CHS Hedging announced that its Russell Consulting Group subsidiary has been fully integrated into CHS Hedging LLC, and all services have been renamed AgSurion Risk Consulting. The new name aligns with the scheduled business transition agreement between Russell Consulting Group founder and principal Maurice "Moe" Russell of Panora, Iowa, and CHS Hedging of Inver Grove Heights, Minn.
"While our farm marketing and financial consulting service has a new name, you can rest assured that the commitment to service, integrity and our unique business model remains the same," CHS Hedging president Nelson Neale said.
Nelson said the name AgSurion Risk Consulting was chosen to reflect the reassurance producer and commercial customers gain when they move forward confidently with a sure plan of action – one that's built through strong teamwork and a focus on the future.
CHS Hedging predecessor company Country Hedging Inc. acquired partial ownership of Russell Consulting in 2007, and CHS Hedging assumed full ownership in 2018.
CHS Hedging is the commodity brokerage subsidiary of CHS Inc., the nation's leading cooperative and a Fortune 100 company dedicated to helping producers and cooperatives grow their businesses. CHS Hedging is headquartered in Inver Grove Heights, with offices in Kansas City, Mo., and branch locations in nine other states, often in partnership with local cooperatives.
