Hillgrove Secondary School students were very privileged to be invited to Glencore, a multinational trading commodity and mining company, on July 25 for their Phase 2 industrial visit at Temasek Tower.

Ms Yuan Yuan, Head of Analytics team in Glencore, kickstarted with an introduction on Glencore and how the analytics team function. In her talk, she covered some trading concepts, such as buying goods at a low price and selling it at a higher price to make a profit, the different types of oil and their uses and market cycle. It was indeed an enriching session.
