Veteran Market Advocates Will Facilitate and Stimulate Trading Activities Across a Variety of Energy Markets

Chicago – February 16, 2016 – TruMarx Data Partners, Inc., the leading provider of powerful technology solutions for energy markets, today announced its new Concierge Trading Services (CTS) offering.

Led by Market Advocates who are veterans of commodity and energy markets, the new TruMarx Concierge Trading Services are designed to stimulate trading activity across the natural gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG), retail gas and power as well as biodiesel markets. Commodities, derivatives and risk management professional, Chris Konrad, joins the TruMarx team as General Manager of Market Advocacy, focused on natural gas and LNG. Konrad brings deep expertise in energy market dynamics to the TruMarx Concierge Trading Services team, as a broker and risk management consultant with such leading firms as Amerex, Edge Energy and ICAP.

Konrad and the TruMarx CTS Market Advocates will:
• Enhance and evangelize the efficiency, liquidity and transparency of the marketplace
• Encourage order flow and trade volumes in target commodities
• Pair buyers and sellers with a special focus on non-standard, complex trades
• Help execute trades with greater confidence, control and compliance

These Concierge trades will be fulfilled using the powerful TruMarx COMET platform. COMET is an innovative cloud software solution that facilitates the negotiation and execution of bi-lateral OTC transactions.

Says Dan Zastawny, President of TruMarx Data Partners and energy market development expert, “Now more than ever before, with the volatility and uncertainty in energy commodity markets, it’s important to ensure great synergy between the buy and sell side of the market. This is the goal of our new Concierge Trading Services strategy.”
