The Trading Forum aims at bringing together experts in the commodity area - from the industry, the government and civil society – to explore current issues in the area of commodity trading.
The commodity trading industry is experiencing turbulent times and the landscape is constantly changing. Competition has increased, the regulatory framework is being adapted to emerging pressure from civil society, we also witness a transition to renewables in the energy arena and information technology appears to be increasing the pace of change.
How can merchants continue navigating at cruise speed through storm after storm? How can they adapt to a constantly changing environment. This changing environment will be discussed in the following 3 panels :
1. New regulatory landscape on derivatives
2. Role of markets in the energy transition
3. How information technology is transforming the industry ?
This event is organiseb by the Swiss Research Institute on Commodities Foundation (SRIC).
