Risk Management
& Hedging Strategies

Beond offers the full range of hedging strategies, and we will only recommend the most suitable solution for a clients’ specific risk management needs.

We tend to avoid speculative hedges, as we believe the market provides a reasonable view of future prices. However, given the right circumstances, we accept that speculative decisions can pay off. Ultimately, it is your own costs that you are speculating with.

Our hedging strategies include:

  • fixed price contracts
  • dynamic forward purchasing
  • layering
  • product diversification
  • spot price purchasing
  • bespoke hedging

Energy Supply Contract
Administration & Support

Purchasing an energy contract is only half of the story. It is then important to ensure the contract goes live on time, that the account is set up correctly with the supplier, and that you are billed correctly thereafter. Additionally, you may experience metering issues, billing errors or the need to add/remove meters from your portfolio. Furthermore, legislation has imposed additional burden on non-domestic users in the pursuit of meeting global and national carbon reduction targets.

Beond is highly experienced in meeting these needs and offers a variety of services that can be tailored to our clients’ specific requirements.

  • Portfolio Management – when you take on a new property, we will track progress from your instruction through to the start of the energy contracts.  We manage portfolios for businesses and property managers with a few or thousands of meters
  • Bill validation – our software can validate any bill, including complex pass-through and flex bills, metering and general query support
  • Help desk – we give our clients with large property portfolios a help desk number and we will resolve any energy issues at any site
