Merrill gas traders join commodities merchant


Merrill gas traders join commodities merchant

Freepoint Commodities has hired a pair of European natural gas traders from Bank of America Merrill Lynch in London.
Eiker Schick is joining the energy merchant next month, whilst Mike Joyner joined the firm last week, SparkSpread has learned.
Schick spent four years at BAML, initially sitting on the power shift-trading desk, managing the output and optimization of several U.K. power plants. He moved into gas trading two years back.
Joyner spent two years as an analyst on BAML’s European gas trading desk.
The pair left Merrill earlier this year as part of the closure of its European power & gas trading business.
At the end of last year, Freepoint also hired Rob Bullyment from BAML as a senior energy originator in London.
