Grain Origination Seminar & Cubs Game!

Event includes an evening cocktail reception in the historic Chicago Board of Trade building.

After the seminar we will head over to Wrigley Field for Cubs vs. Brewers at 1:20 on 8/15.

Topics Covered

  • Origination Solutions for Today’s Competitive Markets
    Tools that can help your growers make better marketing decisions and gain transparency about their forward contracting.

  • Optionality in Cash Contracts
    Structuring options in cash contracts to achieve varying degrees of flexibility for growers to participate in higher prices; evaluating different position structures in terms of strength and suitability for particular market conditions.

  • Case Studies and Group Exercise
    A comparison of outcomes from three sample structures and three market paths illustrates why certain contracting alternatives are more effective than others in different situations. A group exercise to select and utilize contracts under a historical marketing scenario helps reinforce these concepts.

  • The Advantage of Proactive Contract Management
    Potential strategy adjustments growers can make as market conditions change to add value for both grower and originator over the contracting life cycle.
