Powerful Data Solutions for Financial Sector
Financial trading and investment companies provide needed liquidity and risk capital to agricultural futures and derivatives markets, which are essential to all companies in the agricultural value chain. Hedge funds, asset managers, investment banks, and large investors use these markets to manage risk and express views on future price movements.
As for all major industries, capital is the grease that keeps the agricultural economy moving. Farmers and agribusiness rely on banks to extend credit. And they depend on insurance companies to provide a safety net against adverse circumstances. Financial service companies, for their part, need to be alert to the health of the farm economy to assess credit worthiness and set policy premiums. Understanding regional finance and credit conditions allows financial institutions to properly price capital and insurance.
