Event Overview


Coaltrans Conferences is delighted to announce the return of our Coal Trading & Risk Management training course. This course has not been held in London for some time, but due to unprecedented demand, it will be held in London on 25-27 June 2013.

Coal Trading & Risk Management, an intensive 3-day training course, has been specifically designed to equip you with the tools to develop an effective risk management strategy in the currently volatile coal markets.

Our experienced teaching faculty will reinforce their messaging with in-depth, practical examples, allowing you to:
  ·    Develop a thorough understanding of physical and financial coal markets
  ·    Explore the fundamental mechanisms of derivatives trading
  ·    Evaluate key risk management strategies and optimise their application in your  business
  ·    Develop effective trading and hedging strategies
  ·    Analyse the use of options as a trading tool
  ·    Manage counterparty risk via clearing and contract provisions
  ·    Set up and develop an effective trading desk, whilst avoiding the common pitfalls
  ·    Understand the key quality parameters relevant for steam coal pricing and how you can best utilise them
Coal burn has increased in Europe due to high gas prices and this is likely to continue for some time – so this is an ideal moment to attend the course. The course is expertly tailored to the latest trends in the coal trading market, as well as to the knowledge base of each of the delegates in attendance.

With a teaching faculty led by Guillaume Perret of Perret Associates and including representatives from BNP Paribas Futures Ltd, CME Group, London Commodity Brokers, and globalCOAL, this interactive training course will allow you to learn from industry leaders and develop key take-home strategies for your business, whether you are new to the industry or just looking to cement your existing knowledge.
