Cooperatives have industry-specific risk characteristics.  INTL FCStone Markets, LLC’s (IFM) OTC Structured Products are capable of addressing the following specific hedging concerns:

  • Trending Markets
  • End of Trend
  • Range-bound markets
  • Anticipation of steady to higher/steady to lower trends

For cooperatives who prefer OTC Vanilla Options, such products have the capability of offering a wider range of protection and payouts than generic Vanilla Contracts.  Much like our OTC Structured Products, our OTC Vanilla Options are customized to meet a client’s hedging needs.

IFM’s broad array of OTC Vanilla Option solutions can address the following hedging concerns:

  • Higher than desired margins
  • Complicated current hedging solutions
  • Existing hedge does not manage current market exposure

The effective use of Swaps and FX Forwards requires a thorough understanding of how the structures are created and implemented. We are committed to educating our consultants regarding derivatives who, in turn, stand ready to meet our customers’ needs. 

Our high caliber expertise in portfolio construction lends itself to successfully developing a customized hedging program. Our experienced team analyzes a client’s entire risk profile, combined with the client’s initial hedging target, in order to locate potential risks that the client may not have initially considered. We will assist you in building a comprehensive risk management strategy to help reduce market exposure.
