Virtually every single commodity business has some degree of exposure to currency movements. As geopolitics have an increasing impact on currency volatility, hedging this exposure is increasingly a vital component of any hedging programme.
We provide the ability to hedge your currency exposure alongside your commodity price risk by utilising our access to a multitude of top-tier bank and non-bank liquidity providers.
We provide currency hedging services across a diverse set of currencies, from all the major & minor currencies through to the exotic currencies of emerging markets.
