The primary focus for each of our customers has always been commodity risk management. Gone are the days when the basic task of putting on, or removing, a hedge was a swift decision. The marketplace offers myriads of products, complex options and “basis” variations. R.W. Dow sticks to the “keep it simple” adage. Timing is the key.
Our guidance in this process is driven by our years of brokerage service for commercial and institutional futures participants in minimizing price risk. We are also experienced in weather hedging for energy risk holders of temperature uncertainty, as well as for investors who approach weather derivatives as a non-correlated asset class, suitable for portfolio diversification.
