Since the beginning of this century, we have forged a reputation as pioneers and innovators, tirelessly striving to spearhead and develop new commodity derivatives markets.
We are a leading broker & service provider in freight & commodity derivatives. We have enjoyed dominant market share in dry bulk freight (FFAs), iron ore, coking coal, steel and fertilizer derivatives outside China for the last decade. We were named No. 1 bulk commodity broker by the SGX Exchange for nine years running.
We pioneered the development of iron ore, FFA options, coking coal, cobalt, lithium and container markets. We were the first broker to arrange deals in the 0.5% Sulphur content fuel contracts on SGX and CME exchanges.
Our offices in the US, UK, Dubai, India, Singapore and China provide a 24-hour global network. We’re present in all major markets including SGX, NASDAQ, CME, ICE, EEX, DCE and DME. We hold a license to broker FFAs in RMB via Shanghai Clearing House and act as RIB member of the LME.
