Fun fact: I don't drink coffee
During my studies, I had various positions in a bank with the ultimate dream of being a stock trader. But I found out that I needed a little more action, which made DC the perfect match for me.
I had heard about the passion and culture in DC among the employees and found that very inspirational. Safe to say, it did not disappoint.
Anders Bjerre Therkildsen, Head of Intraday Asset Trading
I am the manager of our Intraday Asset Trading desk which means that I am responsible for trading, development and recruitment within this area. Trading entails optimisation of our renewables portfolios across Europe, which is done 24/7. We can trade with most countries very close to actual delivery of the physical power (down to 5 minutes), making it a very volatile market.
Normally I have meetings about our trading performance and how we continue the development of the trading. This involves strategies, trends, weather scenarios and analyses. I also prioritise time with our stakeholders - especially our Automated Trading team to keep on developing our algorithms, as we have seen a much larger impact of algorithms in the market in recent years. Besides that, I am of course trading alongside the rest of the team.
I thoroughly enjoy working with passionate and very skilled people that are willing to go the extra mile to win.
