Aligne For Energy Physical Traders and Marketers
In today’s highly volatile energy markets, trader/marketers serve customers seeking better access to sources or information, more reliability in supply or more effective asset management. You manage an asset-oriented business that requires you to be as deeply involved in the physical markets that you participate in as your customers. With customers across differing geographies, commodities and industry segments, you must actively monitor markets while focusing on maximizing real and perceived values for them, and minimizing and controlling your own costs.
You face all of the challenges of financial traders with the added risks associated with managing physical assets for your customers and yourself. Market rules, state and country regulations focused on minimizing risk have added levels of reporting and auditability that increase the challenge of compliance and control. SunGard’s Aligne provides the transaction backbone, reporting and decision support tools to help trader/marketers meet these challenges.
