Corporate Profile

CIH provides clients with the critical information, tools and skills needed to make better marketing decisions. Through a unique combination of education, regular consultation and technology tools, we provide comprehensive risk management services to producers, importers/exporters, elevators, traders and end users in various agriculture industries, including hog, beef, dairy, poultry/feed, ethanol and crop. We serve hundreds of clients throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe and South East Asia. CIH is widely recognized as a leader in margin and risk management in the agricultural commodity markets.

CIH was co-founded in 1999 by current CEO, Perry Iverson, and Gordon Malarkey. Over their combined 25 years in the commodities industry, the company‚Äôs co-founders grew increasingly frustrated by the subjective, commission-driven trading that limited agriculture producers’ ability to succeed. Most producers and buyers were not managing margins or price risk and missing valuable opportunities to protect favorable margins or prices. Perry and Gordon came to believe that the agricultural community needed a new kind of company, one that armed producers and buyers with a systematic, objective and education-based process for managing risk.

Our education-focused business model and team approach to client support has led to long tenure among both clients and employees, and helped fuel the company’s growth.
