London,  11, March 2013 Trayport, a leading provider of energy trading solutions to traders, brokers and exchanges worldwide, today announced that it has come first in two top rankings – best Post-Trade Services and best Coal Trading from Energy Risk magazine.

The 2013 Energy Risk Software Ranking winners were announced after participants were asked to nominate their leading vendors based on a number of criteria. These included functionality, usability, performance, return on investment and reliability.

Elliott Piggott, Trayport's CEO said, 'We are delighted to have come first in these two key ranking categories. The energy markets are constantly evolving and new regulation is certain to drive further change. Participants need the confidence that their vendor has the solutions to help them meet any new challenge. When we launched Complete℠, our suite of Post-Trade services, the goal was to help the transparency and smooth operation of the energy markets. We are happy that market participants have recognised our efforts."

'The ranking for Coal Trading recognises the importance of Trayport's solution in facilitating liquidity and driving growth in the coal markets. In particular, we have supported the trend towards trading cleared contracts. We now have exchange competition, which is a positive development for traders and brokers and it will likely increase overall participation in the market.' He added 'We will continue to invest in developing industry leading solutions to support the growth of our clients and the energy markets globally.'

The Software Ranking event will be held on the 13th June in London.
