Meet Lisbeth Lind Laursen

Education: Master's in Mathematics-Economics
Position: Market Risk Analyst
Employed since: October 2020
Fun fact: I flunked my tractor driver's license test (even though I was raised on a farm...)

MY BACKGROUND

I have always loved numbers, but I did not want to just study math. So, in my research for what to study I simply googled “mathematics economics”, and there was my answer: Mathematics-Economics at Aarhus University.

WHY I WANTED TO WORK FOR DC

For several years I worked for another energy trading company, and it was time for me to see how risk monitoring also could be done. I wanted to enhance my skills, get deeper insights into a specific market area like gas, and at the same time put my knowledge to use in a new environment.

My colleagues have different backgrounds, cultural and educational, so there is a lot to learn from them.

WHAT I DO

One of my main tasks is to monitor that our Gas business teams are within their given risk mandates. I am also involved in reassessing the current mandates, so that they are up to date with what the business teams' wants and needs, and the current risks in the market.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

I have daily tasks like monitoring the positions of the gas portfolio, reporting on results for the business team, making sanity checks on the numbers.

I always have a focus on making the risk reporting even better. Besides that, there are always different ongoing projects related to the gas business area.
