Risk Management Solutions

Risk Management Solutions (RMS) provides a range of bespoke customised, client-centred solutions to producers, distributors, manufacturers, processors, wholesalers, retailers, end-users, importers and exporters across the globe including our various business partners on the physical side of Olam’s business.

The array of customised over-the-counter (OTC) solutions, with competitive pricing, precisely caters to each of our clients’ need of commodity price risk management. Olam’s background in commodities gives us a unique advantage in this area, enabling us to provide our counterparties with the most appropriate and cost effective solutions that are hassle-free in their execution and documentation.

The pricing capabilities of the RMS department rely on a leadership position in market making achieved on the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange (LIFFE), and a steadily growing share on the Intercontinental Exchange / Chicago Board of Trade (ICE/CBOT), on which we provide 2 way markets on exchange-traded options through a well-established broker/dealer network.
