This training program provides participants with an in-depth understanding of energy finance by addressing three areas of finance in an energy context: pricing, asset valuation, and risk management.
The program begins by placing energy markets in the context of global financial markets, and analyzing markets’ reactions to the 2007 – 2009 international crisis. We will develop participants’ understanding of the energy markets, and how to model and forecast energy and forward/futures prices. The course will then focus on giving delegates an understanding of energy-related derivatives. Delegates will be taught the different derivative products and learn how to apply them in the energy markets to develop hedging and risk management strategies.
The course will then consider valuation and the application of option theory to energy related assets. Delegates will leave with an understanding of the energy markets, and how to measure and manage the financial risks created by volatile energy prices. Delegates will gain the skills to accurately value energy assets and use derivatives to mitigate energy price risk.
This course will be invaluable for those involved in financial and quantitative analysis, valuation and structuring, and trading positions within major energy companies as well as people working within leading investment banks, consulting, and financial services firms.
