Risk is an inherent part of our business. Understanding it and managing it is crucial to our success. The company has adopted tight internal control systems in order to ensure that risk is significantly minimized or eliminated. An expert derivatives desk, along with sound relationships with brokers, allows us to hedge the underlying market price risk. We have established uniform contract terms which are applied globally in order to mitigate the commercial risk of transactions. When applicable, comprehensive insurance solutions are put into place. An exemplary track record has afforded us our solid reputation with banks and financial institutions. Our extensive lines of credit, structuring and project finance capabilities, use of advanced financial instruments and insurance facilities, allow us to provide the ideal solution for every one of our clients in this challenging financial climate.
