The Company is engaged in derivatives trading, and its risk management scope and risk management measures to be adopted are as follows:
- Credit risk management: The object of the transaction is limited to financial institutions and futures brokers with a good reputation and the ability to provide professional information.

The financial institutions entrusted with transactions must have sufficient equipment, information, and trading capabilities, and can conduct transactions in any market.

- Risk measurement, supervision, and control personnel shall belong to different units from the above-mentioned personnel and shall report to the board of directors or to senior executives who are not responsible for transactions or position decision-making.
- Legal Risk Management:
- Any contract documents signed with financial institutions should use international standard documents as much as possible to avoid legal risks.
- Non-standardized documents signed with financial institutions should be inspected by professionals from foreign exchange and legal or legal counsel before they can be formally signed.
- Commodity risk management:
Traders should have complete and correct professional knowledge about the derivative products to be traded and require financial institutions to fully disclose product risks to avoid losses caused by the misuse of derivative products.
