"Energy Hedging in Asia: Market Structure and Trading Opportunities"
Hardcover 250 pages (August 5, 2005)
Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan
This book focuses on the latest developments in the Asia Pacific community in terms of how deregulation and privatisation are bringing more risk to energy companies. In the light of these market changes, interest in energy risk management has grown substantially and is becoming a fiduciary responsibility of energy companies. As energy trading, power exchanges and hedging techniques establish themselves in the oil, power and gas sectors, so then do newer derivatives markets emerge in LNG hedging, weather derivatives and freight hedging. Fusaro and James, as seasoned market practitioners in the region, focus on these market changes and examine the future of Asian energy hedging.
