Koch Supply & Trading's energy derivatives and metals groups tailor products to help counterparties manage price and cost volatility, creating a more fungible base commodity product and financial liquidity in pricing indices.
This is accomplished through swaps, used for locking in purchase or sale prices, and other customized derivatives designed to manage exposure to price risk.
