Margin Management For Lenders – Chicago

This program is designed to help credit analysts, loan officers and bank managers understand the risk management strategies of their agricultural producer clients.

Day 1 Topics Covered

  • Margin Management Fundamentals
  • An introduction to modeling forward profitability in the agriculture industry. We will explore how producers can use the full range of contracting alternatives in both the cash and futures markets to secure favorable margins.

  • Cash Market vs. Futures Market
  • The risks and benefits of physical (spot) market contracts compared to exchange-traded contracts, and how the two types can complement each other.

  • Margin Requirements and Projections
  • Understanding performance bond requirements and their potential impacts on cash flow and credit lines.

  • Hedging Relationships and Risks
  • The requirements of the various parties involved in the hedging process, including futures commission merchant (FCM) clearing and account control agreements, trade execution and account funding.

  • Position Reconciliation
  • Matching open and closed position P&L to physical purchases and sales, and determining net exposure.

Day 2 Topics Covered

  • Core Strategies
  • Basic exchange-traded structures that complement existing physical contracts to manage the risk of both higher and lower prices.

  • Managing Strategies Over Time
  • Position adjustments that can help producers address risk and margin exposure, and take advantage of opportunities as prices change.

  • Applying Concepts Learned
  • An interactive price management simulation to reinforce and test new skills. Participants will make several price management decisions over a marketing period and evaluate the resulting effect on net margins.
