Over recent years financial and wholesale market regulators have tightened their scrutiny over the functioning of energy and commodities markets.
New global regulations are being introduced in order to reduce systemic risk and increase market transparency, integrity and market conduct. This is driving energy and commodity sector firms to increase the size and capabilities of their legal, regulatory and compliance functions.
