About Us

Powerline is an independent consulting and execution resource for commercial commodity market hedging, price risk management, and alternative investing.


Leveraging more than half a century of collective experience in commodity price risk management and marketing, the Powerline team tailors programs to meet the specific needs of producers, wholesalers and consumer end-user clients across a broad spectrum of physical hedging and capital management roles.

Our responsibility to our clients is to take the groups collective experience in managing commodity price risk & market volatility, and turn that into simple, sound, and practical programs that help enhance bottom line performance.

Our approach is simple: we focus only on our clients. Powerline is by design, an independent platform of advice, consulting and execution for the benefit of our clients – and only our clients. We are not tied to a large bank, bound by an institutional mandate, or subject to the whims of a far away corporate ownership when it comes to how best to manage our client’s risk and capital. Our actions are 100% reflective of the unique challenges each of our customers face.

Our teams bring specific focus to the Grain/Livestock and Energy/Fuel sectors, using a range of products – including exchanged based futures & option as well as OTC and derivative instruments — to protect and enhance our clients’ bottom lines.

In addition, Powerline also offers alternative investing using Managed Futures (investment programs centered on commodities rather than traditional stocks, bonds, etc.). These products are designed to provide clients with portfolio diversification opportunities, along with the potential for attractive investment returns.

With an emphasis on personal relationships and fiduciary trust, each of Powerline’s principals has over 25 years of real world commodity hedging/trading/marketing experience that is put to work each day for the firms clients.
