CRU in Chile


CRU has been operating in Chile for 10 years, enabling us to provide customers with in-depth market insight on one of the biggest commodity regions in the world. In 2006, CRU opened its office in Santiago and since then, has grown to seven consultants and analysts. Through the combined experience of over 40 years in the mining, metals and fertilizers markets in Latin America, CRU's Santiago team strengthens the analysis presented in our services.

Market Analysis:

With our direct access to producers, consumers and financial institutions plus site visits to key operations across Latin America, our services examine how the mining, metals and fertilizers markets in the region are evolving and what the impact will be on the relevant global industries, particularly copper and steel. CRU has near, medium and long term industry insight to help customers make the best-informed global business decisions.

CRU Consulting:

CRU Consulting provides specialist management consultancy for commodities producers, suppliers, consumers, end users, private equity groups and funds, investment banks and financial institutions. CRU's team in Chile has considerable experience in undertaking work to help Latin American and international organisations to better understand how markets will develop and how they should adapt to optimise their operations.

CRU's consulting work specialises in three areas - business asset valuations, strategy development and negotiation support.

Global conferences and exhibitions:

CRU's conferences and events offer the chance to hear expert global opinion and market insights from CRU analysts and industry experts from around the world, as well as providing unique networking opportunities. Every year, CRU hosts the World Copper Conference in Santiago, Chile, and we co-host the Fertilizer Latino Americano conference.  



“South America and especially Chile, Brazil and Peru are important commodities producers. Having local presence in South America allows us to visit the mines, smelters and processing plants of the main industry players enabling us to have a very good grip on commodities supply data, trends and future.”
