Commodity Trade Risk Management (Summary)
A Complete Decision Support Center at your fingertips
Let's suppose you have a framework of hedging strategies with derivatives along with a means of properly documenting transactions in line with hedge accounting practices.
At any given time, you may have multiple asset strategies on Excel sheets, market data, brokerage statements, terminal management and separate modular legacy systems to monitor and track records.
How efficiently does your team manage all of this data?
One of the biggest challenges in both small and large trading firms is managing data under a central repository.
In past, legacy CTRM systems were known to be extremely costly and a major challenge to get up and running. Many systems were priced out of range for small businesses looking to manage simple hedge structures forcing operators to resort to Excel spreadsheets.
It's important to regularly monitor and manage positions as market environments change with information readily available. Whether you're small SME hedging a few transactions in your business cycle or an international firm managing price risk on multiple products, you need the ability to quickly evaluate unfavorable hedge positions due to dynamic market and take action.
Typical concerns on deciding whether to use a CTRM are as follows:
- Time to get running
- Training and Support
