Price Risk Management

Price certainty is crucial in an uncertain environment

Precious metals markets are volatile and difficult to predict. Strong price fluctuations are a challenge for every company where precious metals are part of the value chain: they influence margin, capital commitment and competitiveness - in short, your business success!

The professional handling of volatility is therefore crucial. Creating the right conditions for this requires experience, know-how and time. That's why it pays to work with experts.

There are ways of using a variety of instruments to improve your position and cushion undesirable market effects with planning certainty.

Guaranteed price stability and planning security

We offer you a price hedging model tailored to your specific needs, for each precious metal. Whether for gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, ruthenium, or iridium – our experts will identify the right hedging solution for your business across various transaction types (e.g., cash transaction, swap, or limit order). When you order products containing precious metals from Heraeus, the production costs can be completely fixed along with the product units. We can offer you full flexibility when you order your precious metal quantities within a defined period of time. Using these instruments, which have won accolades from our customers, we develop a fixed calculation basis for your products. This is particularly important when your customers also want stable and reliable prices.

We help you gain greater planning security while minimizing your price risks. We have a price hedging model that is right for you. Please contact us!
