Rapid expansion, repeated M&A activity, global demand, international supply chains, and 24/7 operations have created commodities trading powerhouses, but in its wake has left a legacy of inefficient processes and cumbersome workflows. Multiple business units covering multiple geographies have only limited visibility of their client relationships. Commodities trading regulation changes and clearing requirements have increased demands for transparency at each stage. Managing market, pricing and counterparty risk remain a priority.
These maturing businesses are looking to rationalise their operations and carve out competitive positions in a rapidly-changing market. Efficiency, transparency and compliance are driving forces, as is the need to implement supply chain and logistics management alongside commodities trading and risk management (CTRM) capabilities.
Baringa works with commodities traders, suppliers, fabricators, consumers and producers. Our commodities experts understand both the end-to-end commodity value chain - from fuel logistics, shipping and storage to price formation, physical trading - and risk management.
We develop business and IT strategies to create more efficient, scalable and responsive organisations, and help clients move towards a target operating model. We lead programme delivery and system implementation, transforming processes, organisational structures and IT systems. With our comprehensive overview of multiple commodities markets, we help our clients turn recent tactical gains into long-term success strategies.
