THE CORE STORY
TEN YEARS OF DELIVERING UNRIVALED COMMODITY MARKET RESEARCH
In January 2009, Lara Smith bought a desk and a laptop and wrote a 185-page in-depth outlook on the lithium market. Although the endeavour was largely a personal challenge, the publication achieved unexpected success.
The report was published to wide acclaim, and companies began to request further commodity market insights. In June of the same year, Lara quit her job and registered Core Consultants; almost ten years on, Core has completed more than 60 market studies on 5 continents and provided insight into over 30 commodity markets.
