NEW YORK — August 11, 2020 — Wayne Penello, President and founder of Risked Revenue Energy Associates (R^2), and R^2 Managing Director Andrew Furman, today announced the publication of Risk Is an Asset: Turning Commodity Price Uncertainty into a Strategic Advantage. The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.
Each investment carries inherent risk. To offset potential losses, investors often employ a strategy known as hedging–counterbalancing that initial purchase with a separate investment that serves as an insurance policy. While this is an effective way to prevent large-scale loss, this safety net can be an impediment to higher portfolio growth. In their new book, Wayne Penello and Andrew Furman outline their unique approach to hedging, designed to maximize investment yield and transform corporate price risk into a strategic advantage.
The pair’s core philosophy is Process Risk Management (PRM). PRM is an objective, market-based volatility observation used to provide businesses with estimates of budgetary risk, measured as a cost for consumers and revenues for producers. By measuring risk in budgetary terms, PRM helps firms maintain focus on its own success while avoiding the trap of trying to outguess the market.
Risk Is an Asset was written to help leaders “identify which metrics are important for you, where there are opportunities to take advantage of risk, and chart a financial path forward,” Penello explained.
