Extending our support to the international risk community, GRI is sponsoring a conference semester at the Institut Henri Poincaré in France. The theme of the conference semester is Commodity Derivatives Markets: Industrial Organization, Regulation, and Financialization, and includes events in France and Italy from March to November.
