Risk Advisory Services

With a multidisciplinary team of energy and finance experts, NERA has been a pioneer in helping clients managing risk and pricing in the face of competition. We have used and developed sophisticated financial techniques to value high-risk investments or reduce risk, including by applying option pricing theory. We have used these techniques to develop investment strategies in energy and other industries that recognize the value of flexibility in the face of uncertainty about future costs. We have also worked with the issue of pricing and hedging risks related to natural disasters.

With extensive experience in risk analysis and risk management techniques, NERA experts are well versed in modeling, analyzing, and communicating the effects of combined risks to energy and other companies. We typically aggregate these risks across multiple risk factors and business units, taking into account correlations and diversification effects, to measure their combined effect on performance measures such as earnings-at-risk or cash-flow-at-risk. We can also assist clients in measuring individual risk exposures on a consistent basis. Once risk has been properly assessed and measured, our experts assist our clients in institutionalizing these methods as well as assist in bringing other best practice approaches to their daily operations.
