Technology and regulation change game plan for brokers

Technological developments have transformed the face of European energy broking beyond recognition. Now regulatory changes could potentially alter this landscape even further. Alex Davis and Katie Holliday speak to the major brokers about their vision for the future of energy broking in Europe

Change on the horizon

With the European Commission working on draft proposals to update its derivatives and energy markets legislation, the precise future for Europe’s energy brokers is unknown, but change is certain. The gradual growth of ‘electronic screen’ trading amongst most of the over-the-counter (OTC) energy asset classes over the past 10 years has already fundamentally altered the energy broking landscape and looks set to leave Europe’s energy brokers in a good position irrespective of new legislation.
