Speaker Bio
Ash Lazenby is a senior cobalt trader at Glencore, based in New York. Glencore is a leading producer and marketer of cobalt, and Ash’s coverage spans the global market with a particular focus on North America including sales of cobalt into the rapidly developing electric vehicle supply chain and other critical sectors such as aerospace. Glencore’s asset and marketing presence spans the suite of critical metals for electric vehicles, producing from both primary raw material and recycling sources, while activities include marketing/trading the associated products and an extensive portfolio of 3rd party metals. Given the cross commodity dependency of the electric vehicle build-out, Ash works closely with colleagues across the battery metals and recycling teams, including collaboration that promotes new sources of primary and recycled battery metals from internal and 3rd party sources.

Prior to Glencore, Ash worked in various equity research and investment banking roles within the natural resources sector. He holds a Masters in Physics from Oxford University.
