“Dynamic Supplies has been working with the Rochford Group, led by Tom and Derek for over 4 years. Their advice on both the AUD and NZD consistently demonstrates a strong understanding of the underlying market drivers and also how these specifically apply to our business. Their research and advice consistently provide us with the tools to both mitigate risk and take advantage of opportunities as they arise. They have also provided invaluable advice with regard to the structure of the appropriate hedging solutions allowing us to achieve margin protection whilst still participating in favourable market moves.  I would not hesitate to recommend Tom and the Rochford Group for good independent advice.
