Managers of asset-heavy portfolios are faced with significant challenges when trying to optimize or provide decision analysis. The challenge has always been to accurately model all potential risk variables without drowning in data. With today’s energy market design, complex generation profiles, price volatility and trading instruments, portfolio managers cannot afford to use old modeling assumptions and still maintain risk standards. Getting it right means incorporating all of the physical & financial components of risk into a robust analytical process. It means forecasting probabilistic outcomes in a way that informs managerial decisions.
Ascend’s software solutions stand ready to guide portfolio managers as the analytic backbone to stream line processes, enhance understanding, and support decisions. Our focus remains the analytic and data infrastructure to support decision analysis from the next hour to the next thirty years. Making better models requires getting the details right to accurately represent the physical and financial dynamics of energy supply. For portfolio managers that require a comprehensive analytical framework, our software models allow energy companies to increase cash flow certainty, improve position analysis, optimize hedge design, and improve price forecasting and asset valuation.
