Our origins began in the commodities business more than 150 years ago, when we started financing our clients' trade business throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Today our strength in commodity risk management builds on that history helping us to become the right partner for hedging, commodity-linked finance and investor products.

Commodity Price Risk Management

Commodity price fluctuations can significantly erode profit margins, debt serviceability, credit worthiness and undermine share price. We provide risk solutions to navigate volatile commodity markets - enabling clients to hedge against the unexpected.

Quantifying your commodity exposures

By examining all direct and indirect commodity-linked costs and revenues in our client's business, we can help identify, measure and model its exposure to prices.

The resulting financial model can then be 'stress tested' against extreme price movements, enabling clients to more accurately quantify and better manage the impact of commodity price fluctuations on your bottom line.

Commodity-linked financing solutions

We offer a range of tailored and flexible financing structures that integrate financing and commodity price risk management. These over-the-counter hedging solutions are specified with respect to size, tenor, currency and settlement to provide a more effective hedge than traditional futures.

Commodity-linked Investments

A desire for greater portfolio diversification and more effective hedging against inflation, and the fact that commodities performance typically has low or even negative correlation with other asset classes, has greatly increased investor interest in commodities.

We offer a wide range of commodity-linked investment strategies to suit all risk appetites and profiles. Our products guarantee all - or a portion of - the principal investment and a return correlated to commodity price movements.
