Commodity Trading Risk Management

Commodity price volatility and market complexity is the 'new normal'. These impact businesses across different industry sectors in different ways. We see markets for commodities becoming more complicated as regulators introduce significant changes to the way commodity markets are controlled. These changes mean organisations must understand the importance of managing uncertainty and other variables effecting financial performance. With this in mind companies are engaging in commodity trading to add flexibility to their financial position characterised by a collective view of risk and a desire to create certainty in commodity price management.
