Several of our team have used Brady solutions previously which gives us confidence in Brady’s ability to deliver, particularly in the nuances involved in the area of ensuring that concentrates trades are documented and measured reliably to enable efficient management of the single/multiple purchase and sale contracts and the associated hedge trades”.
