Understanding commodity trading

Providing structure and methodology, and resources with in-depth understanding and hands-on experience from the commodity trading industry, is key to delivering high-quality projects on time and on budget. At CommodityFirst, most of our consultants have a background from the commodity trading industry, as former C-level managers, trading desk heads, originators, or risk managers.

Understanding commodity trading technology

As commodity traders adopt and embrace new technologies to meet the ever-growing complexity of the supply chain and trading, along with the transformation to greener and renewable energy, greater emphasis is placed on having technical experts with business knowledge of up-to-date technology. CommodityFirst is well placed with experienced technologists and engineers with extensive commodities trading and market knowledge to assist in this transformation journey.
