Managing Base Metals risks involves looking at the integrated supply & trading chain - ensuring both the financial and physical risks are managed in an appropriate manner.


Why? – In short, it’s a Global Market:

  • Global Economic Supply/Demand Fundamentals impact all players regardless of location
  • Global Derivatives Trading on LME
  • Warehousing capability
  • Logistics cost management
  • Mature market dynamics

Whether you are an originator, manufacturer, trader or distributor of metals based products, your value chain is impacted by the interplay of the price and volume variability inherent in global markets. Fundamental factors are important, but market participants can’t ignore the technical analysis required to monitor the 24/7 world of derivatives trading. Managing earnings volatility requires a more comprehensive approach to the complexity inherent in commodity trading and risk management that goes beyond traditional price risk management alone.
