MET Hungary Zrt.'s (formerly MOL Energiakereskedő Kft) deed of foundation was ratified on 26 February 2007. On the basis of the natural gas trading licence issued by the Hungarian Energy Office, the Company Court registered the trading company, which was then 100% MOL Nyrt's ownership on 24 April 2007. MET Hungary began its active operation on 1 June 2007, with its main activities being the wholesale and retail trading of natural gas.

On 18 December 2009, Normeston Ltd gained a 50% share in the company. The Company's, and its laterformed Austrian, Romanian, Slovak, Croatian and Swiss subsidiaries' shared aim, in accordance with their mission, was to enter the international natural gas markets.

The company's dynamic growth in the European natural gas markets required organisational restructuring. As a result of this, on 15 November 2012, NormestonLtd's 50% share was taken over by Explorer Liquid Fund Ltd. financial investment fund. As of 23 November 2012, MET Group's ownership structure has been as follows: 50% shareholder WISD Holding Ltd., 40% shareholder MOL Nyrt./Ticinum Kft., 10% shareholder MET ManCo AG. RP Explorer Fund Ltd. has changed its name to WISD Holding Ltd. effective as of 28 February 2014.

In 2013, the Group opened up towards a new branch of business, the electricity market, thereby expanding its range of products.

In 2017, Mr. György Nagy, one of MET Group’s indirect owners through WISD Holding Ltd., has bought the 12.665% ownership stake of Mr. Ilya Trubnikov, another indirect owner of MET Group.

In 2018 MET transforms into a management-owned company. MET Group is owned by MET Capital Partners AG, a newly registered investment platform of MET Group CEO, Benjamin Lakatos. MET Group managers participate via a share program through MET ManCo AG for up to 20%.
