Risk Management

Stability in metals trading

Many participants are concerned about the price and market risks of metals trading, but it is not a core focus of their operations. Working with MAN CORP can help bridge the knowledge gap. Our team of risk-management specialists has a suite of solutions at their fingertips. We turn volatility into stability, limiting risk and uncertainty to optimise cash flow and the bottom line.

Stellar attention, fierce execution

High-turnover metals and minerals experience rapid price changes and shipping bottlenecks, creating a challenging environment for producers and supply chain participants. They require active risk management strategies to ensure both margin and certainty in physical supply. At MAN CORP, we build layers of optionality into supply chain contracts to mitigate these risks. Your business will benefit from greater flexibility and commercial advantage around the performance of your operations.

Every risk is an opportunity

At MAN, we know that every uncertainty is a chance to be proactive instead of reactive. Our global team are experts in physical commodities trading and collectively have over 100 years of industry practice. We partner with clients to develop bespoke price-risk management solutions built around the business’s specific needs. Together, we can minimise risk, maximise opportunity and find solutions that drive profitability.
