Industry training to help mitigate risk

To coincide with our annual trade event, we will be delivering our ‘Managing Risk’ training course in The Hyatt Regency, San Francisco on 28-29 October 2015 and registration is now open.

Developed in response to industry feedback, this one-and-a-half-day course will be delivered by industry expert, Peter Egli (Director of Risk Management, Plexus Cotton Ltd). The training will focus on key areas of risk management for the cotton trade – from gaining a deeper understanding of how futures and options work to developing trading plans and strategies.
Speaking in advance of the training, Peter Egli explains: “Since 2008 financial markets have become increasingly volatile and cotton is no exception, with the futures market experiencing price swings from 36 to 227 cents/lb. In such an environment it is more important than ever for cotton traders to gain a deeper understanding of the risk they are dealing with and to learn how to mitigate them with the help of futures and options strategies. I am pleased that the training will coincide with ICA’s next major event, ‘San Francisco 2015’, making it easy for delegates to attend both events in one trip.”
