Trading is the engine of our business and energy in all manner of physical forms is the resource that we trade the most. More than simply a thread linking every aspect of what we do, trading is the conduit through which we receive and share vital market information, maintain the balance and flow of our liquidity and forge lasting, rewarding relationships with customers all over the world.
We identify imbalances between supply and demand and we act quickly and safely to restore the equilibrium. We move energy from where it is sourced and stored to where it is needed.
We are not speculators on absolute price movements. Further, we do not expose ourselves or our customers to unnecessary risks. Rather, we use our worldwide reach, local understanding and experience to anticipate change, marshal resources and deliver innovative, effective and reliable logistics and solutions.
Our principal responsibility is to our customers; we are able to think quickly and strategically and act decisively. The KEYSTONE GROUP is a broadly based company constructed of complementary businesses. We have the systems, people and flexibility to make intelligent connections, optimize economies of scale and create external partnerships every bit as enduring and open as their internal counterparts.
We take pride in our ability to take on difficult, complex projects and deliver effective solutions, quickly and transparently. As our partnership model is based on collective responsibility, we carefully assess risk exposure on the ground, in local markets. It is there that we see the real relationship between cause and effect. We don’t make decisions on theoretical modelling or mathematical abstractions. With 48 ship voyages in 2014 and over 15 ships at sea at any given time, the KEYSTONE GROUP is by any definition a physical trader.
