Commodity Risk Management
Manage Price, Counterparty Credit, Regulatory, and Operational Risk
Commodity market participants need the ability to define, measure, and control organization wide risk. Real-time position and mark-to-market P&L across physicals and derivatives is required, identifying exposures and enabling timely decisions and actions. These companies need market risk management software to capture, analyze, manage, and report transactions in real-time.
