This edited collection discusses risk management in world agricultural markets. The emphasis is on the use of exchange-traded and OTC derivatives to manage price risk. Two specifically useful chapters are on collateral management and the development of warehouse receipt systems in developing countries. Chapters on the credit risk of OTC derivatives and sound practices for end-users of derivatives are informative but not specific to commodities. This is not an introduction to soft commodities markets and will appeal to soft commodities professionals with no prior experience with futures, forwards, swaps or options.
