Audits & Benchmarking

Trading risk management is a perpetual work-in-progress that requires diligent oversight, review and updating. Technological innovation and dynamic markets are constantly changing the energy landscape, prompting companies to adapt and evolve. For two decades JBC has advised the world’s leading oil and gas companies on how to optimise their supply, trading and risk management enterprises. We have done this by rigorously auditing existing policies, operations, procedures, strategies and processes and then benchmarking our findings against international standards and best practices. These reviews often highlight deficiencies or gaps within a company’s current portfolio that may impact its overall efficiency and profitability.

Risk Management Advisory

Energy and commodity markets are fraught with risks. The only common denominator of these risks are their elusiveness and unpredictability. Understanding potential exposures and devising ways of minimising risks present formidable challenges to modern trading organisations. JBC offers integrated risk management solutions for global oil and gas markets. Our consultants understand the complex nature of the energy industry and are specialists in market exposures, arbitrage, inventory management, counterparty risk, pricing and energy security. It is our belief that there is no “one size fits all” risk management solution. Instead a company must employ disciplined analysis, evaluation and introspection. A company needs to understand the unique environment it operates in, what risks it faces and how it can best manage these. JBC consultants have hands-on experience in hedging upstream, downstream and customer risk. JBC can also support clients in developing or selecting energy trading and risk management software solutions that meet their specific corporate needs, risk profiles and budgets.
