Integrated Risk Management Program (IRMP®)
INTL FCStone’s Integrated Risk Management Program (IRMP®) is a comprehensive, hands-on process that helps companies identify their total commodity risk and develop integrated strategies to mitigate that risk. Managed by our expert consultants, the program helps companies protect their margins against price volatility and enhance their bottom line in six steps:
Our consultants meet with your management team to gain a comprehensive understanding of your business and its commodities exposures – from the goods the company directly purchases, produces, processes, or distributes as part of its core business, to inputs like energy and financial components such as interest rates and foreign currencies.
Drawing on deep market expertise and our extensive proprietary database, our consultants conduct an in-depth analysis of your company’s historical pricing data and the current and projected global supply-and-demand situation for all of the commodities you deal in. This enables us to not only identify but quantify all of your company’s commodity risk for you.
Comprehensive Risk Review
Based on our deep analysis, we provide you with a comprehensive review of your risk exposures and discuss what measures, if any, that your company may currently have in place to mitigate your risks. We also discuss your risk tolerance across these commodities.
Using your input from the risk review process, our consultants develop a comprehensive risk management strategy comprising a wide range of innovative and proven financial tools that are tailored specifically to your company’s commodity exposures and risk preferences.
With your approval, our consultants will execute the program components on your behalf. That includes conducting daily market analysis and engaging in necessary trading through INTL FCStone’s global resources.
Dynamic Reporting and Adjustments
After implementation, our consultants will provide you with meticulous, in-depth monthly and year-end reports that explicitly detail the program’s impact on the company’s financial performance. They will also adjust the strategy on a continual basis as the company’s financial picture and market conditions change.
