Protection Plus WA 2015/16

The ProtectionPlus Pool is a wheat pool that secures a growers bottom line first, then uses low risk option strategies to gain benefit from price rallies.

It offers growers increased confidence, early in the season of a minimum return for their wheat, by targeting a protection price in the event of a market downturn. The advantage is that the ProtectionPlus Pool is designed to participate in positive market movements, with upside potential.

The ProtectionPlus Pool is jointly managed by the dedicated teams at CBH Group and Plum Grove; grain trading and marketing professionals who analyse the wheat every day.

CBH markets and sells the physical wheat, providing growers security of payment through CBH Grain Pty Ltd.
