The success of your investment in the hands of those who thoroughly know the business of agricultural commodities.
Created over 10 years ago, Archer Consulting is a company which unites the knowledge about one of the oldest subjects known to mankind – the trading of agriculture products – with the modern current tools in the global markets in risk management.
Specialized in the risk management of agricultural commodities and providing advice on futures and options, Archer Consulting offers an unique format of action, focused in the development of the management and planning of risks related to the long term international commercialization and trading in the agricultural business.
Risk Manager in the agricultural commodities, Arnaldo Luiz Correa is the director at Archer Consulting. Graduated in business with a MBA in Management from the Fundacao Getulio Vargas – FGV – and member of the PRMIA – Professional Risk Managers International Association.
Arnaldo has worked for almost 30 years in the agricultural commodities market, in the commercial and risk management areas, in companies such as Cargill, Esteve Cofee, Copersucar, Macquarie Bank and Coimex Trading. He has worked in the USA, UK, Germany and Switzerland, dealing with hedging, options and derivatives. He was also a director in the agricultural area at the BM&F Bovespa.
In conjunction with the journalist Carlos Raices, Arnaldo has written the book “Derivativos Agricolas” published by the Globo Editora.
The name Archer was chosen to translate the objective of the projects, services, consulting and strategic plans offered by the company to its customers .
In our work, we always try assertiveness. We deal directly with the futures options and derivatives markets which have as a main objective to “hit the target” to perform our services with full efficiency. Hit the target and be assertive is Archer’s is also our mission.
In an objective and teaching way, the book “Derivativos Agricolas” brings information about the make-up and operations in the agricultural commodities markets, taking advantage of the wave of advances the country of Brazil has experienced in this area, specially with the commodities of soybeans, sugar, coffee and cotton, as the trading with futures and options began to gain depth in that country.
The initial idea of the work was to be primarily a source of knowledge, giving a competitive advantage to the reader with the product that he/she would eventually be negotiating. However, the many transformations in the Brazilian agricultural economy and financial markets, made those involved with the production and commercialization of agricultural commodities to use the book as a tool to help them with their decisions, a fact which made “Derivativos Agricolas” to be a lot more than a business literature piece, becoming an important material for one to work in and gain knowledge of the market.
“Derivativos Agricolas” has reached the mark of over six thousand copies sold – an expressive number – considering it is a specialty reading material. With the evolution of the business of futures and options in Brazil, that empty space of related literature begins to be occupied by this publication, which utilizes a lot more than theoretical knowledge, taking advantage of the extensive experience of those who have been working in the market for a long time.
