This workshop is designed to help grain originators gain a deeper understanding of structured contracts, including how options add flexibility that can benefit both growers and originators.

Topics Covered

Optionality in Cash Contracts 
Discussion of how structuring options in cash contracts can offer
varying degrees of flexibility for growers to participate in higher prices along with looking at the strength of different position structures and which contracts best compliment various market conditions.

Case Studies and Group Exercise
Comparing results of three structures under separate market
paths to review why certain contracting alternatives are more effective than others in different situations. A group exercise will reinforce these concepts in a separate historical marketing scenario.

Advantages of Proactive Contract Management 
As market conditions change, so should contract structures. We will review potential strategy adjustments that growers may want to consider and how additional value can be added for both the grower and the originator over the contracting life cycle.

Grower Margin Management Simulation 
Integrated online simulation incorporating cash contracts, both firm and flexible, to manage the risk of a grower’s profit margin through a historical market.

Qualifies for NASBA Continuing Education (CPE).

Cost: $195 for first registrant and $50 for each additional registrant.
