With unpredictable grain market prices and market volatility in recent years, grain merchandisers and feed manufacturers routinely face stressful uncertainty. It can also be difficult to find new ways to manage price risk and generate grain origination. That’s why INTL FCStone Financial Inc. is hosting a day-and-a-half pure education event to highlight both tried and true risk management methods, and new alternatives for grain and oilseed traders.
The Kansas City Grain Merchandiser Risk Academy will focus on the foundation of the Cash, Futures, Options and OTC markets, as well as the key merchandising concepts of Hedging, Basis, Spreads and initiating customer contracts. You’ll also hear about the latest market developments and outlooks to help you maintain and potentially enhance your customer base.

Who Should Attend?
This program will benefit traders/risk managers, back-office staff and upper management by providing an understanding of the role price-risk management can have in enhancing their firm’s bottom line. Senior level college students who want to jump-start a career in grain merchandising will particularly benefit from getting a first-hand theoretical and practical look at industry topics as well as networking opportunities.
