Physical trading is at the heart of Gunvor’s business, with trading offices in Geneva, Singapore, Nassau, Dubai and Shanghai.

Gunvor’s success as a trader of physical energy, metals and bulk commodities  is built upon a foundation of excellence. We combine the core competencies of marketing, logistics, financing, risk management and compliance with the knowledge and insights gained from sustainable supplier and customer relationships.

Leveraging this foundation enables us to identify and realize arbitrage opportunities in the global commodities marketplace:

  • Geographic: Our relationships and logistical capabilities enable us to source physical commodities and deliver them to locations where they command higher prices.
  • Product-based: Through blending or the multi-use petroleum products, we create added value products that command returns higher than the sum of their constituent parts.
  • Time-related: Utilizing our storage assets, financial skills and cost controls we create and realize margins on agreed forward prices.

We have expanded our trading volumes year-on-year in line and our strategic investments in upstream, midstream and downstream assets.
