Commodity Risks: How to Identify and Implement a Corporate Hedging Program


Understand the importance of hedging properly and gain a framework for taking the first steps toward implementation.

Many corporations have shied away from hedging, not recognizing the financial risks and exposure they are taking by not doing so, believing prices will stay static or manageable. They have not properly evaluated the exposure they face. They also shy away from hedging because they are not knowledgeable about futures and options, believing these financial instruments are risky rather than perceiving them as an insurance policy to help mitigate risk. This presentation will help you recognize the importance of hedging properly and provide a framework for taking the first steps toward implementation. This workshop is critical for companies that might have acquired a business that now face new financial risks and exposures they may not have had before.
