About the Podcast

"We chat about leading a startup software company, how AEGIS sets itself apart from the traditional old school way of hedging, what hedging is explained to a 5-year-old, how hedging is used to control volatility, the importance of work-life balance, what he does when he's stressed or struggling and more." -JP Warren



  • Hedging is about creating certainty and exchanging your risk for a fixed price.
  • When there's more volatility, people are more likely to hedge.
  • How does a company want to think about hedging?
  • They could use it to cover debt, dividends, lock in their production, or something else.
  • "Being present in your family's life is extremely important" - JP Warren
  • "If you have to stretch [financially] on something, stretch on something that you can build your family around" - Bryan Sansbury
  • Make a decision, you can spend a ton of time getting perfect, but there's always more information to gather, and often times it's good enough to just act.
