Tactical trade opportunities

Commodities are influenced by global supply and demand factors, which can create significant price fluctuations and dislocations. Our commodities team is available to assist investors in analysing these dynamics and structuring products around a particular market view.


Adding uncorrelated alternate assets such as commodities to a portfolio can help improve risk-adjusted returns as they typically perform differently under various market conditions.
