Based in the UK, Mtalx was started over 20 years ago by Daniel Goldberg as a niche trading house. Over the years Mtalx has expanded its portfolio. We had the opportunity to interview Ahmad Zarrien, a trader at MTALX, with Martin and Zac joining in the conversation.

What is the role of digital technologies in the raw materials trading sector during this covid19- pandemic?
Having started working in this industry at the start of Covid-19 I have not been able to meet any consumers to develop business, therefore having a platform where I can meet customers and build relationships has been instrumental to my personal growth within the company.
