Additionally, it has been the experience of FCStone that utilities need to eloquently present their newly created or revised risk management programs to regulatory bodies for approval or review. FCStone has presented programs on behalf of investor-owned utility clients to commissions in 12 states, and on behalf of municipal utility clients, FCStone has presented to city officials representing public utilities located in 7 states.
