Essent Trading implemented Asset Control’s data management software to replace Essent Trading’s proprietary pricing database.


Essent Trading uses the Asset Control solution to centralize energy and commodity market data in a faster, scalable and extensible environment with sophisticated analytical requirements.

Asset Control was the best fit for our criteria for future business functionality, performance, scalability and robustness. The software’s time-series calculations were a key factor in our decision, as was its ability to streamline data export and data access and reduce risks by allowing a more precise view of data.”
