About the course

This Oxford Advanced Energy Finance executive education program is designed to provide participants with a strong foundation for understanding energy finance. The course will address three areas of finance in an energy context: Pricing, asset valuation, and risk management.

The program will begin by developing participants’ understanding of energy markets, as well as how to forecast energy prices. The course will then consider valuation and the application of option theory to energy-related assets.

The course will focus on giving delegates an understanding of energy-related derivatives. Delegates will be taught the different derivative products and learn how to apply them in the energy markets to develop hedging and risk management strategies. Such strategies will specifically include energy end-users – producers or consumers – seeking to hedge the risks their corporations face from varying and uncertain energy prices.

By the end of the Oxford course delegates will leave with an understanding of the energy markets and how to manage the financial risks created by volatile energy prices. In addition, delegates will gain the skills to accurately value energy assets and use derivatives to mitigate energy price risk.
