Event Description:
With the booming interest in commodity investment-as investors seek alternatives to more traditional investments-there is a growing demand for up-to-date investment information. Intelligent Commodity Investing presents a breadth of opinions for sophisticated investors. The book provides comprehensive insights into commodity investment from the perspective of The Investor, The Active Manager, The Commodity Index Provider, The Risk Manager, and The Researcher.

At this panel, four different voices from the collection will be heard: Hilary Till, co-editor of the book and author of the “Long-Term Perspective on Commodity Futures Returns” section; Kenneth Armstead, co-author of “Commodity Returns: Implications for Active Management;” George Dowd, author of “The Move to Electronic Trading: What to Expect in the Natural-Resources Commodity Markets;” and Colin Waugh, who wrote “Collision: Investing for the New World Commodity Order.”
