THE WOODLANDS, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AEGIS Hedging Solutions (“AEGIS” or “the Company”), a leading provider of technology and expertise for commodity and environmental markets, has been named the 2023 Hedging Advisory Firm of the Year by Energy Risk USA for the seventh consecutive year. The Energy Risk Awards celebrate excellence and innovation in risk management across the commodities complex and recognize the firms that are driving the energy and broader commodity markets forward.
In the midst of continued volatility for nearly every commodity market, AEGIS provides technology, expertise, and real-time insights that are critical for companies looking to protect their profits.
“The Energy Risk judges were extremely impressed with AEGIS’ dedication to its customers during these unprecedented times and the investments that the company continues to make in its technology stack,” said Stella Farrington, Head of Content at Energy Risk USA.
“Our customers understand the importance of managing commodity price volatility through deep market insights and advanced technology,” said Bryan Sansbury, CEO of AEGIS. “I want to thank our customers for their continued partnership, Energy Risk Magazine for tracking our progress, and our colleagues for continuing to hustle and do things others won’t.”
This award reflects AEGIS’ remarkable growth over the past 12 months. AEGIS has greatly extended its capabilities this year through the launch of a proprietary hedge portfolio modeling capability based on patents owned by the firm – enabling customers to enter financial goals, assess the likelihood of achieving them based on simulating thousands of market scenarios, and receive multiple hedging recommendations to increase the certainty of them. In addition, AEGIS launched fully-integrated online trade approvals and a series of APIs that allow customers to easily access data resident in the AEGIS software platform.
AEGIS also introduced the industry’s first hedging marketplace for real-time price discovery and registered the industry’s first swap execution facility (SEF) with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) – complete with surveillance routines and regulatory reporting.
Most recently, AEGIS acquired the U.S. based and Canadian-based financial hedging advisory contracts from ARM Energy. Following this transaction, AEGIS now works with nearly 500 companies that are exposed to volatility in the energy, refined products, metals and agricultural markets.
AEGIS simplifies commodity and environmental markets for companies serious about managing their commodity exposures and/or emission footprints. AEGIS has unmatched technology and expertise to deliver market insights, tailored hedge strategies, efficient trade execution, and full-cycle management of hedge positions – all designed for regulatory compliance. Building on its core energy hedging capabilities, AEGIS has recently completed five acquisitions to extend its expertise in environmental and metals markets, increase its analytics capabilities and fully integrate a SaaS E/CTRM software platform. AEGIS was recently named the industry leader in hedging solutions for an unprecedented seventh consecutive year. AEGIS is headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas.
