Why are Commodities the focus?

Commodities represent the most elegant and important form of global trade, for the following reasons:

  • Seasoned market. Financing global commodity trade was the earliest form of lending activity that can be traced back centuries. This activity was the cornerstone of many banks throughout the modern era.
  • Historical performance of the asset class e.g. Low default rate, lower than 99% of credit strategies, with one of the most highly predictable cash flows, based on ICC data.
  • Risk adjusted returns are far superior to nearly all private credit asset classes.
  • Well established quality specifications & standardisation in transactions.
  • Price discoverable & largely indexed via global exchanges.
  • Fungible & Transferable - generic nature allows for easy resale.
  • Huge participation within the global supply chain between producer and consumer.
  • $14tn of annual global commodity trade.
  • Significant annual liquidity shortfall, now estimated at 5tn.
  • Banks as the traditional lenders, have been exiting the market due to legislative pressures becoming unmanageable from a capital adequacy perspective.
  • Alternative financing and digitisation is the future and solution.
  • Energy transition and NETzero can only be achieved with comprehensive funding of the liquidity gap.
  • Essential for the real economy, sec - Energy, food, materials.
  • Impactful - Commodities are typically sourced from emerging markets. Inflows of capital are critical for growth and development of emerging nations, as the main contributor to GDP’s.
  • Providing commodity trade finance is essential and immediate, in order to ensure the future of our world.
