Other than in liquid commodity and weather markets originating goes far beyond the function of a commodity broker who simply tries to match best bid and offer for a highly standardized product with defined execution schemes.
Originating means understanding the market participants intentions, being aware of their flexibilities and constraints, be it with respect to product structure, risk, credit, execution possibility etc. We provide origination services for complex structured physical and financial transactions in the energy and weather space with focus on renewables, power and natural gas. On request such solutions might also include insurance type parts.
Depending on structure, parameters involved and legal environment such arrangements might include more than two participants.
