high international standards

from ships to storage

We understand that every commodities market is different. We work with our customers to identify and develop solutions which work best for them, helping them manage physical risk and optimize opportunities.
In all of our physical operations we seek to work with partners who share our commitment to high international standards of operation. The infrastructure upon which we rely, from ships to storage, is subject to our due diligence processes. We invest in long-term partnerships and understand that the commercial context can vary with time.
We sit at the heart of global energy flows, brokering the movement of energy and bulk materials between source and customer as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. At the foundation of our business is the long-term relationships we build with our clients. Our expertise, market understanding, and the reliable facilitation of delivery of service is what distinguishes us. We pride ourselves on being consistently on time, on task, and on specification.
We work collaboratively with our customers and partners to identify and implement optimal solutions.

Specialized Commodities

In a market dominated by a handful of large trade companies, we seek to deliver value to our clients and enable quality execution through flexible and innovative trade structures in each asset class.

Refined and precious metals

We broker the trade of copper cathodes, copper blister and copper wire rods, aluminum, lead, zinc, nickel and precious metals. We have the knowledge and relationships required to facilitate the swift and cost-effective movement of metals around the world. Our focus is on meeting the varying needs of producers and end-users.

3,332

tonnes of global gold mine production was reported in 2018.

Crude oil

Crude oil is a natural fossil fuel which, once refined, is used to create most of the energy sources used industrially and domestically, from gasoline and diesel to power vehicles, to jet fuel for aircraft and fuel for ships. It is also used widely in the production of chemical products such as pharmaceuticals, solvents, fertilizers, pesticides and plastics.

Iron ore

Iron ore is the core component of steel, which is used in many forms of modern construction. Steel can be recycled – on average it takes 17 years for a piece of steel to be reused – so demand is proportionately much higher in countries which are industrializing. Today, China produces half of the world’s steel, some two million tonnes per day. It imports 80 million tonnes of iron ore a month and accounts for two thirds of seaborne demand.
Australia is the largest exporter of iron ore with 760 million tonnes in 2015.

40%

of the world’s global electrcity and nearly a third energy needs are met by use of coal.

COAL

Coal, a sedimentary rock composed mainly of carbon, is used to produce electricity or heat through combustion. It currently meets nearly a third of the world’s energy needs and produces approximately 40% of global electricity. Coke, a fuel usually derived from coal is used for smelting iron ore during steel manufacturing.

Middle
distillates

Middle distillates refers to a range of refined products situated between lighter fractions, such as LPG or gasoline, and heavier products such as fuel oil. Typically they include jet fuel, heating kerosene, and gas and diesel oils, such as marine bunker fuels. Diesel is mainly used for transportation. Heating kerosene is processed for commercial and domestic heating, whereas jet fuel is used to power the engines of commercial and military aircraft.  
The United States imports more petroleum than it exports.

GASOLINE

Gasoline continues to fuel most of the world’s car fleet; it is made by blending a number of refined products with this blend varying from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, depending on local requirements.

NATURAL GAS

Natural gas is a hydrocarbon gas mixture largely made up of methane and some other gases. The gas is typically removed from deep underground rock formations with drilling rigs, processed to remove impurities such as water and carbon dioxide, and sold as consumer fuel for heating, cooking or generating wholesale electricity. It is also used to power vehicles and in the manufacture of plastics and chemicals.
