At Noah's Rule we fervently believe that sound risk management begins and ends with the integration of market risk strategy with corporate strategy.
Companies exposed to financial and commodity markets need Hedging Policies; they need methods to measure their risk; systems to value risk management products; a strong understanding of hedge accounting issues and the skills to efficiently execute appropriate products at fair market pricing. Noah's Rule has the tools, the templates and team to assist our clients to do all these things.
All these things done to perfection are not sufficient or appropriate if the strategic framework is inadequate. Why? Because none of these things in themselves alter a company's risk profile.
The volatility of financial markets demand that companies should constantly be aware of what is most harmful to long term success and develop strategies to make the worst case less likely.
The Noah's Rule team of treasury and banking trained professionals brings to its clients experience and understanding previously only available inside banks. With broad depth and experience in financial markets, Noah's Rule provides truly independent advice to companies requiring financial market risk management strategy, funding and execution advice.
We work with our clients to truly understand the potential impact of financial and commodity markets on their business. We then develop tailored solutions appropriate to their needs for debt funding and mitigation of market risk; and facilitate the negotiation, documentation and execution with their chosen financial institution.
Our strong commitment to our risk management philosophy is encapsulated by Noah's Rule,
"Predicting rain doesn't count; building arks does".
This commitment to predictability over prediction will result, over time, in clients of Noah's Rule being recognised through all market conditions as prudent exponents of market risk management and that this will be reflected in their long term success.
"Building an ark is not about displaying a lack of corporate confidence. It's simply an acknowledgement that extreme confidence in predicted or desired outcomes is often misplaced and a recognition of the fact that by the time that storm clouds are visible on the horizon,the time for building arks has almost certainly passed."
