CPM Group provides high-level policy analyses and advisory services, ranging from regulatory issues to the normative role of gold in monetary reserves, policies related to attracting foreign direct investment in natural resource projects, project financing for energy and mining projects, procurement and hedging programs, and a vast array of client-specific consulting programs on commodities related issues. CPM Group has written extensively about government policies related to commodities, including ground-breaking papers for the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations, and others on the myth of the ‘natural resource curse’ on national economic development and the provision of commodities price risk management programs for small agricultural and mineral producers in developing countries remote from international markets. CPM’s advisory team has been involved with assisting government related entities for over the past four decades.
