Risk Management – How Other Industries Do It
Tuesday, 7 March, 2017
In today’s volatile energy markets it has become ever more important to hedge your company’s exposure to the fluctuations of power and gas as well as coal and freight prices. After Enron in 2001 and Lehman Brothers in 2008 wholesale energy market participants are very aware of the credit risk in the market and therefore use centrally cleared futures and options such as those listed at the European Energy Exchange to hedge their exposure. The presentation will focus on how companies in energy intensive industries can hedge relatively complex portfolios using standardized products in the wholesale market, thereby reducing their cost of energy, and at the same time, by accessing a centrally cleared market, reducing their counterparty credit risk.
