Diverse Physical Properties
& Countless Industrial Uses

The metals market covers an eclectic selection of commodities and is arguably the most international physical commodities market. Whereas base and precious metals markets have been historically concentrated in London, over recent years their global financial centers have shifted to Asia as China and other Asian economies gradually emerged as the dominating consumers of most metals. Our strong clearing partnerships grant us access to all major international markets and allow us to provide our clients with the most relevant investment and hedging solutions.

Serving Clients

Metals have very diverse physical properties and have countless industrial uses. As such, they have become an important input in all consumer and capital goods around us. Irrespective of their belonging to base, ferrous or precious broader categories, all individual metals have become specialist markets, with little to no price correlation one to another. The only one characteristic they probably have in common is an energy intensive and complex refining process which tend to drive an interesting relationship to the energy complex. Whether you are looking to protect your input costs or would like to position for a specific investment theme such as the EV revolution, our team is here to help you navigate these complex markets.

Our Services

The HTS Commodities Division was organized to provide our clients with access to high quality, independent financial products and services over a wide range of business interests. Whether acting as our clients’ advisor or broker, HTS Commodities is always impartial to a specific product, bank or provider.

As an NFA Commodity Trading Advisor and Swap Firm, HTS Commodities can assist its clients in all aspects of implementing a robust hedging program. Our comprehensive services cover all aspects of initial program development, including program feasibility analysis, document negotiation, and counterparty/FCM selection.  Implementation services include trade solicitation, pre-pricing/pricing, and providing fair value opinions, to name a few.

In addition to acting as an advisor for hedging transactions, HTS Commodities specializes in acting as an Introducing Broker for the execution of our clients’ futures, options and over-the-counter derivative positions.  Because we are independent of any FCM or provider, our clients have the opportunity to trade through any of our multiple FCM or provider relationships.

Beyond assisting our clients hedging actual or expected assets, liabilities or other positions, HTS Commodities can help in finding and executing suitable futures, options or over-the-counter strategies meant to enhance and/or diversify qualified clients’ investment portfolios.

HTS Commodities is a leading commodities firm and investment bank, with insights and market intelligence that span a wide range of industry sectors and financial products. Our team of highly experienced advisors, brokers, and strategists ensure that our clients have access to real-time market information, our in-depth global and regional opinions, and technical analysis and the most current trade ideas.

As a leading investment bank, HTS Commodities has extensive experience in advising on and brokering structured financial products solutions that can provide enhanced, multi-asset-type performance to our clients.  Available strategies include a wide variety of “off-the-shelf” products or can be customized to meet an investor’s goals.

A robust hedging or investment program starts with a full understanding of the benefits and risks of available strategies. HTS Commodities has a long history of educating our clients, governing bodies and other financial decision makers about all important aspects of transacting in futures, options and OTC derivatives.

HTS Commodities provides clients with the necessary tools to track and report their commodities hedging and investment activities after trade execution, including mark-to-market (valuation), hedge accounting, hedge/investment performance analysis, and OTC payment verification services, to name a few.
