Belbridge Consulting offer a range of consultancy services tailored to firms which are looking to extend their trading and operational footprints into new markets.
Often firms reach into new markets to recognise commercial gains, although these gains can very quickly be lost through increased risk, operational breaks and manual processing where the requirements to operate in that new space were not fully scoped and understood.
Our expert consultants have many years of hands on experience in the major commodity markets across Europe – along with deep experience of many of the global trade flows including crude oil, refined products, liquefied natural gas (LNG), coal and marine freight.
By working together, we can combine our expertise to ensure that your project teams are aware of the detail and complexities of each new market, and have sufficient knowledge and understanding to develop real, workable solutions which best fit the new markets – without creating manual workaround processes or deviating too far from the existing operational flow.
Some examples of commodity markets we can provide assistance and expertise within are;
- European Physical Power
- European Physical Natural Gas
- Global Liquified Natural Gas (LNG)
- European Emissions Trading Schemes
- European Weather Derivatives
- Global Crude Oil
- Global Refined Products
- Global Natural Gas Liquids (NGL)
- Global Coal
- Global Dry Bulk Marine Freight
- Global Tanker Freight
- Global Container Freight
We can also provide expert assistance in the secondary trading markets, including derivative trading of swaps, options, forwards, futures and other instruments within the exchange traded derivatives (ETD) or over the counter (OTC) markets.
By utilising our knowledge and expertise to supplement your internal project teams, you can be assured that your project requirements and scope have been validated and assessed against the needs of the market – minimising delivery risk and expensive rework and scope change during the later phases of a project.
