SMU Community Chat: Join CRU iron ore expert Erik Hedborg on Weds at 11 am ET

Written by Michael Cowden

CRU principal analyst Erik Hedborg, who has deep experience in iron ore and in pellets, will be the featured speaker on our next SMU Community Chat.

The chat will be on Wednesday, Jan. 24, at 11 am ET. You can learn more and register here.

What we’ll talk about

Hedborg will first talk about the structure of both the North American and the global iron ore markets. It should be a helpful explainer for those in the EAF-dominated US who might be more well-versed in scrap.

He’ll also discuss recent market trends in both ore and in pellets – and what those trends mean for steel markets here. Hedborg will in addition provide an outlook for 2024.

He’ll take your questions too. So please think of some good ones, and throw them in the Q&A on Wednesday!

Why should you listen?

Hedborg previously worked as an analyst in the iron ore industry with a special focus on the pellet market and China. He speaks fluent Chinese and holds a MSc from the Lulea University of Technology in Sweden and an MA from the Berlin School of Economics and Law.
