WattOptions is an independent energy advisor that focuses on long-term portfolio strategy. Via extensive research and discussion with global industry professionals we differentiate the cycles from the lasting trends that emerge from new technology and policy. Our wide industry awareness allows us to help clients make better investment, divestment, and hedging decisions. As a compass to keep us moving in the right direction, we’ve assigned ourselves two in-house energy challenges:
Challenge 1: From a set of 50 diverse listed energy majors, construct a long/short portfolio that is best adapted to current energy trends to deliver solid earnings. i.e. replicate a super energy major that is flexible and outperforms its component parts. This E50 Portfolio will be a unique telescope for viewing the energy commodity world from the major players’ perspectives.
Challenge 2: The world is digitizing. More and more of all useful work will be done in the clouds, which are rooted in power-hungry data centers. As everything turns into software and stored data, BitWatt Research takes a long view and proposes ways that today’s utility players can enter tomorrow’s value chain.
Managing Director’s Background
I worked for 10 years for a hedge fund and large utilities on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. My specialty is optimizing energy portfolios, modelling complex and uncertain systems for decision-makers, analyzing market supply & demand fundamentals, automating trading decisions, and pricing structured option products. In university I studied chemistry, economics, and mathematical finance.
