Peyman Mestchian, Managing Partner at Chartis, said "The report highlights the diversity of products and vendors in the ETRM market, however, there are a large number of common drivers creating common business and technology requirements across the energy trading risk management marketplace, including the convergence of requirements for both physical and financial products. Additionally, there is often overlap across assets for participants in this space, which means that systems must be ready to meet the needs of interconnected markets and provide greater cross-asset coverage.
