What is risk management?
In the world of agribusiness there are many risks and uncertainties. Successful producers have a production game plan, utilizing the best technology including seed, chemicals, fertilizer, and equipment to manage the agronomic challenges they face. However, many producers fail to implement and execute a consistent, long-term risk management plan for their crop which leads to procrastination, emotional decision making, and frustration. Agribusinesses that are profitable over time implement sound and consistent risk management programs. They have no special insight or ability to predict where the market is going; however, they do use a set of consistent principles which guide their decision making.
Three important questions to ask:
Do I have a grain marketing strategy in place?
Do I have the time and discipline to execute this strategy?
Do I have a trusted, independent expert to assist in this process?
The ARC Group helps producers professionally merchandise their grain by following a disciplined risk management program which focuses on three key principles: futures, carry, and basis. All three need to be maximized to have a successful marketing plan.
The ARC Group is an independent local company. Futures and options contracts for hedging transactions are facilitated through advisors that are dually associated with our affiliate ARC Trading, LLC, a CFTC registered Introducing Broker and NFA member. Our advisors have the experience and expertise to help you implement and execute a merchandising plan tailored to your operation. We are completely aligned with your best interests by having a risk management strategy independent of all end users.
