This is an interactive online course with live presentations and open discussions. The class lasts two hours. Participants will share an online Power Point and live white board explanations.
Participants are expected to have a basic knowledge of oil markets and shipping.
Most people outside the oil industry are aware that oil prices are volatile; they move up and down, sometimes quickly. This creates a financial risk for investors and traders. Most companies manage that risk with hedging and trading limits.
Oil tankers are a key part of oil trading, and the price of hiring a ship can be even more volatile than oil prices. What are the financial risks involved in chartering oil tankers? How can that risk be managed?
This course will look at financial risks in hiring vessels and examine some methods for managing price risk in chartering.
What is the price of shipping?
Time charter or Spot charter?
Supply and demand
Dealing with Price Risk in Shipping
Hedging bunker prices with swaps and futures
Hedging shipping prices with Freight Forward Agreements (FFA’s)
The class is interactive and live. Questions are welcomed throughout and web based white boards will be used to demonstrate where required.
