For select clients, we undertake bespoke consultancy projects where we advise on specific commodities and markets. Due to the increasing trend of traditional commodity trading houses tapping public markets for both debt and equity, and given our team's experience of working in the global commodities trading and investment banking industry, we also advise institutional investors and private family offices who have invested in the equity / debt of commodity trading and mining companies. Projects have included a report commissioned on the viability of a Copper exploration project in West Africa and briefing a large US based hedge fund on the fundamental drivers of certain commodity related stocks.
