Two London-based carbon trading veterans are on the move after parting ways with their respective employers, they told Carbon Pulse.
Mark Owen-Lloyd has left Curzon Securities to focus on his own firm – Owen-Lloyd Futures – which he is trading out of the London offices of brokers Marex Spectron.
He said he is trading his own book and looking mainly at Brent crude and FTSE futures for the moment, but he plans to add EU carbon back to his portfolio soon.
Owen-Lloyd, who has previously worked for utility E.ON and CF Partners, added that he is still doing some work for Curzon, as well as some carbon-related consulting on the side.
Meanwhile, Benedikt von Butler left Swiss-based trading house Mercuria late last year and is currently on gardening leave, pondering his next move, he told Carbon Pulse.
Von Butler, who has previously worked for Citigroup and brokers CantorCO2e and Evolution Markets, had handled trading and structuring in carbon and biomass markets from Mercuria’s London offices before he parted ways with the firm.
