Commodities

African economies are heavily based upon natural resources and agriculture, and depending on imports for almost everything except a relatively limited range of such export commodities. We have regularly obtained requests to support partners seeking to buy or sell commodities, mostly related to mining, energy or agriculture.

During the past two years, TL Management GmbH has started to pursue such opportunities more actively and to build a network of reliable partners and extending beyond a few African countries.

Firms offering to buy or sell commodities, or brokers offering introductions to such firms, very often cannot hold what they promise. We therefore take a very conservative view as to who we will cooperate with.

As a general rule, offers from third parties (unless major and well known actors) will only be considered when backed up with verifiable references, or through partners who we already know.

We are not buying or selling ourselves, we only act as intermediary between buyers and sellers.
