Conrad Partners

Established in 2010, Conrad Partners provides commodity marketing agency and investment advisory services to the resources sector. Its partners have extensive marketing and trading knowledge gained through hands-on experience at Glencore, BHP Billiton, Newmont, Barrick, Normandy, Placer Dome and various other mining and trading houses.

About Us

Our services cover the full spectrum of commodity sales and marketing, including marketing strategy and design, hedge design, contract drafting and negotiation, logistics and shipping, counterparty performance analysis and optimisation, and complete management of traffic and back office services.

We provide a premium marketing agency service, catering both to miners who lack the internal capability to extract maximum revenue from the marketing process, as well as to miners who are well resourced, but need an external resource to handle a specialist need. We tailor our services specifically to meet your requirements.

Conrad currently supplies marketing and advisory services across a range of commodities, including:

  • Copper, zinc, lead and precious metal concentrates
  • Copper cathode, blister and cement
  • Copper and other base metal ores
  • Precious metal
  • Tungsten, kaolin, zircon and other industrial minerals
  • Coal and energy products

These services are provided from our teams in Beijing and Manila to clients from Australia, the EU, United States, Mexico, Canada, Central Asia, Africa, Singapore, the Philippines, Peru and Chile.

Our clients range from Fortune 500 multinationals, to mid-tier mining corporations and private companies.
