Our story

We have been connecting our customers to the global economy for more than two decades. Our business has prospered by questioning the status quo. In the early years, we were one of a few trading firms to challenge the traditional dominance of the big institutions. We developed new markets and helped to redefine the way commodities were traded.

Trafigura is one of the largest participants in today’s marketplace. We have global presence. We invest hundreds of millions of dollars in infrastructure. We are among the market leaders in energy, metals and minerals.

But we've never stopped questioning. These are fast-changing, fluid markets.  We keep one step ahead by staying nimble and curious.
