QCS’ pricing team is the best in Queensland, with a proven track record in sugar and foreign currency and more than 20 years’ experience in trading and risk management in sugar marketing and banking.
Our pricing expertise is underpinned by a clearly articulated and world-class price risk management strategy that delivers the highest achievable pool returns, complemented by a low risk profile. Our strategy has been approved by the Boards of QCS and MSL, and our risk management is benchmarked against industry best practice.
Our risk management strategy for QCS-managed pricing utilises a range of tools, including:
- active trading
- ‘real-time’ trading (we trade when the world sugar markets are open, which means we see emerging trends and issues immediately)
- foundation and structural hedges
- price risk protection matched to the pricing environment.
This strategy is aimed at reducing the variability of pool outcomes.
