Livestock & Proteins
We offer our livestock and proteins customers a complete spectrum of hedging solutions, all powered by the AGILE platform: real-time pricing, portfolio analysis, scenario planning, direct communication with the trading team.
As we enter a new age where livestock producers and animal protein consumers face unprecedented volatility, our clients rely on us to source liquidity in previously illiquid markets, allowing them to eliminate correlation risk brought on by cross-hedging with exchange traded derivatives.
Our livestock and proteins customers enjoy the ability to hedge a diverse universe of market risks:
• Live Cattle
• Feeder Cattle
• Lean Hogs
• Soybean Meal
• USDA Settled Beef Products
1. Choice Beef Cutout
2. 90% Lean Fresh Beef Trim
3. 50% Lean Fresh Trim
• USDA Settled Pork Products
• Pork Cutout
• 72% Lean Pork Trim
• 42% Lean Pork Trim
• 23-23% Trimmed Select Hams
• Pork Belly Primal
We give you the ability to hedge your exposures to these markets with both exchange-traded derivative look-alikes and USDA index settled swaps on the most heavily traded products in the animal protein space.
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
The protein market faces increasingly more complex and challenging risks: export uncertainty, consumer demand fluctuation, geopolitical risks, market volatility, weather, currency exposure and many more.
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.
We strive to remove as much uncertainty as possible in our clients' hedge programs, enabling them to trade swaps on the actual products they produce and consume, rather than relying on deteriorating correlations between exchange-traded derivatives and unlisted assets.
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.
