Electronic trading provider signs Trianel as 50th client

Trayport, the leading supplier of multi-asset-class electronic trading systems, today announced its continued growth through the signing of its 50th client, Trianel European Energy Trading GmbH. Trianel provides solutions for energy procurement and marketing, as well as energy and emissions trading and has purchased Trayport’s GlobalVision Trading Gateway system.

“We chose Trayport because its GlobalVision solution gives us market clarity and enables us to expand our trading strategies across Pan-European markets. We are also able to simplify and improve efficiency in key trading processes, such as STP, into this core, flexible system,” says Dr. Alexander Kox, Head of Power Trading, Trianel. “For any trading organisation it is important to have confidence in your partners and we believe that Trayport’s success indicates they understand what our market needs.”

“Reaching the milestone of our 50th client is an important step in Trayport’s growth and we are delighted to mark this occasion by welcoming Trianel,” says Elliott Piggott, Commercial Director at Trayport. “Trianel’s adoption of Trading Gateway highlights the continued trend in European organisations adopting advanced trading strategies and the competitive advantages to be gained through the use of GlobalVision.”

To support this unprecedented growth and other recent client wins, Trayport is also announcing new hires across its sales and client service teams. Nathan Amery and Chris Weir join Trayport in the position of Sales Managers and Andrew Abbotsford-Smith as Client Manager.

Andrew Abbotsford-Smith joins Trayport as Client Manager with over 10 years of experience in business development and client relationship roles. Previously Andrew held positions at Software Spectrum, Shell Oil and IBM International in Australia and New Zealand. At Trayport, he will primarily focus on the Trading Gateway commodity clients in Europe. Nathan Amery and Chris Weir will be responsible for building Trayport's business in Europe as Sales Managers.
