The Story Behind Spotlock

Spotlock was born out of a real-world challenge faced by one of our founders. Experiencing firsthand the volatility of commodity prices, his construction projects suffered significant losses due to unforeseen fluctuations in steel prices. This event led to the pivotal question: How are companies currently managing commodity risk, and could there be a better way?

Upon exploring the market, it became clear that offering fixed prices to end-clients was rare across many industries, with hedging practices typically reserved for large corporations that could afford specialized in-house teams. Diving deeper, the difficulty and complexity of using financial markets for hedging became apparent. 

The challenge wasn't just knowing one’s exposure; it involved understanding the intricate correlation between procured products and financial derivatives, and accessing and navigating the trading landscape. Moreover, successfully hedging often requires coordination across sales, procurement, finance, and trading desks—a daunting task without good tools.
