The success of any risk management program is highly dependent on the quantification of the actual risk that needs to be managed. Simply put, one cannot manage what they cannot measure. The first step of any risk management is to qualify your existing position. Is there a physical position and how big? When does it market? Evaluating a physical position and its relative economic value to the futures will help determine what a successful risk management program includes. Aggregating the physical positions with purchase orders, contracts, futures, and options are imperative in order for a manager to truly know their risk or exposure. This is no easy task, but only then, can you expect to manage what you have measured.
