“We shine the spotlight on talent, dedication and expertise driving commodity business forward,” said This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., Awards Director and Publisher/Editor of Commodities Now magazine.

“Commodity Business remains critical to the world’s requirements to provide food, fuel, shelter and services to a burgeoning population. And the shifting patterns of commodity demand and supply continue to challenge participants as the structures and players in the commodity supply chain develop further,” Isherwood added.

“Since the onset of the Great Recession, these challenges have grown with the new regulatory and reporting requirements being demanded of our industry, as well as the increasing capital costs associated with commodity trading and risk management activities. This is forging a paradigm shift in the roles and relationships between market participants in what has been another transformative year for commodity markets,” Isherwood continued.

“Nevertheless, as western nations pull out of recession and developing world economies re-balance, future prospects for this industry look bright. In our business we have developed market-based mechanisms to achieve desired outcomes and, whilst not perfect, the responsibilities we have to our employers, shareholders and clients should not overshadow our need to develop markets responsibly and ethically.

“Governments, regulators, investors, speculators, traders, manufacturers, consumers – all those with a stake in the commodity industry – rely on those organisations represented here today. They are the best-in-class of the commodity business world.

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