Introduction to Commodity Derivatives

Imperium Commodity Search has close relationships with both buy and sell side clients in the commodity derivatives, futures and options space across London, Singapore and the US Markets.  

We have worked with leading IDBs, commodity brokerage shops, clearing houses, prop traders, funds and asset managers on recruiting talented brokers, traders and portfolio managers across all commodity asset classes.  Where we excel is in rapid growth and acquisition of sell side brokers, sales traders and directors; unlike many agencies/headhunters, we cut through the bull and go straight to market to source, identify and tempt successful teams/individuals with a relevant book of business to facilitate successful growth for both our clients and candidates. 

Our consultants have successfully placed brokers in both clearing and execution positions in Dairy, Energy, Financial Products and Agriculture over the last 12 months in the US, London and Singapore.  On the buy side we work closely with our sister brand, FINCO Search, to identify suitable opportunities at asset managers, hedge funds and proprietary trading shops for futures, options and derivative traders & speculators.
