Commodities

Commodities, whether they are in the form of food, metals or energy, are an important part of everyday life. The UK is currently ranked the tenth largest exporter and the fourth-largest importer in the world and the value of its imports have increased in the last five years at an annualised rate of 0.65%. Brexit-related uncertainty is predicted to weigh heavy on the UK economy over the next few years. However, unemployment rates and GDP growth are expected to remain at current levels throughout the transition period, according to a number of economic forecasts.

Overall, commodities were on a mostly sound footing in the first half of 2019. The S&P GSCI returned more than 13% as of June 30, one of the best first six months in recent memory. The S&P GSCI is a composite index of commodities that measures the performance of the commodity market. The index made up of 24 exchange-traded futures contracts covering physical commodities spans five sectors. The sectors in 2019 are energy, industrial metals, precious metals, agriculture, and livestock. Energy was the largest sector at 62.63% of the index. Demand for commodity trading specialists is increasing, with employment for all commodities, securities, and financial services traders and sales agents expected to grow by ten percent between 2014 and 2024.

There are many global trade associations and professional bodies open to individuals and firms that work in commodities. The FIA is the leading global trade organisation for the futures, options and centrally cleared derivatives markets, with offices in London, Brussels, Singapore and Washington, D.C. The ICDA is a non-profit association serving member banks, exchanges, CCPs, traders and FCMs, as well as individuals employed within the global commodities and derivatives industry.

Our UK-based consultants are specialists in their markets, recruiting top talent for organisations across the commodities jobs market throughout the UK and Europe.
