Corporate Overview

“All of life is the management of risk, not its elimination.”
-Walter Wriston

FCStone Business Philosophy
FCStone believes risk management programs designed with real-world objectives and controls can effectively manage the multiple risks facing the ever-changing energy industry. Utilities and corporations have a unique opportunity to expand profitability for both the shareholder and the customer by better controlling their price risk.

FCStone Background
Risk Management Incorporated, now part of INTL FCStone Financial Inc., opened its doors in 1988, with headquarters located in Chicago, Illinois. Since that time, the evolving deregulation of the energy industry has allowed us to grow and expand our services to meet the changing needs of energy users across many industries. To date, FCStone has facilitated the development and execution of more than 80 risk management programs on behalf of utility and commercial customers including several Fortune 500 corporations. FCStone executes approximately $16 billion (notional value) in energy contracts on behalf of its clients each year.

Regardless of your company's size or experience in hedging price risk, FCStone can help to integrate a risk management program to meet your long-term goals. We apply our 25+ years of experience to guide an organization from the initial introduction on the concept of risk management to the implementation and execution of strategies and trades.
