Financial Risk Management
Helping Mitigate Risk
Our services include agriculture, energy, foreign exchange and interest rate hedging, trading and exposure management solutions. We deliver solutions tailored to meet the specific needs of corporate, commercial, financial institution, energy, real estate and private banking clients.
Our risk management professionals work closely with customers to determine the most appropriate hedging strategy for their specific situation.
We identify and design customized energy risk management solutions, including hedging and trading for energy producers and end users. Our energy professionals assist hedgers by protecting cash flows against adverse price movement in the crude oil, natural gas and fuel oil markets.
We hedge products such as live cattle, feeder cattle, corn, soybeans, soybean meal and wheat for agriculture producers and end users. The versatility of electronic trading and direct access to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT) trading floors provides a competitive advantage. There are no fees for commission trading, initial margin and exchange.
We offer interest rate risk management vehicles such as interest rate swaps, caps, floors and collars. We work closely with customers to determine the most appropriate hedging strategy for their specific situation, starting from the beginning and working through, if appropriate, to deal execution.
For companies facing foreign exchange (FX) exposure through international transactions or investments abroad, we maintain an acute understanding of the FX risks involved and help manage them. High volumes of FX transactions are processed daily through our numerous foreign currency accounts and network of correspondent bank relationships. We also facilitate incoming and outgoing payments in many different currencies.
