Finding opportunities where others see risk

DC Energy trades gas, electricity, and other related commodity contracts, with broad expertise across a number of energy products. Through our proprietary strategies, we maintain a balanced portfolio comprising a variety of both standard and custom contracts based on our fundamental and technical views of the markets. Historically, we have focused on investments related to the locational and temporal value and volatility in transport markets for power and natural gas; since inception our activity has steadily grown, and we have now amassed a significantly diverse portfolio.

In addition to trading strategies focused on highly liquid contracts, DC Energy often trades with counterparties to pursue more specific investment objectives. Bulk standard contracts only loosely capture the true risks inherent to producing energy and physically delivering it to distant points; granular and specific contracts better align with the fundamentals of the grid. We leverage our risk management techniques along with rigorous fundamental analysis. Our models have allowed us to diversify our risk with a robust and well-balanced portfolio in these specialty products.

Trading Activities


Trading Activities


DC Energy brings together exceptional talent, longstanding and deep quantitative analysis, inventories of data, robust systems, and committed intellectual and financial capital to deliver our investment and trading capability. As markets become more efficient and expand while uncertainties inflate, we challenge ourselves to innovate our valuation and investment strategies.

Our position is derived from our investments in intellectual capital – people, analysis, data, and systems. As Carveth Read wrote, “it is better to be vaguely right than exactly wrong”, and thus our market teams undertake both quantitative and qualitative methods. We recognize that intelligent and decisive execution rests upon good judgment supported by sophisticated and data-driven analysis.

Using our fundamental outlook, we invest and trade across various forms, combinations, and geographies of financial contracts and physical commodities, both domestically and internationally.
