commodity market or a seasoned professional, we have the trading
tools, services, and unique market insights to assist you with your
investment decisions. We offer discreet and competitive brokerage
services in a variety of commodity markets around the world
specialising in all hard commodities.
We have a proven track record in the trade and negotiation of
commodity transactions in several markets. We bring commodity
investors and producers a transparent way of trading commodities
under our full transactional cycle model. We validate the
authenticity of both suppliers and buyers, outperform industry
standards, and offer proven and validated negotiation experience
resulting in the achievement of an equilibrium position for buyers
WHAT WE DO. WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT
We source proven sellers and buyers through a validation process that
establishes genuine products and offers in the global commodity market.
We source and obtain products directly from the primary producer by-
passing the tertiary sector entirely; this makes us more competitive
than other brokers who must pass on their own broker commission fees. In
short we are the intermediary between the principle buyer and the
principle seller and it is this unique relationship that delivers value
for our clients.
We are also different from other brokers in the market in that we offer
a full transactional cycle broking service meaning we can “add value” on
behalf of both the buyer and seller. We are not “execution only” but
offer technical analysis, pricing point selection and trade management
in the physical commodity markets. You can be assured that we will
always strive to provide you with top quality service, competitive
commission rates and what we feel to be the most timely and pertinent
research available today for the commodity markets.
We have built our business reputation on the premise that an educated
trade is a better trade for all parties concerned. We put the needs of
the client ahead of our own and are dedicated to providing the best
service available in the commodity market by equipping our clients with
the tools to find and exploit value.
We have physical commodities broking expertise and offer in depth market
insight to our client base worldwide. We provide free reporting and news
services covering the global commodity market.
As well as broking services we offer a full transaction cycle education
programme/advisory service. We appreciate that it can be difficult to
find a broker whose primary driver is not the commission they can earn
from you yet we believe that value can be delivered to the client
through advice, to help you understand the potential profit
opportunities as well as the risks involved in today's markets.
WHY INVEST IN COMMODITIES
The biggest reason to invest in commodities right now is confidence.
Markets lack confidence and Central banks are printing money through
quantitive easing to shore up this lack of confidence. Quantitive easing
is storing up an inflationary time bomb and slowly but surely creating
an economic bubble. With inflation, the price of commodities increases.
In other markets, the opposite tends to be true. In the case of
commodities, as costs of goods increase, price of commodities increases
to keep up with demand.
Investors are also purchasing commodities as a “safe haven” trade that
is to say commodities have intrinsic value and hold this value in spite
of rising inflation
Commodities markets are very volatile but it is this volatility that
offers opportunity. If you are not experienced and don’t know the best
times to buy or sell, or if you don’t know how to predict trends and buy
on the wrong side, you can lose money quickly. The fact that Westpier
offers advice as well as execution means that we earn our commission by
making sure you are best positioned to make a return on your investment.
