Planning for Black Swans: How the Dairy Industry Can Predict the Next Unpredictable Event: Session 1

Thomas M. Wojno Senior Vice President IDFA


Are you prepared for the next “black swan”?
Market experts use the term to define unpredictable, catastrophic events that are beyond what is normally expected of a situation and bring extreme, unknowable consequences. The COVID-19 pandemic is our modern-day black swan, unleashing the most severe market volatility in history alongside one of the worst public health crises in generations.
Join IDFA and INTL FCStone Financial Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of StoneX Group Inc. this Thursday for the first of our special, three-part virtual series that will position the dairy industry to plan and react more swiftly when the next black swan is on the horizon. Featuring financial market experts and food industry leaders together in one unique webinar series, Planning for Black Swans will deconstruct the warning signs and fallout from COVID-19, and recommend practical risk-management strategies to help you recognize the unpredictable as the probable, and plan accordingly.
This limited series is being offered complimentary to IDFA members. Please find more information on this Thursday’s session below and register today!
Thursday, July 16 | 1:00 p.m. Eastern

What are “black swan” events? How often do we see extreme moves in financial markets? How should we anticipate and plan for these events? It’s easy to get caught off guard by the latest “unique” crises that we couldn’t possibly see coming. How can we better anticipate the unknown?
