Find out how Mercuria manages commodity risk
With commodity prices highly volatile and supply and demand factors very uncertain, it is a dificult time to be a treasurer at a company with large exposure to commodities risk.
One area for concern is how China will manage it supplies in the next six months. Experts predict that as a result of production cuts in certain commodities, despite steady or even increasing demand, cetain asset prices will remain elevated – aluminium, nickel, and zinc, for example. Copper, on the other hand is expected to dip within the year.
However, it is not wise to make too many assumptions, less so not to hedge your key business exposures. So many factors affect the price of hard and soft commodities that a risk management strategy is essential.
