Virtual Barrels with Ilia Bouchouev

In this episode, Ilia Bouchouev joins Paul Chapman to discuss his new book, ‘Virtual Barrels: Quantitative Trading in the Oil Markets”. What are virtual barrels? How has oil trading been fundamentally changed due to them? What has that meant for flat price, participants and trading strategies? The book is a comprehensive exploration of quantitative trading in the markets and introduces innovative approaches to pricing oil options and advances the theory of storage. Ilia is the Managing Partner at Pentathlon Investments, a Senior Research Fellow at Oxford Institute of Energy Studies and an Adjunct Professor at NYU.
