INTL FCStone risk management workshop


No one knows where commodity prices are heading. As such, everyone should take the time to learn how to manage that price uncertainty.

This introductory workshop will highlight various markets and products that can be used to manage your firm’s price risk and, as a result, your bottom line.

The workshop will include some refresher topics including common market concepts and misconceptions.

It will proceed quickly to discussions on corporate price risk management policy, managing your firm’s interest rate exposure and a detailed overview of options markets and pricing.  The workshop will then finish with an overview of OTC markets and structures.
