2021 marks the fifth consecutive year that AEGIS has been recognized by Energy Risk Magazine
The Woodlands, Texas, July 14, 2021 – AEGIS Hedging Solutions (“AEGIS”), a leading Commodity Trading Advisor (“CTA”) and fintech provider for commodity and rate markets, today was recognized as the 2021 Hedging Advisory Firm of the Year at Energy Risk Global. This marks the fifth consecutive year AEGIS has been recognized for this honor. The Energy Risk Awards demonstrate best practice and innovation in risk management throughout the commodities complex and are pushing boundaries to shape the energy and commodity markets.
The past 18 months have presented significant uncertainty for companies with exposure to commodity prices – from oil and gas to steel and aluminum. AEGIS’ clients have been able to navigate incredible market activity through access to market analytics, technology, and tailored hedge strategies.
AEGIS works with over 300 clients to research potential price movements in commodity and rate markets, develop cash flow protection strategies, and manage all hedge positions through settlement. Earlier this year, AEGIS established a subsidiary, AEGIS SEF, LLC (“AEGIS SEF”), to facilitate the negotiation and execution of bilateral derivative contracts between commercial end-users and their financial counterparties.
“The Energy Risk judges were extremely impressed with AEGIS’ ability to ramp up its services to clients during these unprecedented times and to make significant investments in its technology stack,” said Stella Farrington, Head of Content, Energy Risk.
AEGIS’ continued investment in technology has enabled clients to make fast, decisive hedging decisions as markets move. As oil and gas markets weakened over the last year, producers were able to quickly review their hedge books from a single screen, model scenarios, and move quickly to execution. Likewise, as metals markets have moved consistently higher, manufacturers have been able to mitigate the impact on input costs.
“We are honored to be recognized by Energy Risk Magazine for our progress and results during a year where the value of hedging commercial price risk has never been more clear,” said Bryan Sansbury, CEO, AEGIS. “I want to thank our customers who have trusted us to manage market volatility and our colleagues who continue to make things happen. Our commitment is unwavering - we will continue to invest heavily in technology, new sectors, and our colleagues to ensure we continue to advance the industry.”
