Rufus Davis and Zack Goldberg founded Meads Bay Trade, LLC at the start of 2013 to facilitate direct physical commodity transactions. We focus on commodities such as iron ore, coal, copper, zinc, silver, and lead. We work to secure practical volumes of high quality, reliable commodity supply, and on the buy side engage entities such as global investment banks, trading houses, and end users. We partner with well-vetted individuals and institutions with long-term, established records.

Previously, Rufus held the title of Senior Vice President at Turtle Bay Capital, a boutique merchant bank based in NYC with a focus on Latin America. Rufus led the firm’s expansion into physical commodities finance and brokerage. Zack was with Bear Stearns for nearly 14 years as a Managing Director in Institutional Equity Sales. More recently he held a senior business development position within a company that provides securities class action recovery for hedge funds.
