Marex Spectron, the global commodities broker, today announced the appointment of Jan Issling to head up its EU Emissions business and the launch of a dedicated EU carbon emissions business for underlying and options.
Mr. Issling joined in December from PVM Oil, where he ran their emissions flat price and options business. Before that he was at ICAP. Mr. Issling has been broking carbon emissions since 2004.
Marex Spectron’s EU carbon emissions desk offers OTC and exchange cleared trades, flat prices, time spreads and options.
Jeremy Elliott, Head of Energy at Marex Spectron, commented: “Jan is a great name in this space and his arrival gives us a solid foothold in the EU emissions market. We have been covering EU emissions options as part of a broader offering, but now see significant opportunities and delighted to be able to offer a dedicated desk.”
