Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- CTA Firm Genuine Trading Solutions Sign Strategic Partnership Agreement With Leading Environmental Credit Brokerage and Climate Change Consulting firm Karbone.
Genuine Trading Solutions President and CEO, Dwayne Strocen and Karbone Executive Director Izzet Bensusan announced today a Strategic Partnership agreement. "The two companies will be pooling their resources to provide an enhanced product line of services to existing as well as future emitters of CO2 carbon emissions. The conception for this Strategic Partnership is in response to calls from North American customers to provide a more integrated service" says Mr. Strocen.
Working in a positive approach with Karbone to provide an enhanced service of OTC environmental credit brokerage is a step to providing greater integration of service in the form of both trading and managing risk. In working together, both companies can now provide a greater range of expertise to a largely fragmented industry. Mr. Bensusan says "We believe the marriage of the OTC market and the exchange traded market is the natural evolution of a fledgling industry". And he adds "Our partnership will allow us to much better serve both of our US and Canadian customers with an expanded service line and local knowledge"
