Our Services

While Commodity Risk Management Group does not attempt to be all things to all people, we are pretty certain that we have something for anyone who faces commodity market risk.  Moreover, we provide a suite of services that may stand alone or work in harmony with one another.  Please let us know how we can serve any one of your individual risk management needs.

  • Strategic Advisory

In today’s world of volatility and uncertainty, business owners on and off the farm are increasingly aware of the risks they face and recognize the need to address those risks. The issue for many is figuring out HOW to address them.  Our team's extensive knowledge and utilization of available risk management tools across multiple market environments allows CRMG to correctly direct clients towards solutions that best fit their situation.

  • Cross Market Channeling

Using the market to address risk is one thing.  Being able to cross over from one market to another to take full advantage of varying opportunities (basis, delivery location, cash generation, etc.) is another.  Commodity Risk Management Group harnesses its experience with traditional futures and options markets together with its alliances in cash commodity markets to provide you with the flexibility to transition from one marketplace to another.

  • Market Financing

In modern agriculture, there is no such thing as calm markets or stable pricing.  With the elevated costs of production and the ongoing need to plan business activity through volatile market conditions, one of the greatest needs of today’s operators is capital.  Backed by Straits Financial, Commodity Risk Management Group is able to extend financing to qualified hedgers on approved products.

  • Market Information

Commodity Risk Management Group values an informed client.  We strive to keep you up to date on what’s happening and what’s important.  Our site provides access to streaming market news, quotes and charts to keep you informed of the latest happenings.  Additionally, you have access to special reports and weekly newsletters to keep you briefed on current market events and how they effect your business.

  • Real Time Market Updates

  • Presentations, Seminars, & Classes

Among the staff of Commodity Risk Management Group (CRMG) are professional public speakers who are nationally recognized for bringing market education and information to groups throughout the country.  Ag lenders, cooperatives, crop insurance agencies, trade associations, grain elevators, feed and seed dealers, milk processors and oter ag businesses routinely introduce our staff to their clients.  Our presentations center on commodity price behavior and risk management practices in a light-hearted and simple, yet professional and producer-friendly format.  Additionally, CRMG offers one day seminars and multi-session classes to provide your staff or group more formal education regarding varying market subjects.

  • Futures Brokerage:

The beauty of any market is that it has different value to every person that uses it.  Regardless of what inspires someone to pursue a market, all participants must gain access to that market.  Commodity Risk Management Group (CRMG) extends that access to individuals, businesses, and large commercial operations.  Supported by the strong reputation of Straits Financial,  CRMG provides Futures, Options, and Spot Market Trading with the friendliness and agility of a growing company and service that is second to none.

  • Managed Futures:

Commodity Risk Management Group constantly seeks to help our clients identify and capitalize on opportunities (wherever those might be) while minimizing the risks associated with that opportunity.  In recent years, our clients success has led to an interest in diversifying their asset/investment portfolio.  While commodities represent an emerging asset class for investors worldwide, the risks of speculative positions taken in futures and options is often amplified for those individuals lacking the experience, understanding, or time to manage their positions.  Our Managed Futures offering takes advantage of Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) with strong track records and proven money management discipline to offer investors a wonderful diversification tool that provides liquidity, flexibility, and the futures market advantage of leverage. Learn more.
