In the late nineties the two oldest trading houses of the Amsterdam agricultural futures, G. de Vries and W.F. Westermann Futures, merged. As De Vries & Westermann B.V. we operate as an intermediary in the agricultural futures market in Leipzig (EEX), Paris (EEX), London (ICE) and Chicago (CME).
The roots of our company is lying in the "Golden Age". Than the company used to trade in coffee, cocoa, copra and various spices. From the start of the agricultural futures market in Amsterdam, the focus lies on futures trading in potatoes, pork and grains. We also offer the opportunity to trade virtually all global soft commodities. We are also active in the financial markets. We can offer all orders for the financial markets run by BinckBank.
Our vision is to bring our marketed products as close as possible to the producer, trade, industry and investors. With our experience and specialist knowledge we have become a leading player in the futures in potatoes, pork, wheat and corn.
In our team there is a no-nonsense culture and you can expect from us current market information and, if needed, a patient explanation of what you want to know about our products. We can advise and inform the ways to hedge your price risk using forward contracts.
