Since its inception 15 years ago, Ezpada has successfully grown from a regional power trading company to a pan-European energy trader and to its position today as a diversified commodity trading house. The portfolio of products traded by the group includes power, natural gas, oil and refined products, coal, gold, freight, agricultural products and emission certificates.
Ezpada was founded by three private individuals in 2004; both Ezpada AG in Zug and Ezpada SRO were set up and the trading floor was located in Prague.
The company’s founders had already proven themselves as successful power traders on the European energy markets. They utilized an innovative business model of cross-border power trading and a network of local offices was created in order to support this model and have physical presence in such markets.
Starting in 2012, the founders began to progressively hand over management to dedicated managers from the industry. This also coincides with the period when one of the three original partners exited. The founders remain involved in the Group in an advising and mentoring role.
Since 2013, the Group has transitioned from a family business to a corporate structure with an established governance, risk management and compliance framework.
Ezpada has organically expanded its portfolio of traded products to the full range of commodity products traded today.
Diversification, synergies and experience achieved through a successful history of more than 15 years have proven Ezpada’s concept and turned into a sustainable strategy for future development.
