Your NAB Business Banker working with NAB Commodity Strategic Dealers can help in designing a solution to match/manage the commodity price risk of your business.

Commodity solutions used by Business market clients can be grouped into two categories - swaps and options.

Commodity swaps

Swaps are an agreement between you and us that fixes the price of an agreed quantity of the relevant commodity (fixed swap price) on a future date (maturity date).

Commodity options

Options allow you to achieve an agreed maximum – or an agreed minimum – price for a notional quantity of a commodity on the maturity date.
