Perret Associates has been involved in the coal market since 2000. Mr Perret was at the forefront of the development of the coal market as it is today, as a front office physical and financial coal trader for RWE Trading in London. The European physical market made a transition from yearly bilateral trading to spot trading. Meanwhile, asset based utilities were transforming themselves into international traders.
Mr Perret was pivotal for this transition within the company. He was also amongst the pioneers who traded the first financial coal swaps in 2000. Since 2005, Perret Associates has grown with the market firstly through its consultancy activities and then with market analysis and forecast business. Perret Associates monitors the pulse of the coal market though its very much hands-on approach and wide range of services such as Training, Consultancy, Market Analysis and Forecasts and Reports.
