We aim to embed our skills in your business, building commodity risk management programs from bottom up or upgrading your existing program.

Risk Audit

Metals company boards have at different times expressed concern as to whether their business needs a risk management program or whether their existing hedge program is meeting its goals, especially so with increased commodity price volatility. Experienced people who have built and run risk management programs are required. We are called in to:

  • provide a comprehensive analysis of commodity pricing risk embedded in commercial practices
  • review existing hedge practice

Work is conducted with their teams, reviewing commercial agreements, processes, control systems and reporting. When required we create a financial model of their exposures and their financial impact is evaluated. The recommendations we make for improvement often lead to ongoing involvement between us and their risk management teams to achieve lasting results.
