HedgeStar to become Americas distributor & implementation agent of KYOS Risk Management Software

June 30, 2021 - MINNEAPOLIS, MN

HedgeStar announces a partnership with KYOS Risk Management Software in which HedgeStar becomes an official distributor and implementation agent of KYOS Commodity Portfolio and Risk Management (PRM) software in North America and South America.

The KYOS PRM system has been developed to enhance risk management for clients throughout the retail, food and beverage, agriculture, metals and energy industries. Through the system, risk management positions can be catalogued, analyzed, and reported into useful and concise risk metrics. With its user-friendly interface, the system can consolidate information including physical contracts, financial contracts, volume forecasts and market prices.

KYOS and HedgeStar both bring a unique value proposition, that together open the door for new opportunities. “We are very pleased to have found in HedgeStar a strategic partner with an established presence and customer base in North America,” says Richard Cornielje, Director Corporate Clients of KYOS CCA. “We believe our software makes commodity risk management much more manageable, not only for procurement, but also for the treasury and finance departments.”

“We were seeking a technology partner with a proven product and an appetite for rapid growth. KYOS addressed both criteria. Their multi-asset risk analytics platform is best-in-class and their company culture aligns seamlessly with HedgeStar’s – creative, customer driven and massively entrepreneurial. I am very excited to see what the future holds with KYOS and HedgeStar working side-by-side,” says Craig Haymaker, Chief Operating Officer at HedgeStar.
