I’ve been asked to answer this job application question, just wanted to see what other ideas I can get. Thanks for your help.

What investments could Glencore make to maximize its market position while maintaining a responsible risk profile?

Glencore International AG (management buy out of Marc Rich & Co AG) is a Swiss-based company, which is one of the world’s largest suppliers of commodities and raw materials, and is also among the world’s largest privately held companies.


I came across a similar question in the Trafigura application process. I didn’t have a straight answer because i’m not from an Econ or Fin background so I searched online and peiced information together.


Any luck with the answer?
