20 May 2015 from 1100
On the 20th May the global Dry FFA community will assemble in London for their annual forum. This will be the only market-encompassing gathering of it's kind worldwide in 2015 and comes at a critical stage in the freight market cycle. Topics covered will include in-depth analysis of the global bulk commodity bulk carrier fleet profile, deliveries, potential order book cancellations and scraping prospects in the light of cheaper available energy. We hope to present the finance house position on lending to owners using FFA's to hedge their earnings as well as an overview of recent shift in scale of iron ore production that we are seeing across the Southern hemisphere mining countries.
That evening the FFABA with the Baltic Exchange invite all attendees to attend the Baltic Exchange Chairman's Cocktail Party at Christ Church, Spitalfields. This spectacular event, attended by around 600 members of the maritime trading community alongside City and Government representatives will offer a uniquely entertaining end to this year's Forum and a fantastic opportunity to meet a wide spectrum of professionals from across the physical and FFA shipping markets.
