SmarterMarkets™ Presents brings you exclusive interviews from the FT Commodities Global Summit 2024.

SmarterMarkets™ was back at the annual Financial Times Commodities Global Summit in Lausanne, Switzerland this April, where the conversation focused on how the commodities traders and markets are navigating the new commodities world order.

We partnered with the FT to interview a wide-range of market participants to ask them how the big developments being discussed at the conference this year – including the pressures from the energy transition, technological innovations like AI, war and geopolitics, changing government regulations, and the end of easy money – were affecting the commodities trading landscape and the way that trading was getting done.

We also asked them to describe the ways that markets and market infrastructure need to adapt and evolve to keep pace with the changing trading landscape and what new tools and technologies would be most useful to their businesses.
