Portfolio Manager

We're looking for a dynamic Portfolio Manager with a commercial inclination to join our environmental commodities team at STX Group's headquarters in Amsterdam. This role requires a professional with a Trading and/or Portfolio Management background, who is excited about leveraging on their existing network in the oil and gas sectors to expand our customer portfolio in the European markets.

STX Commodities 

STX Commodities was launched shortly after the introduction of the Kyoto Protocol in 2005. While the team started with a sole focus on carbon-related products, over the years, we have significantly grown our trading solutions to include a vast number and variety of environmental commodities (both physical renewables and certificates for renewables). Moreover, this division of the company also evolved from an intermediary to a sales-trading firm, which has positioned us better in the market. Today, STX Commodities is a leading global intermediary and sales-trading organization focused on providing market access and creating liquidity in the very dynamic, yet relatively illiquid, international renewable energy market. Country teams are stationed in Amsterdam, New York and Gothenburg.
