Energy Trading and Risk Management

Critical to a company’s success is how it adapts its trading system to new business challenges in terms of efficiency and functionality.

In a rapidly changing energy market, a smart and flexible trading system is a prerequisite. The EU push to foster harmonisation with member countries is driving greater trading volumes while increasing both complexity and risk. This means that trading systems must be integrated with real time risk management strategies to support decisions.

With a deep expertise in the area of risk strategies and modelling, as well as 20 years’ experience in Europe’s most deregulated markets, Brady is uniquely qualified to help companies adjust to emerging demands and maximise their trading opportunities.
