Softwood lumber is one of the world's most volatile commodities. At Marex Solutions, we have significant experience in creating customised hedging solutions to successfully manage this volatility. We work with participants across the lumber supply chain, from producing mills to distributors and consumers. We also work with integrated producers, helping to manage their exposures to paper, pulp and recycled products.
Marex Solutions is fast becoming one of the largest lumber hedging houses in the world. Our traders account for up to a third of the open interest in all tradeable futures and options contracts of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
Our forestry customers enjoy the ability to hedge a diverse universe of market risks:
We give you the ability to hedge your exposures to these markets and more. This broad market coverage, combined with the tools to effectively manage your portfolio, give you the ability to manage your hedging portfolio with complete predictability.
Smart Risk Management
Forestry markets face increasingly more complex and challenging risks: market volatility, supply chain challenges, railroad capacity, pest control, geopolitical risks, climate awareness & currency exposure.
Our customers value our tailored risk management solutions in that they provide protection against these risks.
While this all results in a more predictable bottom line and improved profitability, what our clients value most is the flexibility we offer through our tailored hedging solutions.
Next Generation Hedging
We believe that as commodity markets become more complex and volatile, the tools required to effectively manage your risks will need to evolve at an increasing rate.
We offer you full access to the AGILE platform. AGILE gives you complete transparency of your hedging portfolio and how it will behave under various market conditions. This gives you visibility of exactly how effective your hedging activity is, and where you can optimise your hedging further.
Leveraging cutting edge technology allows us to deliver the powerful tools required to do this job effectively directly to you: anywhere, anytime.
