This informative webinar is sponsored by RTFG, a provider of innovative risk management solutions for the plastics industry. Participants of the webinar will be introduced to the reasons why hedging plastics could be beneficial to a company’s risk management program. Key strategies for managing cost volatility of plastics through hedging will also be shared. VanPutte, who is a leading expert in the plastics industry, has developed a comprehensive financial resin hedging program for managing price volatility in the polypropylene and polyethylene markets. The program encompasses market tracking, forward pricing curves, feedstock-to polymer correlations and hedging strategies.

“The lack of transparency and the volatility of resin pricing is a top concern for most end users of plastics,” said VanPutte. “By not managing that volatility, by just riding the rollercoaster and buying as you need at the price, at the time, you’ve already decided unconsciously to accept price risk. If you have difficulty managing your sales price and meeting your budget on costs, you need a new tool.”

Companies who currently derive price - risk management benefits from hedging other commodities may benefit from tapping RTFG's insight into the resin and plastics markets.
