NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/28/13 -- Capital Link's 5th Annual "Global Commodities, Energy & Freight; Linking Derivatives & Physical Markets" Forum will take place Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at the Metropolitan Club in New York City.

Entering its fifth year, this event remains the only forum of its kind dedicated to commodities, energy, and freight. By focusing on these three strategic areas, which are followed by the same investor and trader universe, Capital Link is able to attract a significantly larger, target audience of industry professionals. Last year's attendance exceeded 500.

This Forum features a series of presentations and panels on topics of contemporary interest as well as a review of the trends and developments in key areas such as commodities (iron ore, steel, fertilizers, coal), energy (crude oil and oil products) and the dry bulk, tanker and container freight markets. The Forum discusses the trends and developments in the physical markets of commodities, energy and freight and then how these trends impact the derivatives activity including dry bulk, tanker and container FFAs, trading and clearing, credit and counterparty issues, legal issues, accounting and auditing, the use of derivatives for trading and risk management. Special focus this year will be on the Dodd Frank Regulatory reforms.

The forum will bring together senior decision makers such as: commodity and shipping risk managers, financial analysts, risk advisors, commodity traders, hedge fund managers, shipping fund investors, commercial bankers, ship owners, CEOs, ship operators, ship managers, charterers, shipbrokers, law firms, and financial media -- who are keen on working together to capitalize on this booming global derivatives market in addition to sharing their respective plans for growth and future financing requirements.

The half day forum is structured into provocative panel discussions, roundtables and presentations by top industry experts followed by a networking cocktail reception.
The regulatory updates-key changes since implementation of Dodd Frank and key deadlines facing commodities firms; what is the current treatment of commodity options? Cross-border issues: US vs. non-US regulations; Swap Dealer registration and execution facilities-what can we expect? What to expect from CFTC Enforcement Division in policing new swaps regime? etc.
