Protection Sellers can also be contacted directly by Hedgers to establish a direct dialogue.

Trading Participants are Hedgers who are interested in not just sending but also receiving RFPs for exchange-traded sites. These RFPs will normally be energy-market related.

Corredores-Asesores

Hedgers on weatherXchange may require specialist advice related to weather risk hedging. While weatherXchange staff are available to help with technical questions related to using the Platform, they are not able to provide Investment Advice. Hedgers can however request the assistance of existing Broker-Advisor specialists in the field. Broker-Advisors can also help by giving the Hedger anonymity. The financial basis for the provision of this advice is negotiated between the Hedger and Broker-Advisor directly.
