Editorial Review - Book Description:
N/AEnergy markets are more perilous than ever before. Deregulation has forced a whole new world of trading and risk management jargon onto the power and energy marketer. How does the manager master this complex process, with its myriad experts, personalities, and systems? John Wengler identifies these issues, discusses and analyzes them, and in checklist fashion prioritizes for managers what they must do to succeed despite risks as diverse as price, trader, and credit. Written in plain English, the text is directed at upper management at all electric utilities, natural gas firms, oil companies, and industrial end-users served by the energy complex.

Very disappointing, September 21, 2002 By A Customer This review is from: Managing Energy Risk: A Nontechnical Guide to Markets and Trading (Hardcover) This text offers absolutely nothing. It is either far too simplistic or misses chunks of valuable detail. There are far better introductions to the energy markets (e.g. Stephen Errera's Trading Energy Futures & Options or Peter Fusaro's Energy Risk Management) - buy one of these instead!

Excellent "big picture" of energy risk management, December 26, 2001 By A Customer This review is from: Managing Energy Risk: A Nontechnical Guide to Markets and Trading (Hardcover) Managing Energy Risk: A Nontechnical Guide to Markets and Trading serves as a wonderful overview of the critical issues surrounding risk management operations. Although it does not replace an in-depth discussion of financial instruments found in a traditional finance textbook, the author does not intend it to do so. Instead, the book provides an introduction to financial instruments but offers a much broader perspective of risk management. It covers topics such as the trend towards market pricing in the electric power markets, the importance of having clear risk management policies and procedures, and the overall deal process. It is an excellent read for anyone interested in having a "big picture" understanding of risk management operations.
