Commodity supply chains came into focus in the first half of 2020, with extreme price volatility affecting a wide range of commodities including energy, food, copper, and gold. Will that volatility persist as global economies rebound?

Topics for discussion will include:

  • How we can account for recent vast differences in performance among commodity sectors
  • Perspectives on broad, diversified exposure vs. tactical single-commodity positions
