A complimentary webinar for investment professionals jointly hosted with CFA Institute and CAIA Association

The prices of many commodities are on the rise. The energy transition has shifted the market's focus to green technology and renewable fuels while oil prices have rebounded in line with consumer confidence and a return to pre-pandemic levels of economic activity in many regions.

Commodities reflect current, real-world, "spot supply and demand" conditions. With surges in demand helping fuel this trend, could we be entering a commodities super-cycle?

Join Fiona Boal, Head of Commodities and Real Assets at S&P Dow Jones Indices, Stratos Pourzitakis, Director of Society Advocacy at CFA Institute, and Daniel Ung, Head of Quantitative Research and Analysis at SPDR ETFs as they share insights into today's commodities market and how commodities are being incorporated into asset allocation strategies.

Speakers will also explore questions including:

  • What are the key factors driving the rise in commodity prices?
  • How is the metals market evolving in response to the low-carbon movement, and how has this changing market affected the role that commodities are playing in portfolios?
  • What types of strategies may provide an inflation hedge, and which have had the highest inflation beta historically?

Speakers include:

  • Fiona Boal, Head of Commodities and Real Assets, S&P Dow Jones Indices
  • Stratos Pourzitakis, Ph.D, Director, Society Advocacy Engagement APAC, CFA Institute
  • Daniel Ung, CFA, CAIA, FRM, Head of Quantitative Research and Analysis, ETF Model Portfolio Solutions, State Street Global Advisors EMEA & APAC
