WoodMac, a subsidiary of NASDAQ-listed Verisk, describes itself as a “trusted source of commercial intelligence for the world’s natural resources sector”, while London-based Roskill is a leader in metals and materials supply chain intelligence.
“Combining Roskill’s capabilities with Wood Mackenzie reinforces our ability to provide comprehensive, integrated analysis across the energy, and metals and mining value chain,” WoodMac president Neal Anderson said.
“In particular, Roskill adds market-leading analysis, data, and insight on battery raw materials metals, which are an integral component of the energy transition.”
Roskill managing director Alison Saxby said the combination of the two companies would provide clients with a greater breadth and depth of analysis, data and insight.
“In particular, Wood Mackenzie’s leading coverage of the energy transition will add context and richness to our battery raw materials and electric vehicle products,” she said.
“Over time we will shape new products and services offering you the benefit of our combined data and insight.”
WoodMac announced its global head of chemicals Valerie Purvis would expand her role and become global head of metals and mining, including Roskill.
“Green growth stimulus packages and commitments to net carbon neutrality by many of the major economies and major companies are increasing the pace of the energy transition, with metals and materials being a critical enabler,” she said.
“Integrated, in-depth analysis of the value chain for these metals and materials is crucial to understanding the transition.
“I’d like to welcome the Roskill team as we add to the depth and breadth of the analysis, data and insight we provide for our customers as they evolve.”
