Fun fact: I've got five chicken in my garden
I started my experience in Energy trading by writing my thesis about options valuation in the Nordic Power Market. It gave me a good foundation of the dynamics in the commodity markets. I started my trading career in Energi Danmark in times where the power markets started to mature and where the effect of renewables in the energy system started to kick in.
I have always seen DC as a top performer and a front runner in developing the energy markets. When I was between jobs it was therefore natural for me to turn my attention to DC. With 8 years of experience in the energy business and my three core competencies within Trading, Business Development and Leadership, I thought it would be a clear match. Luckily DC saw it the same way.
Tor Mosegaard, VP, Head of European Power Trading
I am responsible for all our European Power Trading activities. That means all products from what can be traded out many years in advance to delivery in the next hour - in 35 countries. Behind every trader, there are skillful analysts and data scientists that provide great support to all the trading decisions that need to be taken every day, hour and even minute.
I will say it is difficult to define. No two days are the same in DC or in energy trading. There are always things in progress so an agile alignment process is where I put most of my effort. But on a typical day, we discuss market development, mandate limits and potential new business cases.
I like to see people succeed and it inspires me when collaboration creates learning and synergies across teams and units. I have a hard time figuring out which job would be more fun than that.
The success of our company is built on having the brightest minds working across the entire organisation.
