Liberty seeks to mitigate all aspects of credit / counterparty, political and price risks in the execution and management of its trading business.
Underpinning our global business model is a thorough understanding of the specific countries in which we operate, as well as a detailed appreciation of all of our suppliers and customers.
As physical traders, we are exposed to all these risks on a daily basis. We have thus, developed a culture of proactive risk management. This is the key approach to all aspects of our business, and all levels of our staff (commercial, operational, trade/finance) emulate this practice.
The Group appreciates that risk management is fundamental to the successful growth of its business. The ability to identify risk and structure credit-enhanced solutions has been a significant factor in the growth of the company's business in our principal markets in recent years. Equally critical has been our ability to manage inventory,trading positions and supply chain parameters, allowing us to fulfil customer requirements without prejudicing our own risk exposure.
We continue to develop risk management processes and solutions with the aim to simultaneously enhance our internal controls as well as creating external innovative opportunities and solutions.
