LONDON (Reuters) - Gunvor Group had its best trading year yet in 2020 after all desks performed well, driven in part by volatility in energy markets triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, though the energy trader sustained significant refining impairments.

The company's gross profits were $1.66 billion, while revenue fell to $50 billion from $75 billion in 2019.
