As per the agreement signed this week, Structured Solutions will create new commodity indices based on DGCX commodity prices primarily targeted at the global investment banking and fund industry. The exchange is the first in the region to customize futures prices into indices.
“Indices are valuable financial tools for identifying trends and assessing investment performance. We are pleased to partner Structured Solutions for the development of a series of strategic initiatives and products, including new commodity indices to help manage fund portfolios,”
said Malcolm Wall Morris, Chief Executive Officer of DGCX.
Elaborating on the partnership, Steffen Scheuble, Chief Executive Officer, Structured Solutions, said, “Commodities have emerged as a crucial asset class and economic indicator during the downturn. Investors are not only increasing exposure to this asset class, but also using it to enhance fundamental research and analysis. As DGCX is the first and largest derivatives exchange in the Middle East, its prices and data are invaluable in our development of new commodity index products.”
Services offered by Structured Solutions include conception, development and calculation of indices. The company markets its indices around the world, including the Middle East region, and cooperates with various stock exchanges and index providers in Europe and Asia.
