Seventeen international delegates successfully completed this year’s Managing Risk in a Volatile World training course.
The one-and-a-half-day course took place in Festival City, Dubai from 3-4 September and was delivered by industry expert, Peter Egli (Director of Risk Management at Plexus Cotton Ltd). The training focused 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.
Following the delivery of the training, Peter Egli said: “The goal of this training was to first address the various risks that traders face in today’s cotton market, going beyond the traditional supply and demand considerations, and then to provide participants with the tools and strategies to safeguard against these risks.”
Sanjeev Kumar Mittal (Managing Director of Raghunath Agrotech Pvt Ltd) was one of the delegates who benefited from the training: “Having attended the ICA’s Complete Cotton course in Liverpool just a few months back, this provided more in-depth training on options, strategies and the money flow of USA. It was a great lesson for me and just knowing the views of Peter Egli is good to make decisions in the coming season. Overall it was great and a good learning experience.”
The training built on delegates’ basic subject knowledge and covered the following modules: Review of Futures and Options Basics, The Global Economy / Fundamentals, Technical Analysis and Building Strategies.
