The Event

The Live Rice Index presents LRI Live in London, UK, the rice industry’s first dedicated conference on price risk management. This will be an opportunity for key industry members such as traders, brokers, millers, exporters, importers, government agencies and banks to learn about price risk management tools and practices and understand the Live Rice Index’s role in catalysing the financialisaton of the rice industry.

Our focus will be on market related pricing mechanisms, the emerging derivatives contracts, hedging and other practical commercial applications, as well as the use of Over-The-Counter (OTC) markets to manage price risk. In addition, we will explore the roles of Price Reporting Agencies (PRA), indices, benchmarking, commodity exchanges in respect to clearing and screen trading in facilitating price risk management. The LRI will also uncover its price discovery processes, methodology and PRA principles. We hope to build a platform to better inform industry members of the LRI’s price discovery processes, the emerging rice derivatives contracts, in addition to risk management tools and practices.
