Commodity Risk Management

Operating margins in today’s marketplace are razor-thin and even the slightest fluctuation in input, production, or transportation costs can turn your business upside down. This exposure to market fluctuation is defined as market risk.  For many businesses, risk management tools can be used to take some of the uncertainty out of the equation and help protect your margins.

Developing and implementing a risk management plan can be a daunting endeavor. The FCM Division of StoneX Financial Inc.'s risk management professionals can guide you in the process of risk management and help determine what tools are appropriate for your business. 

Risk Management is about taking control of your business and protecting your margins, rather than allowing the whims of the market to define your success. StoneX works with customers through its Integrated Risk Management Program. 

An IRMP customer can expect StoneX’s Risk Management Consultants to:
