Elevator's Edge
A new suite of services designed to help you keep – and win – more business.

A pricing program that allows growers to share in the performance of professional marketing strategies managed by INTL FCStone. Depending on the strategy selected, a hedging plan will be run on behalf of all participants and the gains or losses will result in an effective ‘Merchants Plus Price’ which is used to settle your cash contracts. 

Merchants Plus pricing can be offered to elevators as a swap which allows the elevator to use the Merchants Plus price in their contracts with growers.
