The Baltic Exchange and Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers present the second series of lectures in Shanghai, Singapore, Athens and London.

Intended to support and develop those working in chartering and operations. The series will examine topical issues facing those working in these roles, offering advice on best practice in critical situations and insight into the changing patterns affecting sectors within shipping. Taking place near the end of every other month and including lunch where applicable, the lectures are free to all those working at Baltic companies or are ICS members or company members.

Supported by the major broking houses, this initiative is aimed at supporting those developing their careers in shipping and encouraging better advocacy across the future generation of industry leaders.

The next lecture 4 of 5 will be on 27 March


Our upcoming lecture on financial tools in chartering focuses on the financial considerations that principals make and how they can impact decisions and their activity in the physical market.

Looking at finance and common hedges available through FFAs, currency and other related commodity markets, our thought leaders will examine common structures in place used by counterparts to limit book uncertainty when trading in volatile markets and how these external factors can influence physical freight market and fixtures.
