Emma Jenkins - Metals Only

Emma has a First Class Honours degree and gold medal in Mathematics from Trinity College, Dublin, and over 20 years of banking experience.

She commenced her banking career with Goldman Sachs and initially her roles were mathematically focussed and she worked as a quantitative analyst on swaps, interest rate options and FX desks implementing pricing and risk management models for traders, salespeople and risk managers. She became involved in commodity markets in the late 1990s when she joined Credit Suisse in Sydney as a marketer of structured gold derivative products. Shortly thereafter she transferred to the London office and was instrumental in the integration of the short-date flow and structured derivatives businesses.

At Credit Suisse, she developed her specialised commodity skills through vanilla and structured transactions on a physical and paper basis with the spectrum of participants in the metals markets, in both derivative and lending markets.

She subsequently moved to Macquarie Bank as a director specialising in precious and base metals derivatives sales. Her clients used both LME futures and OTC derivatives. She worked closely with the bank's base metals traders to determine how the bank would hedge exotic OTC derivatives with LME futures.

Delegates on her courses have ranged from central banks and regulators, large miners, traders and manufacturers, wealth managers, through to small import/export businesses, thereby giving her a unique insight into the issues facing the many market participants.

Her consultancy work has included:

  • Valuing embedded derivatives in base metals physical contracts and determining appropriate derivative hedges
  • Negotiating copper prepaid financings with long-dated copper options
  • Analysing the metal risk position of a copper components manufacturer and recommending a hedge strategy combining physical, LME and OTC products
  • Significantly reducing an insurance claim arising from delayed metal shipments by demonstrating how a derivative hedge would have reduced losses
  • Acting as an expert witness on behalf of an LME member with respect to disputed aluminium OTC swaps
