CONTI Uses @RISK for Shipping Success


amwayLogo.pngCONTI-Group has been a leader in the shipping industry since 1970, operating a large, deep-sea fleet in Germany as well as being an established global provider of ship investment funds. With commercial shipping being one of the most economical and ecological modes of transport for cargo, tangible shipping assets, including tankers and carrier vessels, represent an important form of financial investment.

After the financial crisis of 2007-2008, the European Union introduced new requirements for better regulation and supervision of the financial sector. These objectives aimed to introduce a new level of protection for investors by regulating and supervising all markets, and included the provision of quality and transparency in all capital market investments.

CONTI-Group was already unique in its reputation for financial transparency, but when these regulatory requirements for visibility were introduced, CONTI began using Palisade’s @RISK to construct financial models that capture and assess potential risks in the fluctuating shipping market. This has enabled the company to provide higher levels of transparency to its investors, successfully steer its shipping fleet, and subsequently generate above-average results on its investments.

“We wanted to find a risk management solution that would comply with the requirements of the new regulations, while also providing us with an even better way of tracking and managing financial risks,” explained Martin Stobinski, Managing Director for Risk Management, Compliance and Asset Valuation for CONTI KVG.

@RISK Tips: Designing a Royalty, Ownership and Tax Regime


Excerpted from RISKOptimizer for Business Applications
by Roy Nersesian, published by Palisade Corporation


In this example, we look at a variety of manufacturer situations such as sales that average 300 per day with a standard deviation of 100. Even with such volatility, RISKOptimizer is able to establish a simple rule to turn production on and off via trigger points, as well as determining the length of the production runs to minimize inventory and stockouts. Roy Nersesian first walks through setting up an optimization with a single product, then with multiple products, and lastly compare the results with traditional methods.
