Commodity trading is often more about the fundamentals and analytics behind trade execution, and this fund build and optimise their own models from scratch, providing a significant edge to their trading. A Gas Modelling Analyst is required as they expand their expertise in the UK and EU gas markets. The successful incumbent will develop predominantly stack gas pricing models, with strong Excel, VBA, C++, or relevant technical skills in order to forecast futures prices on TTF, NCG and other EU hubs as well as NBP.

Main responsibilities:

  • Forecast, on a daily and intra-daily basis Gas demand, and therefore Futures prices for relevant countries in the UK and Europe
  • Maintain and improve existing gas models and set up new models for additional countries when needed.
  • Consult to analysts and in house traders covering the European Energy space.

Experience required:

  • Numerate degree - Masters level ideally.
  • Gas price modelling (stack or other) and forecasting experience essential, from a physical energy major or iBank.
  • Must have a wide-breadth modelling toolkit - Excel, VBA, C, Matlab, and/or other
  • Fundamental market knowledge of UK and EU gas markets

Their culture at this fund is very relaxed, and staff are judged on the quality of their work rather than time spent at the desk - rewarded with an exceptional bonus-driven compensation structure.
