BDT Africa offers existing Bester Feed and Grain clients with a derivative trading service in addition to its existing suite of trading services.
Commodity markets have become volatile in recent years in response to a huge growth in demand, extreme weather patterns, volatile currency markets and growing demand for renewable energy sources. Participants in the commodity markets are inextricably exposed to price uncertainty. This uncertainty is a management challenge that can be addressed with the use of hedging instruments.
BDT Africa aims to offer participants in these markets with price hedging solutions that suit each client’s unique situation. Clients will now be able to register a derivative trading account through BDT and be able to call on experienced derivative traders for assistance in constructing sensible and effective hedging strategies.
