where we do it.....
The Company 'Prop Trading' activities are located at our offices at London Southend Airport but the physical trading activities lead us to every corner of the globe,
Like all international brokerage houses 'Mayfair and Bond' started out targeting one specific region which at the time was Latin America. As these commodities were being traded into the Asia Pacific region, through corporate evolution a new client portfolio was created. Sellers in Latin America and Buyers in Asia Pacific were the general business model of the company. The demand for multiple product bases from the Asia Pacific region forced the company to secure alternative suppliers to assist in the growth of the business model. This is when the EMEA markets came into the equation and to this date, a robust trading platform has been created between the three geographical regions.
The American market has for many years been a self-sufficient entity with large oil reserves spread across both Northern and Southern Regions. Gasoline has been the product of choice for vehicles until recent years whereas more efficient alternatives have been gradually introduced into the market.
South America as a whole has been a fast-growing economy over the last decade and a multitude of commodities from oil to sugar plus base metals have placed them in the position of being a serious component within the global industrial revolution.
The European market is dominated by Companies such as Gazprom, Rosneft and BP that supply a complete portfolio of products to the entire planet. This in addition to a wide range of Trade Houses such as Vitol, Glencore and Trafigura means that the European market is probably the most competitive of them all.
The UK's Brent Crude Oil is the Global Benchmark for all Crude Oils and along with the American WTI they are traded very heavily on the International Derivatives Exchanges.
The Middle Eastern markets are also a strong source of supply for our Company. With National Oil Companies such as ADNOC and ENOC generating huge supply capabilities, there is an immense opportunity for exportation to international jurisdictions that have large demands.
The geographical location of these Refineries and Loading Ports ensures ease of delivery to our clients in both the European and Asia Pacific markets. This is a key aspect in enabling us to provide competitive pricing within the Global Market.
The industrial revolution within the Asia Pacific Region that we have seen over the last decade has shown the World what a large appetite for fossil fuels this part of the Globe now has. China has been the largest consumer of commodities and their hunger for products such as Fuel Oil appears to never diminish.
India has also been a key player in this vast consumer market and we are now seeing entities such as Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia following suit.
We offer products to the Aisa Pacific markets on a Carriage Insurance Freight basis from the Middle Eastern Region although some products are sourced from the US Gulf Coast and are shipped via the Panama Canal.
