TFS Energy hosts first Italian weather derivatives trade and Dutch auction

TFS' US weather derivatives division completed the auction on behalf of a client who, the brokerage said, was looking to offset its risk, and gave no further details.

TFS says that offers were solicited for cumulative average temperature calls in Rome for the May–September 2008 time period. The auction had a total of $40 million in notional risk placed, and TFS says it was oversubscribed in terms of the capacity that was available in the market.
