    commodities covered

  • A European bank wanted to initiate research coverage on commodities to provide market outlook to clients. The project entailed conducting fundamental research on commodities.
  • The client was looking for a vendor that could cover multiple commodities. They wanted to start the engagement with one commodity to assess the quality of service delivery.
  • Acuity Knowledge Partners deployed a team of two techno-fundamental research analysts with deep knowledge of the commodity market and expertise in writing research reports.
  • The team started the engagement with energy commodities and later expanded the coverage to other sectors, including metals and agricultural commodities.
  • Acuity helped the client access data sources, create and maintain a database, and prepare data-driven insights on the market.
  • Acuity is helping the team prepare daily/weekly market reports, build largely automated dashboards for a quick overview of the market, write more in-depth research reports on specific commodities, and create presentations for client meetings and conferences.
