Position yourself for rapid changes in challenging environments

TMA Sweden invite to an evening focusing on hedging tactics, financial structuring and legal considerations when working in sectors with rapidly changing fundamentals. Commodities like oil combined with asset finance opportunities in shipping and offshore often include complicated legal structures in different jurisdictions.

TMA have invited three experts in this area: Janet Claesson: Former Preem Treasurer, Kristian Pande Horn: Head  of Corporate Finance in Arctic Securities and Erlend Lous,  Head of Shipping Aviation Financing and Energy in the Norwegian lawfirm Simonsen Vogt Wiig. 

Janet Claesson (Left) is a senior management consultant at Sevenco, with a background from several leading positions in Preem, the largest oil refiner in  Scandinavia. She has a broad operating experience of raw materials-based production and trading.

Janet has extensive hands-on experience of hedging price and currency, negotiating structured commodity finance and optimizing working capital and other uses of capital.

As Treasurer, she managed price risks, liquidity and lender relationships through the turbulence in the oil market of the past decade and the resulting refinancing of Preem.

Kristian Pande Horn (Center) heads the Corporate Finance department in Arctic Securities and has extensive experience from various restructurings, in particular from the oil service sector.

Erlend Lous (Right) is Head of Shipping Aviation Financing and Energy in the Norwegian lawfirm Simonsen Vogt Wiig. Erlend has extensive experience with shipping related transactions, financing, restructuring and general corporate/M&A, and regularly assists several Norwegian and international banks, the major arrangers of Norwegian sale/lease back projects and ship owners. 

Erlend was the head of the Singapore office of Simonsen Vogt & Wiig from 2007 – 2009 and have assisted clients with several negotiations and restructurings of newbuilding contracts in Asia during the shipping downturn in 2008/2009.
