London,12 April 2022: ION Commodities, a global leader in energy and commodity management solutions (CMS), ranked first in Chartis Research’s Energy50 survey for the second year in a row. ION Commodities offers a comprehensive portfolio of trading, risk management, and innovative decision support solutions that leverage data for better business insights and supply chain optimisation in complex and volatile markets.
Every year Chartis Research—the leading provider of research and analysis on the global market for risk technology—conducts a thorough analysis of the world’s major technology players across the energy space. Chartis Research then ranks them based on a series of criteria – functionality, core technology, market presence, strategy, and innovation – in their Energy50 survey.
“The software and technology firms we survey differ considerably, but share common qualities that rank them highly in the energy space,” said Sid Dash, Research Director at Chartis. “ION Commodities’ overall win and seven category awards reflect its ongoing strength in energy markets, a performance bolstered by its broad and flexible offering that can adapt to changing market conditions.”
“We would like to thank Chartis for recognizing our leading role in connecting the industry and engaging with our 1,200 clients and over 30,000 end users to shape the future of energy and commodities management. This award demonstrates our clients’ trust in our ability to support them in their journeys,” says Sunil Biswas, Chief Product Officer at ION Commodities.
While innovating for energy transition and renewables, ION Commodities is also continuing to support traditional energy sources, winning category awards for oil and gas markets and trade management, coal trade and risk management, and coal logistics and optimisation.
“Transition in energy markets is a key focus for firms across the energy spectrum,” said John MacDonagh, Senior Research Specialist at Chartis. “ION’s strength in traditional markets – reflected in its category wins this year – is supported by a commitment to digitalisation across the board that will prove vital in the coming years.”
ION Commodities’ goal is to be the businesses partner of choice in the crucial energy transition journey. As part of its mission, ION will continue to deliver best-in-class trading and risk systems across all market segments to customers spanning the entire needs-complexity spectrum, from small independent traders to large global enterprises. “We want to remain at the forefront of digitalising the industry,” adds Biswas. “With that mission in mind, we will continue to invest in engineering our products with modern technologies to support market evolution and the changing regulatory landscape around de-carbonisation.”
