Commodity Trading

Commodities Raw gold

High leverage and greater diversification.

If you’re an investor looking for a sustainable way to diversify your portfolio, commodity trading may be the answer, as it offers many benefits, including lower margins and an effective means of diversification. 

We can structure solutions for you in the energy industry (oil, coal, and refined products), mining and metals industries (base and precious metals), and exchange traded products (ETPs). We develop financing and commodity price risk solutions tailored for your needs.

Some of the benefits

Mitigate interest rate, currency, country, credit and commodity risks.
