Why are you interested in interest and currency management? Every day the global market provides your company with new opportunities which you should take advantage of. At the same time the markets are becoming more dynamic.
Do commodity price developments on the world markets matter to you?
The global population, growing prosperity in the so-called emerging markets and associated changes in dietary habits, uncertain harvests following extreme weather events as well as the influence of politics – none of these change the financial risks for your business calculations. A key issue in this context is managing commodity risk and securing sufficient funds with two different partners – the broker and the bank.
Take advantage of this factor for success – hedging and financing from a single source.
We are Germany’s principle bank with years of experience in price hedging and financing of our customers’ agricultural commodities. Our access to international exchanges enables you to enter into contracts that offer safe assumptions for your calculations. Moreover, we can also provide support for your risk management in the areas of interest rates and currencies. As a financial partner to companies that produce, trade or process agricultural commodities, we keep track of the whole picture and are able to identify significant developments at an early stage, providing a perfect springboard for tailor-made financing solutions and risk hedging.
Tap into the wealth of experience and industry expertise.
We are the only German bank that offers commodity management with futures and options on agricultural commodities. You can benefit from direct access to the capital market through our own trading centre and the worldwide efforts of our traders in the global commodity markets. The Bank merely operates as an intermediary for access to the markets and does not act at its own risk. Furthermore, we give you access to our “NORD/LB Commodity Trader” electronic trading platform, which you can use to trade contracts directly online. A further benefit is being able to see real-time prices and your long positions.
