Organisations that produce, trade, transport and process raw materials are inextricably connected with the sleepless global commodities market. Controlling and monitoring operating margins in fastpaced markets requires efficient processes, effective people structures and technology in order to execute transactions with maximum automation and reduced human intervention. In such a competitive environment, it has become critical to invest in performance-strengthening projects to stay ahead of other market participants.
Growth is also being achieved through launching new services and offerings, such as risk management and route to market services. Multiple business units covering multiple geographies have only limited visibility of their client relationships, and many of our clients are investing to make their trading operations more customer centric. Regulatory changes, such as the EU’s MiFID II and Market Abuse Regulation have increased demands for transparency at every stage.
