Environmental Finance | Redshaw AdvisorsRedshaw Advisors win top Environmental Finance emissions trading awards Dec 2014 – London

The team at Redshaw Advisors are proud to announce that we have been voted top in the following Environmental Finance Carbon Market Rankings awards in what is only our first year of operation:

  • Best Trading Company, Spot & Futures (EU ETS)
  • Best Trading Company, secondary market, Kyoto Project credits
  • Best Advisory/Consultancy (EU ETS)

We were also runners-up in the following categories:

  • Best Trading Company, Options (EU ETS)
  • Best Advisory/Consultancy (Kyoto Project Credits)

The Rankings are the largest and most closely watched poll of sentiment across the carbon, renewable energy certificates, weather risk and catastrophe risk markets. They are based on more than 1,000 votes cast by readers and other participants in the markets that Environmental Finance covers.

Firms were not allowed to vote for themselves, but the winners received votes from clients and peers who judged that they had provided the best service over the past 12 months.

“Optimism has returned to many of the markets we cover, particularly in the carbon world” said Peter Cripps, editor of Environmental Finance. “The winners of our 15th Annual Market Rankings are in many cases those that have persevered through the bad times, and are well placed for an upturn.”

From Environmental Finance’s article:

“There is a sense that this year’s winners have ‘hung in there’ while many around them folded or ran for the hills. Now their perseverance has left them in a strong position to reap the rewards amid signs that markets are less hostile.

While the market is dominated by some old hands, in some cases new players have seized the opportunity to create a space for themselves, filling the void left when more established players exited the markets.

Redshaw Advisors is a perfect example. Its founder Louis Redshaw was formerly Barclays’ head of environmental trading, before the bank walked away from carbon.

“We aim to fill that gap with all that was good from Barclays’ carbon desk,” he told Environmental Finance.

Redshaw Advisors has a core team of just four but has already made an impact on voters, winning three gongs.”

This year’s awards follow in the tradition of award winning service that Louis Redshaw started at Barclays. We are honoured by the support of market participants and the value that they place on the service and product offering that we provide.  We look forward to continuing our award winning work with carbon emissions market participants in 2015.
