Maccom Group is a commodity research company specialising on analysing the global bulk, metal and energy markets. Our research style is predominantly top-down, looking at how the economic, business and investor cycles impact commodity demand, supply and prices. 

We like to keep our research products short and punchy to deliver the key messages to our readers quickly. We produce a wide range of products from timely Commodity Chat comments on market moving events, medium-term Insight Reports and longer-term looking Presentation Packs.


Our commodity coverage spans the base metals (aluminium, copper, nickel, zinc and lead), precious metals (gold, silver platinum and palladium), the bulks (iron ore, coal and bauxite) and energy markets (crude oil and LNG).


Our extensive market experience combined with complete independence from any financial institution allows us to act entirely in the best interest of our readers. As well as our written research products, we can present our analysis directly to our clients by online conferences to face-to-face meetings.
