As ‘old’ and ‘new’ commodity markets mature, it will be a strategic imperative for producers and consumers of those commodities to leverage their inherent advantages — like existing assets, product and capacities — and to rapidly mature their commercial models to both manage the increased risks from these markets; and to actively capture value at stake

The necessity of fighting climate change is creating new sources of demand for commodities and creating interlinkages between different value chains. Traders that are responsive to these seismic shifts can capture enormous value by capitalizing on new sources of optionality — and will be critical to meeting climate targets

    What We Think

    For centuries, traders have played a vital role in ensuring that global goods arrive at the right place, at the right time, to the right specifications, and for the right price. The commodity trader serves as a crucial facilitator of global trade, ensuring the continuation of global commerce, even amidst fluctuating prices and a constantly changing environment. With global demand and supply drivers undergoing structural changes — due to geopolitics, the energy transition, and more — their role in our society, and ability to create value, is only going to grow.
