Built on the latest technology, Quantifi’s Commodities Counterparty Risk Management solution is a powerful integrated solution for managing credit and counterparty risk. The solution was developed in collaboration with Bunge, a leading agribusiness and food company that buys, sells, stores and transports oilseeds and grains to customers worldwide.

“We are delighted to have been recognised by Chartis for our depth of functionality as a commodity trading risk management system,” comments Rohan Douglas, CEO, Quantifi. “In recent years, extended regulatory measures and global economic volatility have triggered huge swings in commodity prices. This has influenced firms to re-examine conventional ways of doing business and adopt a more holistic approach to managing physical, financial and sustainability risk to reduce losses and gain competitive advantage. Sophisticated firms require a solution that incorporates advanced measuring, modelling and analytics. Given our success working with Bunge, a leading agribusiness, we are seeing considerable demand for our Commodities Counterparty Risk Management solution.” continues Rohan.
