ESTER’s support in defining and executing our hedging strategy for an Australian Renewables Project has been instrumental. Their support in analyzing the risks of the Australian market, their in-depth knowledge of hedging tools and their support in commercial negotiations with the 7 banks were invaluable and generated value for the project in a particularly unstable environment. ESTER's remuneration structure, including the variable fee part indexed on the value created and calculated in a clear and transparent manner, ensured a constant alignment of interests which made it possible to achieve an optimal solution for the project both in the definition of the hedging strategy and in the negotiations, always in full respect for our banking relationships.
