and Bond is a Commodity Trading and Brokerage House specifically
focussed on the following products;
HMS1 & 2
The company although still in its infancy in
comparison to other companies has proven itself to be a substantial
player within the commodities markets. Our core business is strategically
spread over two sectors;
>> Mining investments
The main commodity areas in which
the company specialises are refined petroleum products (Gas Oil,
Jet Fuel & Fuel Oil), base metals (such as iron ore and copper)
and gold (both doré and bullion). Other commodities such
as diamonds, sugar and HMS1 & 2 are occasionally traded but
not on a regular basis.
Crude Oil Products
The Crude Oil division within the company although the most recent
addition is fast becoming a key driver within the business model.
We have existing relationships in place with producing entities
covering South America and the Middle East and have purchasing
refineries in the European and Asian markets. We are able to transact
in products ranging from Heavy and Sour through to Light and Sweet.
Due to the nature of these transactions
we predominantly only provide this service to clients that have
a proven track record within the crude sector.
Refined Petroleum Products
The oil and gas sector is the most actively traded commodity sector
within the company's portfolio of products as a proactive approach
is taken on a daily basis to secure new clients and to source
additional supply. The trading desk is increasing in numbers showing
us that our perception towards professional and seamless transactions
is fast becoming a proven method. The company implements a very
thorough Due Diligence and vetting process with regard to any
new client before an offer of representation is made ensuring
that clients are fully ready, willing and able to perform upon
acceptance of a transaction proposal.
We act as either Title Holder or
as Broker depending on the offer in question and predominantly
work within the Gas Oil and Jet markets. We are extremely conscious
of providing both our suppliers and purchasing clients with a
Triple A service from commencement of an appointment through to
the continual distribution of product in a seamlessly integrated
We have relationships with refineries,
allocation holders, commercial account holders, trade desks and
brokers within the secondary markets for physical fuel transactions
and have the ability to hedge or offset these contracts into the
futures and options OTC markets such as the New York Mercantile
Most of the Gas OilProducts that we are involved with are sourced
and supplied from either Eastern Europe or the USA. We do however
occasionally engage in transactions within the Middle East to
provide services to our Asian client portfolio.
We cover the following products;
>> Diesel Gas Oil 0.1
>> Euro 2M
>> ULSD/50-10 ppm/EN590
We are fortunate as a company to have access via our trade partners
to reliable products direct from the major suppliers as we are
extremely aware of the importance this commodity plays in the
continual prosperity of international airline companies.
We engage within;
>> Aviation Kerosene Jet
A1 ASTM D1655
>> Aviation Kerosene TS-1 GOST 10227-86
As a main driving force within the Far Eastern markets this commodity
is in high demand throughout the year.
>> Mazut M100 GOST 10585/75
>> HFO ISO 8217
>> 3.0% Sulphur Virgin Fuel Oil
As the most readily available and widely used refined product
we have created a unique relationship enabling us to provide gasoline
in multiple forms including a unique RON 96.
>> RON 87
>> RON 91
>> RON 95
>> RON 96
Base Metal Products
We have a robust network of relationships with both mine owners
and their appointed mandates enabling us to secure and supply
commodities to our purchasing clients at attractive rates with
realistic procedures. We are able to secure commodities from South
America, Africa and the Far East to suit the needs of our international
clientele. Since the company has focussed on securing ‘title’
positions within the fuel market a strict ‘brokerage’
role is now taken on base metals to reduce the company’s
exposure within the market.
We regard to commodity investments
we have created a unique platform to ensure that investments into
mining entities are low risk yet high reward. This platform enables
clients to progress though an investment cycle ensuring that all
parties involved maximise on profitability. Our geographical and
commodity strategic outlook provides clients with a very safe
spread across both product and location ensuring that their portfolio
of activities offers a safe yet strong return on investment.
Through robust and proven contacts we are in the fortunate position
to be able to offer our clients gold in the form of both ‘Bullion’
and ‘Doré’. Our network of associates including
mining entities, central banks, trust funds, hedge funds, governmental
agencies and UHNW individuals ensures that our clients receive
the best possible offers within the market encompassing a wide
variety of procedures that take into consideration multiple financial
and cultural differences.
We have access to other commodity bases such as ICUMSA 45 through
our international network of traders and funds that enable us
to provide services within these alternative commodity sectors.
