Hilary Till, Principal and co-founder Premia Capital Management LLC, and Research Associate, EDHEC Risk and Asset Management Research Centre will be speaking at the session entitled, "The International Commodity Boom: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" on Tuesday, 11 November at 3.45 pm:

"Commodities have been hot. Food and energy prices have soared, along with trading volumes. Because of their low correlation with stocks and bonds, commodities have been increasingly included in investor portfolios. But consumers are irate and governments have begun to question the role of futures trading in the painful price run up. (Futures trading has been banned on eight commodities in India.) What does the future hold for a continuation of the boom, for even wider participation in these markets, for further government actions to curtail trading, and for commodity product innovation? A panel of thoughtful, knowledgeable and entertaining panelists will address these questions and more.
