Commodity Risk

Commodity Risk

Commodity businesses have greater dependence on effective risk management than traditional corporate treasuries, due to a wider variety of complex risks and challenges.

Some of the common risk factors that Commodity businesses are exposed to include:

  • Access to supply
  • Data from multiple sources and systems
  • Key-man risk and undocumented procedures
  • Commoditiy price changes and foreign exchange
  • Counter-party risk and global stakeholders
  • Inadequate inventory accounting methods
  • Inadequate hedging on overseas products and supply
