1. Marketing & Logistics

Jasmine Global Network, source commodities from third-parties. They also take up geographic, product and time arbitrage opportunities allowed by our scale and range of capabilities. Jasmine Global Network offers value-added services, including financing, processing, storage and logistics that can combine with our scale, reputation and market knowledge to make us preferred partners for many.

Our traders source a range of physical commodities, both from third-party suppliers and their own production. Their activities are connected to our value-added services such as freight, insurance, financing and storage.

Our customer base is highly diversified, with a high proportion of long-term commercial relationships. Our ability to arrange for short- and long-term financing for both customers and suppliers provides us with long-term demand for, and supply of, physical commodities.

We focus on maximizing fee-like returns for dealing in third-party produce, taking into account our extensive global third-party supply base, our logistics, risk management and working capital financing capabilities, extensive market insight, business optionality, extensive customer base, strong market position and penetration in most commodities, as well as economies of scale.

Logistics

Our logistics team operates seamlessly with our trading desks to manage freight exposures and to add safety and efficiency to our physical transactions.
JGN has ready access to logistics assets worldwide, including Freight, Transport, Storage and Blending Facilities. These give us the capability to respond effectively to market trends and create added flexibility for realizing arbitrage opportunities.

Arbitrage
Many of our markets are fragmented or periodically volatile. As a result, price discrepancies often occur between the prices at which commodities can be bought or sold in different geographic locations or time periods. Other factors include freight and product quality.

These pricing discrepancies can offer us arbitrage opportunities based on our ability to source, transport, blend, store or otherwise process the relevant commodities. While these strategies vary from commodity to commodity, the main opportunities can be generally described as:

We mitigate any credit (including performance) risk in relation to suppliers and customers through systematically applying measures such as credit insurance, letters of credit, security arrangements, or bank and corporate guarantees.
We also leverage our network, which have direct access to, and keep close relationships with, our customers and suppliers.

Our marketing teams manage market exposure to acceptably low levels by reducing price risks arising from timing differences between buying and selling commodities. We have comprehensive risk management systems and procedures in place to monitor these activities.

Logistics, transport and storage
Physical commodity sourcing and marketing requires the highest standards in the handling and shipment of goods from supplier to customer, often including storage activities.

We offer a broad range of competitively priced value-added services that includes financing, processing, storage and logistics. Combined with our scale, reputation and market knowledge, this means we often become a preferred purchaser or supplier; it strengthens long-terms relationships with both customers and suppliers.

Our ability to effectively manage the risk inherent in commodities trading is fundamental to JGN’s continued development and stability.
