ACES is an energy management company based out of Indianapolis, with other locations in Raleigh, NC, Tucson, AZ, and Minneapolis, MN. We do a lot of the in-between work of utility companies and actual energy markets. I started at ACES as an Hourly Trader and now am a Portfolio Performance Analyst. Starting out on the trading desk, I've learned the operational side of things in the industry and it has given me a great base of knowledge in order for me to move up. Now I am able to see results of our clients portfolios and give them suggestions on how to improve it. I definitely love working here and love my previous/current job. It takes a person knowledgeable in economics and able to think on their feet in a fast paced environment. I think all my classes from senior year helped my excel in my job starting out more quickly than others. Not to mention that if a student is interested in commodity trading...electricity is definitely a commodity. So I'm hoping we can hire more students from Purdue and hopefully they will love it too :)
If you know anyone interested, they can contact me at this email address if they would like to know more information!
