Employed since: October 2013
Fun fact: In my spare time I practice show jumping (horseback riding has been a part of my life for 20 years)

MY BACKGROUND

The field of economics has always been one of my greatest interests, so I studied a Master's in Management Accounting and Control at Aarhus University. Before I came to DC, I worked in the Treasury department in LEGO. Here, I learned a lot about financial risk management and decided to focus my career in that direction

WHAT I DO

I work as a Market Risk Analyst where I have the daily responsibility of assessing and quantifying the market risk for one of our business teams. The focus is mostly on the renewables portfolios – making sure that trading happens within mandates and our risk appetite. My role is both to be a guardian and a business partner.  

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

I start my day by making the daily risk surveillance (looking into traded positions, market values, utilisation of mandates and risk measures) and publish the results in reports to relevant stakeholders. The rest of the day I’m in dialogue with the business teams about the movements we see in the markets, how prices are fluctuating, the latest weather forecasts and whether or not we have mitigated the market risk in the best possible way. Furthermore, I work on risk mandates, improving and developing the tools for analyses and conduct risk assessments for current and new business opportunities.
