Axpo acclaimed as the leading worldwide power trader

In the anual “Risk” and “Energy Risk” survey, over 1600 market players and clients are asked to assess counterparties according to criteria such as price, flexibility, market making, reliability, integrity and processing speed. Axpo already ranked among the best in the past – and was able to further improve ratings this year: For the first time ever, Axpo was acclaimed the leading worldwide power trader in the Energy & Commodity Rankings”. The good result indicates that Axpo has forged an excellent position in Europe thanks to its extensive know-how. Given the challenging market environment in the energy sector, realistic growth opportunities in the future will be found particularly abroad. With its strong local presence in over 20 European countries, Axpo holds an important trump card. This became especially evident in financial year 2013/14: The international origination business offering individual solutions for marketing and procuring power, gas as well as energy certificates for customers all over Europe increased by some 40% in comparison to the previous year.

Domenico De Luca, Head of Trading & Sales at Axpo, is pleased with the success in the “Risk” and “Energy Risk” survey: “This outstanding result is another step forward in comparison to previous years and proof for our distinct expertise. We approach the needs of our clients flexibly and that pays off for everyone”.
