Introduction to Agricultural & Soft Commodities

Imperium Commodity Search have a deep understanding of the global agricultural trading markets, with experience on trading, hedging, operations, logistics and research/analytical roles within the space.

We have serviced clients globally looking to increase their market coverage, expand their trading team or bring their risk management processes in-house, providing futures/options traders to physical trading houses.  Our softs & ags consultants have worked in niche areas of the industry and proven their ability to extract passive talent that sticks.

Our consultants have assisted the growth of budding international dairy businesses and helped coffee traders improve their sustainability platform in countries of origin, as well as identified and sourced leading traders with a proven track record and ability to add to a company’s bottom line. We are confident in our ability to work with both domestic and international trading houses/producers through our strong knowledge of the markets and extensive research/headhunting team. The agricultural market changes all the time – new tariffs, new exchange regulations and increasingly tight margins mean we pride ourselves on remaining plugged into the market and able to read and understand the pressures and strains on your business and respond to them in an agile way.

Our softs & ags consultants are on hand to discuss your business and where we may be able to assist in the next step for your team.

Our core markets on Soft / Agricultural Trading and Brokerage are Singapore, UK, Switzerland, Middle East, USA and Canada.
