New Shipping Risk Management Course

Friday, March 11, 2005
The Baltic Exchange and the Centre for Shipping, Trade & Finance at London’s Cass Business School unveiled plans today (10 March) to deliver a series of executive courses focusing on the management of a range of financial risks in the shipping markets.

The two day course “Shipping Risk Management” will cover freight, bunker, ship price, credit, foreign exchange and interest rate risk and will be held in London, Hamburg, Athens, Hong Kong and Singapore during 2005. The course will be delivered by the Centre for Shipping, Trade & Finance through Cass’s Executive Education division, CassExec.

Baltic Exchange chief executive Jeremy Penn commented:

“I am delighted that the Baltic Exchange, the world’s only source of independent maritime market information and the Centre for Shipping, Trade & Finance at Cass Business School, renowned for educating so many of our industry leaders, will be working together to provide an independent overview of the financial risks facing the shipping markets and the various physical and derivatives tools that are available to help mitigate these issues.”

Course leader Dr Amir Alizadeh said: “The shipping markets are becoming increasingly risky as fluctuations in freight rates and ship prices have increased substantially. This calls for prudent control of not only freight rates and ship prices, but also a range of other financial risks. By attending this course participants will learn how to analyse and measure the impact of financial risks involved in shipping investment and operations as well as select and execute the right strategy to minimise these risks and stabilise their cash flow.”

The Baltic Exchange will continue to run its successful Practical Chartering and Freight Derivatives courses with the Cambridge Academy of Transport.
