The first module provides an introduction to commercial risk management and its application in shipping.
This module will investigate the most important aspects of commercial/business risks arising from charterparties, operations and claims issues. That means the risks allocated between the shipowner and the charterer throughout the chartering process (pre-fixture, fixture, execution of charter, post fixture, claims handling), from a financial, operational and legal perspective.
The third module uses case studies and examples to illustrate how financial risk management is affected by international shipping and vice versa. Throughout the module we put emphasis into the recent areas of interest for international shipping business. The downfall of the KG system in Germany, the trend of shipping problem loans and the expansion of the Brazilian shipbuilding industry are the first three chapters, which aim to provide examples in order to show a better picture of the market.
The aim of this module is to convey to the learner the basic understanding of the principles of Freight Derivatives. This is a risk management tool to try and alleviate freight risks in the highly volatile shipping industry.
This module explores the relationship between commercial risk management and environment and safety. It will also cover the regulations relevant to environmental and safety risk.
The final module is structured to provide students with a comprehensive analysis of the law and the principles of marine insurance.
