focuses on understanding price formation in Commodity spot markets, the role of Inventory in the shape of the forward curve and the trading opportunities brought by forward curves in Contango. It provides an in-depth analysis of Futures, physical and financial options in Commodities as well as the different types of investments provided by this remarkable asset class. The positioning of Bitcoins with respect to Commodities will be also discussed.

The content is designed for traders in financial institutions, managers in pension funds and insurance companies, and risk executives and corporate managers in charge of raw materials and commodities purchase.

All delegates will receive a copy of Professor Geman's reference book "Commodities and Commodity Derivatives: Modeling and Pricing for Agriculturals, Metals and Energy" published by Wiley Finance.
