Making Partnership with MFT Energy

Meet Orhan – analytics wizard and new partner at MFT Energy

I hold a BA in Physics and a Master’s in Mechanical Engineering with a focus on dynamic modelling of wind turbines. During my studies, I held a student job at an energy trading company and quickly took a liking to the industry.

In November 2020, I joined MFT Energy as an analyst in the intraday power trading team. Back then, we did not have an analytics setup, so it was a possibility to build up the team from scratch. Today, I have taken on the Lead role with an objective to ensure the best cooperation between analytics and trading.

At MFT Energy, people are hired to do what they are good at, and our trading teams are built by utilizing the best of two worlds: coupling the commercial mindset of a trader with the quantitative mindset of an analyst. Combined, this duo can make great commercial decisions with as little risk as possible.

How would you describe MFT Energy?

The company has a unique vibe and a high degree of employee motivation to it. The time from idea to execution is short, and the process landscape is something you can influence and help shape. In that way, you can leave your footprint which is motivating to me.

What does it mean to you to become partner?

I am excited to make partner at MFT Energy and for sure it has increased my level of commitment to the company. I am very much aware that my contributions help shape the MFT Energy of tomorrow, and it keeps me motivated to know that my efforts are part of a larger plan to IPO the company in 2023.

Often, people are surprised to hear that all employees at MFT Energy can work towards partnership; however, the partnership model is part of the company’s DNA, and it is communicated by Management openly and transparently.

Which three things would you highlight about MFT Energy?

Trying to sum up, I would highlight the following:

  • Dynamic and agile environment: We can adapt to new work methods and changes in the market. Of course, we have a set of guiding stars that cannot be tampered with such as risk management; however, in general there is an openness to new ideas and methods
  • Engaged and motivated colleagues: You do not have to stop by for long before you sense that people are very passionate about what they do. Everyone feels engaged and want to help drive the company to the next level
  • Being part of something from the very beginning: It is a unique feeling to be able to build up processes from start to end. Our traders and analysts work closely together and although their outlook is completely different, we have succeeded in establishing a good work process that utilizes the strength of both parties
