BPL Global’s headquarters are in London, where the company was founded in 1983. In London, we have the largest broking team in the CPRI market and count amongst our clients many of the world’s leading financial institutions, exporters, commodity traders and corporate investors.
Our Paris office was established in 2001 and is led by Paul Torrington, who has over 30 years’ experience in the CPRI market and has worked with clients throughout Europe, particularly in France, Germany and Italy.
In 2011, we opened a branch office in Hong Kong in response to the growing demand for CPRI in the Asia Pacific region. The following year we established a subsidiary company in Singapore. Peter Gilbert is Chief Executive of BPL Global Singapore and oversees our business across Asia Pacific, where our client base includes the region’s major financial institutions, exporters and commodity traders, as well as the subsidiaries of our multinational clients.
In 2015, we established an office in Dubai, which is located within the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) and is headed-up by Harriet Smith.
2018 marked the opening of our office in New York which was established to provide financial institutions and multinational corporations with a seamless service across the Americas. The office is headed up by John Lavelle.
We also opened our Geneva office in 2018, established to provide local support for our Swiss-based clients and develop new relationships in this globally renowned trading hub. The office is led by Philippine de Villèle, who works closely with commodity traders, banks and exporters.
