We Understand Your Market
Metals producers and traders, as well as consumers (like car manufacturers and electric battery producers) who use metals in manufacturing processes all have complex risks to consider. Metals markets are typically characterised into two categories: precious metals (such as gold) and base metals (such as copper, lead, nickel, zinc, tin and aluminium), with each category having unique supply/demand characteristics that drive forward and spot prices.
Limited price liquidity, quality and location spreads, complex contract terms and warehousing costs create challenges in capturing and assessing metal portfolio risks. Metals market players need to adhere to sound risk management principles to ensure that their cashflows are stable while optimising their profitability.
These players require tools that can capture both the financial and physical movements across all facets of mining, storage and sale. Lacima understands the specific requirements of companies exposed to mining and metals risks and works with them to ensure they can optimise their portfolio while maximising profits.
