Drawing on many years of professional experience working at some of the worlds leading financial houses I have offered a commodity consultancy service for agricultural commodities such as Wheat, Corn, Sugar, Soybeans & non ferrous metals since 2005,facilitating direct and transparent contact between the buyer and end seller/producer.

Our network of sellers includes mining companies, cooperatives, mills, smelters and trading companies based in South America,USA and Africa (metals and ores). One of our major strengths being the ability to mediate between the primary market (closed to all but major market participants/producers) and the secondary market where vast quantities of spurious bids and offers circulate along with the very worst that our internet age has created. Our seller relationships allows buyers to interface with both primary and top tier secondary market participants of high professional standing in many markets including grains,primary base metals and ferrous scrap products. All sellers we propose are proven sellers with who we have confirmed trading history. Recent activity in the secondary market for ferrous and non ferrous metals has extended our portfolio of commodities to which we are proud to offer buyers access to non LME reg copper cathodes from bona fide African sellers. Since 2013 Copper has become my core activity accounting for 90% of the business conducted.
With a proven track record our service enables us to offer the buyer direct acces to the most competitive CIF or FOB or Ex Works prices and deal directly with the end sellers and owners/title holders of the product. We take pride in our professional ability to introduce our buyers towards the safest & most professional seller and are committed to help our clients make profitable and prudent and above all risk managed choices and decisions for both short and long term contracts.
"Jack of all trades, master of none": This is exactly what is not needed ! I have instead concentrated on developing long term relationships in the African copper supply chain. I consider it is important to master a specific market such as copper cathodes and to be confident with all aspects of this industry and to share expertise and our proven sellers.
While offering a discreet,professional and dynamic service we simply ask to be judged on the final result: Competitive pricing and a transparent and seamless and safe contract procedure process conducted with highly professional sellers and where all parties are fully proficiant in international trade. To successfully facilitate any deal the intermediary must also know when to stand back and allow direct contact between both primary parties.The strength of our seller relationships means this direct contact between buyer and seller carries no risk of circumvention and indeed I believe it is a critical element in the art of closing a successful copper cathode deal. Physical commodity trading is a documented analogue process with no digital instant execution (as availible in the futures markets) and both buyer and seller must proceed with complete confidence in each others ability to forfill their obligations. It is for this reason we perform due diligence on all buyer enquiries and ask for corporate information & background history on the buyer. All our sellers will provide fully documented profiles and are available for introductory conference calls to answer any buyers questions and concerns.
We expect all intermediaries we deal with to uphold the higest professional standards and integrity.

All INCOTERMS are 2010
Please note: all documentation must be issued by end buyer in name of seller. Under no circumstances can any document be accepted that is issued by intermediaries/mandates/facilitators on behalf of buyers.
* We hope to soon announce a new trading venture with a new London based company where we and our partners will act as a principal counterparty in cathode sales. This will allow us the flexibility to offer a growing range of offers in 2017 to selected buyers.
