IEORE4715 Commodity Derivatives (1.5)

Instructor: Mark Higgins

Commodities markets have been much in the public eye recently as volatility has increased and they changed from markets dominated by physical participants to ones which have a significant investor component. The largest banks either already have profitable commodities franchises already or are actively building them, and money managers and funds are increasingly including these assets in their portfolio mix. The end result is a dramatic increase in focus on these markets from all aspects of the financial markets, including the quantitative end. (Formerly IEOR E4723)
