What We Do

SFA (Oxford) is a world authority on the platinum-group metals market, whilst providing tailored intelligence on numerous other strategic commodities, particularly linked to clean automobility. 

The company is wholly independent and its in-depth market research and integrity is underpinned by extensive consulting from mine to market to recycler, as well as an unrivalled global industry network.

With a team of nine dedicated analysts, who have wide and varied industry expertise and knowledge, each one specialising in a core area of the value chain, as well as many internationally-based associates, we are able to provide our clients with answers to the most difficult questions affecting the future of the industry.

We work with mining companies, OEMs, fabricators, refiners, recyclers, investors and governments, many of whom have remained loyal clients throughout more than a decade in the business.

Apart from our regular market intelligence on the platinum-group metals and other strategic commodities, the backbone of SFA’s business is bespoke consulting. The team works confidentially, often augmenting business planning efforts and assisting with company strategy. Whether it’s an OEM wanting to know the impact of evolving automotive technologies on the market and metal prices, a mining company scheduling shafts or reviewing its labour requirements, investors and miners evaluating projects, recyclers and refineries wanting to extract more value from their business, or investors wanting to quantify price risk, SFA has the know-how to offer confident and independent direction for your strategic decision-making
