marcus evans | 3rd Edition Commodity Markets Modelling, Analytics & Risk Management | 12-14 September | London

30-06-2022 | treasuryXL | marcus evans | LinkedIn |

We are proud to announce our media partnership with marcus evans group for the 3rd Edition Commodity Markets Modelling, Analytics & Risk Management conference taking place in London on 12-14 September 2022.

London, UK

12 – 14 September, 2022 | 08:30 BST



There are many challenges involved with Commodity Markets Modelling. A major one at the moment is the volatility within the energy markets, specifically the spike in the price of energy including gas throughout the European and world markets. Another challenge which has been there for slightly longer is the generating and accessing of quality data which can feed modelling, in particular AI and machine learning models. There also exists a specific challenge around the modelling of renewables which has become an area of increased interest over the last few years. Finally, there is always a push to have new techniques which can help to improve the performance of trading teams in a very competitive market.

With this in mind, the marcus evans 3rd edition Commodity Markets Modelling, Analytics & Risk Management conference held between 12-14 September, 2022 in London, UK will provide the much-needed techniques on optimising modelling and trading within commodity markets. The event will deliver attendees tailored sessions on accessing the best data types to assist accurate modelling and forecasting. Practical solutions will be delivered regarding battery storage and modelling of intermittent weather sources such as wind and solar energy. Finally, new innovation tools which can assist traders and decision makers in commodity markets spaces will be explored and evaluated.

Attending This Premier marcus evans Conference Will Enable You To:

  • Obtain the best practices for quantitative modelling in commodity markets
  • Appreciate the current need to adjust existing quantitative modelling and trading techniques
  • Overcome the limitations caused by spikes in energy price data
  • Assess business priorities in consideration of macroeconomic change
  • Ensure your institution is insulated from market volatility

Best Practices and Case Studies from:

  • Michael Haigh, Managing Director, Global Head of Commodities Research, Societe Generale
  • Cetin Karakus, Global Head of Quantitative and Analytical Solutions, BP
  • Barbara Lempp, CEO of EFET Deutschland, European Federation of Energy Traders

Treasury Management & Corporate Finance | Become an official Register Treasurer

23-06-2022 | treasuryXLVU Amsterdam | LinkedIn |

Improve your professional practice by taking a broad, conceptual and professional view on Treasury



The postgraduate programme in Treasury Management & Corporate Finance at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is running now for 25 years. In close contact with the treasury community, the VU keeps the curriculum up-to-date and relevant for professionals. Professional relevance is guaranteed by about 10 core lecturers and 20 guest lecturers from our partners KPMG, Orchard Finance Consultants, PWC, Zanders and by other finance professionals.

About the programme

The programme takes a broad view over Treasury Management and Corporate Finance from the of a non-financial corporate. Most graduates have an MSc and at least 3 years of experience in Treasury. Participants with a bachelor degree and sufficient treasury experience are successful in this programme as well

The programme offers participants an 18-month learning environment that stimulates professional development in 2 ways:

(1) Evolve as an academic professional. The goal is to facilitate the development as an all-round treasury professional. This is done by both building a sufficient knowledge base and training skills to apply general knowledge in specific cases. In addition, participants will be challenged to become experts in their own specific field of interest.

(2) Engage in career development and networking within the Treasury community. Increase your insights and expand your network in your treasury network. The programme may inspire participants to take next steps in their careers.

Along these two main lines of benefits, we are planning to give more information and explanation in two follow-up online sessions/recordings which will be posted on this platform in the coming weeks.

Why should I start with the programme?

The most important takeaway from this post is the fact that the TM&CF programme is NOT a long course acquiring just knowledge. It is much much more than that. Apart from just knowledge the programme puts a lot of attention on creative application of knowledge to your specific business situation. It trains you how to become a professional expert to some areas in the field of Treasury you have chosen. The programme helps you to connect with other members of the treasury community and to build your own professional network by connecting with fellow participants.

The programme provides you a substantial boost in your career, as the qualification is acknowledged in the labour market, and/or game-changer in your professional life as a Treasurer. It is a must-follow for all passionate about treasury. Successful completion of the programme results in the title of Register Treasurer, which is highly valued within the treasury community.
