CHARLESTON, SC--(Marketwired - June 01, 2017) - weatherXchange®, the platform which helps companies access index-based weather risk protection and which provides post-trade valuation and settlement services, is pleased to announce its cooperation with Twin Feathers Consulting, a specialist in the North American propane market. Twin Feathers will be the first North American focused Specialist Broker-Advisor listed on the weatherXchange Platform.
David Whitehead, Co-CEO said, "Twin Feathers has been advising its clients concerning the benefits of weather risk management for some time so we are delighted that they will now be using the weatherXchange Platform to support its activities in advising and helping its clients hedge their weather risk exposure. Our goal is simple: to provide access to weather data, structuring tools and to facilitate easy price comparison. This allows Twin Feathers to better serve its clients. Twin Feathers joins a growing number of Regional Specialists using the weatherXchange Platform to offer index-based weather Protection to its clients."
Twin Feathers is a supply/risk management advisor offering hedging advice to independent propane retailors. JD Buss, CPA/CTA for Twin Feathers, said, "One of the largest unmitigated risks that a propane retailer deals with annually is related to weather. While traditional propane risk management and supply tools are vital, they remain unable to address weather risk impacts on volume delivered and earnings. The ability to access a wide range of weather risk participants and provide flexibility on pricing instruments all via one platform makes a great opportunity to partner with weatherXchange. We are very pleased to be partnering with Speedwell, a first-class weather data firm, as they work to expand the possibilities in the weather market."
