All operations in the physical commodities industry are directly affected by price volatility and market events. A lack of a strategy, or more specifically a lack of a hedging facility can leave participants exposed. Risk comes not only in the form of price volatility but also exchange rate volatility, in the worst instances this can cause an otherwise profitable business to become unprofitable. There are facilities that can entirely eliminate these types of uncertainty and bring peace of mind.
Financing global transactions carries far more risk than their domestic counterparts. This risk comes in the form not only of financial loss but also political in some cases. In such scenarios it makes sense to utilise trade-specific lending facilities, not only for leverage but also knowledge. A commodities deal that is well structured can be virtually risk free in a financial respect if structured in the correct way.
