Gerald Group – Impact Investing

True to its core business for the past 60 years, Gerald Group is an established global trader of metals, a commodity that is becoming irreplaceable in a future of clean technology. The metals and mining industry has been around for half a million years, long before the oil and gas industry. Mining has always been intimately intertwined with human history. From early tools to currencies and spacecraft travelling beyond the solar system, the industry’s products have underpinned human civilisation and progress throughout history. Faced with a future where mass adoption of renewable power and electrification is the way forward, metals and mining will continue to play a crucial role in our world.

Gerald Group – Leveraging expertise and exploring new opportunities

As Extinction Rebellion protests disrupted the bustling tourist spot on Trafalgar Square last October, I met with management of commodity trader Gerald Group at their London office. Gerald Group, one of the world’s oldest commodity trading companies, with a global footprint from Stamford to Shanghai, has its origins as a copper merchant. With a trading philosophy embedded in its most valued employees from the days of founder Gerald Lennard, nearly six decades on, Gerald has evolved to become the largest independent, employee-owned metals merchant in the world.

The Group is actively exploring new opportunities leveraging on decades of experience, and investing in new metal merchant transactions, from prepayments to new mining projects. Gerald plays a vital role in ensuring that global industries have a steady supply of responsibly sourced raw materials. The Group sources, store, processes, and transports ferrous, non-ferrous and precious metals, concentrates, and other raw materials, which are then consumed in our everyday lives in an infinite range of products.
