Metals Price Management

Identifying net price exposure can be complicated, often involving multiple software programs, employees, and contract structures. Accounting for inventory and sales, matching them, and organizing them across time can provide transparency on aggregate commodity-based risk exposure. CIH empowers clients to build a comprehensive and transparent view of overall risk, increasing their ability to identify and mitigate potential changes that would directly impact their bottom-line.

Robust Technical Resources

Our clients have secure access to a customized risk management website that integrates market data and extensive charting capabilities alongside a unique and detailed model of their operation. Through this versatile website, companies can stress test their position for capital requirements, analyze market structure and dynamics- from open interest to implied volatility skews, and evaluate new strategies before executing them on the exchange. CIH’s tech suite gives clients the ability to navigate their positions with eyes wide open.


Personalized Guidance on Market Strategy

CIH provides a structured, process driven methodology to help clients filter through the noise, digest what’s pertinent, and evaluate appropriate strategies. A personalized relationship with a CIH consultant provides consistent guidance designed to provide a focused and disciplined approach based on your objectives. We provide structure and education to implement a hedging plan that helps clients achieve their goals in managing profitability in the long term.


Public Educational Seminars

Targeted by industry, each CIH seminar aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of how to leverage the full range of available contracting alternatives to manage commodity price risk and gain a greater degree of control over profit margins. Focused on Copper and Steel markets, our Metals Seminars will include an introduction to risk management, options, and simulations that allow attendees to manage market risk of a hypothetical operation. These simulations provide attendees a risk-free opportunity to see the implications of their own decisions. We are also registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and offer CPE credits with all of our seminars.

Private Educational Programs

CIH also provides private educational programs that allow for real examples within your business to be discussed and contemplated with your group. Please contact us if you would like to schedule a program tailored to your group’s needs and level of knowledge. Private seminars can be held in our Chicago training facility or a location of your choosing. As with our public seminars, We are registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy and offer CPE credits with all of our classes.
