Commodity trading and price risk management expert
Kim has spent most of his career at international commodity and banking businesses. He was involved in the physical gas transport & power generation business of Engie, then in structuring commodities derivatives transactions at Natixis, then in physical grains & oilseeds at Vivescia and more recently in physical sugar and ethanol at Tereos and Alvean.
Kim’s approach to risk and trading of commodities is to combine a sound understanding of the underlying commodity with adequate communication to stakeholders, leaving the strong IT and statistics skills in the background.
He’s a believer that awareness of the risks leads to a better decision-making process that ultimately increases profitability.
