Commodity Trading


We operate across the world and specialising in exports to Africa and the Middle East. Our principal customers are Trade & Commodity Finance teams for international banks who finance imports and exports of commodities in Africa and the Middle East.

We also work for corporates and trade houses involved in commodity flows. Normal deal sizes are in the $1 – $30 million range for one year revolving facilities. HP Kapital acts as a “Collateral Manager”, offering a range of services that are ‘risk mitigants’ for each transaction.

We are the ‘ears and eyes’ for our customers on the ground covering:

  • Monitoring of goods to and from a port
  • Warehouse / tank farm receipts that enable product to be ‘pledged’ to a bank / lender
  • Stock reporting
  • Release mechanisms for the bank when the borrower makes payments
  • We are a UK company with an operational footprint established through many representatives all over the world.
