Global commodity traders seek to identify and respond to supply and demand differentials between linked markets. They use arbitrage to trade physical commodities without incurring price risk. They hedge price exposure using exchange-traded contracts and over-the-counter instruments.

Timing, location and product quality are critical for producers, refiners, smelters and industrial users. We source, store, blend and deliver physical commodities worldwide to bridge those gaps.
