Through our portfolio management service, Markedskraft acts as representative for, and conducts transactions through our portfolio clients' accounts.
There are two different approaches to handling transactions:
  • Clearing client solution
  • Non-clearing (commission) client solution
The clearing client solution means that a clearing agreement is established with Nord Pool Spot and NASDAQ OMX Commodities respectively, and with the local Transmission System Operator where that is needed. This solution provides a highly transparent pricing model where all transactions are agreed upon and settled at market price without the risk of additional cost elements.

Counterparty risk is also eliminated since all agreements have NASDAQ OMX Clearing as the counterparty and there is no trading with bilateral contracting parties.

This solution requires that the client provides collateral equivalent to the size of the transactions.

The commission client solution is an alternative trading set-up where an external party takes over the counterparty relationships and collateral requirements. This solution does not require the same level of collateral and the client is given the opportunity to receive a total price for all services.

We offer the following advisory services: Strategy development and risk management - Custom strategy workshops - Market information and advice - Consumption hedging – Production price hedging and portfolio management.
