Description

Unique New Product for Trading and Commercial Skills Development

TwoTwoFive provides fresh training solutions using unique simulation technology to enable superior candidate development.

We have developed a highly innovative product for training and, if required, assessing delegates’ commercial and trading skills in the Gas, Power, Coal, Emissions, FX and Oil commodity markets; all of our presenters are highly experienced Oil and Gas Traders.

We currently have four different business streams:
• Graduate recruitment and development.
• Educating middle and back office personnel who interact with traders and wish to enhance their knowledge of trading through an interactive application of trading concepts.
• Assessing and educating potential and junior traders.
• Team building days.

Each course combines imaginative presentations with hands-on trading simulations that reinforce the learning points and allow participants to experience what it’s like to sit in a trading-seat.

Our courses can either be delivered in our conference facilities or we are equally able and happy to deliver the training on your premises or location of choice.

Chris Holmes
Director

During my career I was involved in all aspects of the physical and derivative gas business. I began trading at BP where I worked for 7 years, focusing on value generation at the front end of the gas curve. I left BP in 2007 to join UBS before rounding off my trading career as Head of European Gas at JP Morgan. Since working at TwoTwoFive I have learnt a lot about Crude Oil Trading. My family and I moved from London to Norwich in 2014, where things move at an altogether more leisurely pace.

I have over 15 years’ experience in the gas and power industry working for ExxonMobil, Enron and BP in a variety of back and front office roles. During my time at BP, I was a Contract Manager for a large Power Station as well as the senior UK power trader, trading the prompt, curve and interconnector electricity markets, as well as the carbon emissions element of the clean spark spreads. Later, I moved on to trade the UK gas curve and finally the European gas curve covering France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands , Belgium and France.

I have over 15 year’s experience with BP. I have worked in a broad range of trading roles in oil, gas and LNG markets. I traded Heating Oil in Europe before switching commodities to trade natural gas in the US. I then set up a team to trade UK NBP gas v US Henry Hub gas and was book leader for the LNG financial team, managing the hedging of BP’s LNG Portfolio and speculatively trading global oil and gas. I have also worked in North Sea Crude operations, production planning at a Rotterdam refinery and in the BP group economics team.

Director

I have spent 30 years of my career working in oil trading. I was regarded as an industry expert in the area of trading operations for crude oils in the North Sea and Middle East before progressing to a senior leadership position within BP’s international trading division. I was also Chairman of the British Pipeline Agency. As BP’s Head of European Supply, I was directly responsible for the trading teams which were optimising the purchase and risk management of 75 million m3 p.a. of petroleum products. I am a founding partner of TwoTwoFive.

Stefan Dixon
Director

During my trading career at BP I traded derivatives as part of a risk-management team, and paper and physical Crude Oil on the North Sea bench. Then as Trading Book Leader for Europe and the USA I was responsible for all entrepreneurial and asset-based Fuel Oil trading. At BP I was heavily involved in trader selection, training and mentoring, and I decided to pursue this passion full-time, co-founding TwoTwoFive in 2011. Away from work, I spend time with my family and am also a keen cyclist.
