and Bond is a Commodity Trading and Brokerage House specifically
focussed on the following products;
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;
The main commodity areas in which
the company specialises are refined petroleum products (Gas Oil,
Jet Fuel & Fuel Oil), and Enhanced Methanol Gasoline (EMG96).
Other commodities such as base metals (iron ore and copper), HMS1
& 2 and sugar (ICUMSA 45) are occasionally traded but not
on a regular basis.
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 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;
Gas Oil 0.1 GOST 305-82
>> 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
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.
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.
