Decade of Firsts:
FIS has enjoyed dominant market share for freight, iron ore, coking coal, steel and fertilizer derivatives outside China for the last decade. We were named No.1 bulk commodity broker by SGX for 9 years running, being award the top broker overall for bulk commodities by the Exchange.
We pioneered the development of iron ore, FFA options, coking coal, cobalt, lithium and container markets. FIS was the first brokerage to arrange deals in the new 0.5% Sulphur content fuel contracts on SGX and CME exchanges, and continues to drive innovation across commodity markets.
Faster and more transparent markets, and the increasing sophistication of models and algorithms have driven a large demand for real-time pricing data as well as historical data sets. FIS has answered this need with a comprehensive suite of data services, available across multiple platforms.
