Price Risk Management and Hedging

How well do you forecast the margins in your business? Commodity price risk is inherent in manufacturing environments. If your business relies on commodity inputs, you’re already aware of how volatile markets can be.

  • Should you be hedging?
  • Are your hedges effective?
  • Are your purchase orders pricing under different terms than your sales contracts?
  • Do you offer annual fixed price agreements to your customers?

Managing price risk can be done in both the physical and financial commodity markets. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated. Hedging isn’t for everyone but every business should evaluate the potential costs & benefits. Our customized consulting process and solutions let you decide the risk tolerance of your business and gives you the clarity to see where natural hedging occurs and where price risk remains. With the remaining risk identified we can provide advice and solutions to lock your margins, either physically or financially. Don’t be a victim of markets swings and stop trying to time the market.
