More than 95% of PRI clients take advantage of the Managed Portfolio service. This full service option includes the following:
Client Assessment – Specific needs are assessed and evaluated on the basis of risk tolerance, fiscal year requirements, budgeting, cash flow constraints, goals and desired time frame for hedging activities.
Customized Procurement Strategy – Using the Client Assessment as a guide, a hedging strategy is developed. It includes a procurement schedule, target limits, and storage management plans (for natural gas where available).
Prepare and Issue Custom RFPs – Client-specific proposals, based on the criteria established for the custom strategy, are requested from suppliers.
Evaluate proposals – Apples-to-apples price comparisons considering all the components:
– Compare contract clauses, as even a small change – to a supplier’s risk assessment, for example – can affect price
– Compare hedging flexibility and determine which supplier is the best match for the specific needs of the client
– Customized contract terms – for example, if the sale of a facility is anticipated, a clause allowing change of ownership should be included
Award contracts to winning bidder, taking into consideration the items above
Client Grouping – The client is added to analogous profile groups for daily price monitoring
Market Data – PRI obtains both natural gas and electricity data on a daily basis, as well as some client-specific pricing for larger portfolios
Market Analysis – On a daily basis, trading team analysts review markets and determine whether action is warranted on behalf of client portfolios and/or groups
