A 5-Day Masterclass in the Energy Markets


2 - 6 November 2020

Virtual Classroom

As energy market specialists, we must understand developing market trends and their consequences. This course makes use of a unique energy capabilities model which will help you understand the key attributes required of an energy trading firm of the future.

You will learn about the three key skills required by firms in the future:

After this course's strategy and horizon scanning session, you will learn to anticipate the consequences of market scenarios and consequential liquidity needs.

Here's what you'll cover:

  • Detailed analysis of the most important cashflow/financial risks of energy companies operating in deregulated markets
  • A fundamental review of business model types in in the context of “know your customer”
  • The main drivers of global commodity flows
  • How players organised themselves in their respective markets with and outline of the risks and rewards of their consequential business models
