Commodities Management

Producers, consumers, processors, intermediaries, governments, and investors that have commodity interests seek CPM Group to advise and assist them in managing their price risks. As an independent advisor since its inception in 1986, CPM has guided clients through the commodities management process in identifying and measuring risks, hedge evaluation and structuring, counterparty introduction and negotiation, and execution.

Our commodity price risk management group leverages the firm's in-house independent research and financial advisory knowledge to effectively assist clients in obtaining well timed, properly priced, and optimally structured suitable products. As a non-dealer market participant, CPM does not tie client companies to specific institutions. Instead, we structure hedging strategies that best service our clients and seek the best available terms from a stable of potential hedging service providers in order to meet clients' commodity price risk management needs. In addition, CPM aids companies in restructuring unfavorable legacy agreements.

CPM Group adds value by advising on the nuances of managing commodity price risks.  We sometimes take on a larger role, partnering with clients' finance, treasury, procurement, and/or sales teams on projects. Our hedging advisory services are client tailored and client driven.
