Deutsche Builds Energy Trading
Deutsche Bank has hired Christopher Plante, former trader with energy company Constellation Energy. He's the second power and natural gas trader brought on by the bank in as many months as banks hire to take advantage of strong commodities markets.
Last month, the company hired Steve Wang as a director for U.S. power trading in the commodities group of its global markets division, also reporting to Smith.
Plante was most recently vice president responsible for power trading at Constellation Energy and was previously an electricity trader at New Energy Ventures.
