Advanced Commodity Finance

Course code : TF 201-11

Conservatively, commodity trade represents around 25% of world trade, or around US$4.5 Trillion per year.

Commodities regroup a vast array of raw materials which are at the root of most (if not all) of the manufactured products and food exchanged worldwide. These are the essentials of not just our lives, but the life of anyone around the world.

In this course, you will learn about the three types of commodities, their features, and the risks involved. Additionally, the course will cover how the major players and trading houses in this sector are shaping the supply chains and their respective roles. Lastly, we will cover the function of commodities trading from a banker’s perspective, and look at the various tools and documents required.
