The business is consistently ranked top 3 by many of the specialist surveys in the financial services industry and represents one of the strongest franchises in the market. 

Commodities is responsible for providing risk management, financing, and investor solutions on a range of commodities: from oil, gas, and precious metals. In addition to the full range of over-the counter (OTC) commodity products, the team also works closely with the futures division who offer clients access to all the large commodities exchanges globally.

We aim to have a flat structure that allows you to take on as much responsibility as possible to better prepare them for the goal of covering clients. We expect you to work closely with the Trading team in all aspects of closing a deal from ensuring proper credit appetite to market pricing.
