The Role of Options and Forward Contracts Bridging Carbon and Financial Markets

Grattan MacGiffin, CCO of Allcot Group,  attended a PwC and CMIA hosted event in London on 19th June entitled ”The Role of Options and Forward Contracts Bridging Carbon and Financial Markets”

The workshop featured presentations from the Governor of the State of Acre in Brazil and his team who advanced the idea of using put and call options as an alternative to selling forward contracts. This approach would provide short term finance through the sale of premiums as well as payment at expiration date of the strike price. Active discussions concerning to role of development agencies and their role in attracting other investors; carbon pricing and structures made the event an informative exchange of views.”
