Trafigura, the little-known, privately held trading house of raw materials such as oil, coal, iron ore and metals has benefited handsomely from soaring prices for many commodities recently. As such, the company, owned by 600 top employees, saw revenue spike 39% in 2017. While low oil prices pinched last year’s profits, the company is now getting a boost, as prices have changed course. The Swiss company, incorporated in Singapore, has also helped itself in recent years with tighter control of supplies and acquisitions of assets such refineries.
