Managing corn price risk
Let seasoned StoneX professionals design and deliver a comprehensive suite of risk management solutions to address your business needs and achieve your business goals.
At every stage of the corn production chain, participants face the risk of adverse price movements caused by a multitude of uncontrollable factors. Corn futures and options, and over the counter products provide a means to manage this risk and take advantage of potential profit opportunities.
We design and execute hedging programs built on proven commodity risk management principles for corn merchandisers and originators and are not speculatively oriented. Futures and options, and over the counter products are used to assist grain marketing by providing opportunities to retain margins and manage risk.
Commodity risk management
Our award-winning consultants understand both the futures and the physical markets. To limit risk and uncertainty and improve margins and bottom-line results, we will construct a risk-management program tailored to your company's needs, then work closely with you to execute it.
StoneHedge® Merchandising System
Streamline origination. Automate offers. Simplify hedging. Our web-based merchandising system allows commercial grain customers to automate hedging and incorporate cash bids, stream quotes, offer/order initiation and manage hedges through one easy-to-use platform.
Clearing & execution
Our suite of institutional-grade futures clearing & execution services delivers broad exchange access and transparency to clients worldwide.
Over-the-counter (OTC) products deliver benefits like exchange-traded futures and options. Still, they can offer customizable terms (e.g., non-standard quantities, strike prices, expiration dates, etc.) that align more closely with your unique hedging needs.
Each of our team members has years of experience and working relationships with top traders and emerging managers. We utilize in-depth statistical research to help find the right combination of managers for a portfolio and provide reports to assist you in evaluating these traders daily. Selecting a manager is ultimately the client's choice.
