1st Australasian Commodity Markets Conference
Organised and hosted by the Centre for Financial Risk, the Conference provided a forum for presenting and discussing high-quality research in all areas of economics and finance related to commodity markets, with an emphasis on – but not limited to – the Australasian aspects of commodity markets and energy risk.
Held in conjunction with the Journal of Commodity Markets, the Conference included keynotes by Marcel Prokopczuk, Professor of Finance at Leibniz University Hannover, Germany, and a double plenary with speakers Thomas Schmitz, Director EEX Group Sales - Global Commodities and Chief Commercial Officer of eeX in Singapore, and Professor Graham Town, from the Department of Engineering at Macquarie University.
There were over 40 international and national presenters and attendees including the Chief and Deputy General Managers of the Securities Exchange Board of India. The conference program included papers on gas and agricultural markets, trading strategies, risk management and premiums, and hedging and derivatives, all from an Australasian perspective.
The conference organisers Professor Stefan Trueck and Dr Lurion De Mello would like to acknowledge and thank the inaugural Australasian Commodity Markets Conference Sponsors: eeX, Woollahra Partners and AFAANZ for their contribution to a very successful event.
