AcuRisk helps provide answers for the uncertainty in the market, by measurably improving potential profits by 5 to 20%. According to the manufacturer, the program provides accurate and practical results that add to the bottom line immediately. The program's Simulation Engine is a next-generation, multi-commodity VaR model that focuses on Earnings at Risk, not just VaR. It empowers energy risk managers and traders to identify and mitigate risk, and maximize returns from their hedge portfolio of physical assets and financial instruments. Sophisticated graphics and reporting features provide users with a clear view of uncertainty that enables them to identify risk and opportunity in energy markets. It is ideal for wholesale, retail, and vertically integrated enterprises in regulated or competitive markets.

Add-on modules for AcuRisk include AcuMaximizer and AcuFeed. AcuMaximizer selects the portfolio shares of forwards, options, and spot market purchases to optimally balance risks and returns. This provides wholesalers and traders of electricity and natural gas the ability to select hedge instruments to reduce risk and maximize return. AcuFeed is an outsourced solution to the problem of parameter population and reliable market data to operate a risk management system. It is available as an Internet service and simplifies the deployment and use of AcuRisk.
