“Having just welcomed the 7 billionth human inhabitant to our planet, success in the development, management and preservation of our natural resource wealth has become all the more prescient. Commodity business has therefore become pivotal to human need, endeavour and prosperity like never before,” said Guy Isherwood, Awards Patron and Publisher/Editor of Commodities Now magazine.

“These Awards recognise and reward talent and excellence throughout the commodity complex ... to those companies making a significant impact on the way commodity business is conducted and recognising those institutions making a positive contribution to the development of markets, client responsibility, and investor satisfaction,” added Isherwood.

Events over the last twelve months have again reminded us of the challenges – and dangers – that forever confront this industry. The MENA uprising; the fallout (political and otherwise) from Fukushima; the unravelling of new financial regulations; the sovereign debt crisis; ... all are, and remain, themes that professionals in this marketplace deal with.

“In our business we have developed market-based mechanisms to achieve desired outcomes. Whilst not perfect, the responsibilities we have to our employers, shareholders and clients should not overshadow our need to develop markets responsibly and ethically.”
