Indian-Commodity  :  Corporate  :  MCX, Thomson Reuters launch iCOMDEX

MCX, Thomson Reuters launch iCOMDEX (26-Sep-2017)

Multi Commodity Exchange of India (MCX) and Thomson Reuters have launched their co-branded commodity index series, Thomson Reuters-MCX India Commodity Indices (iCOMDEX), tracking the performance of commodities listed on MCX. With the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) beginning to open up commodities derivatives to institutional investors, relevant investors will be able to leverage these indices not only to benchmark performance but to also build products. Commodity index-based products would allow market participants to trade and invest in commodities on a short and long term basis.

The Thomson Reuters-MCX iCOMDEX series, utilize a similar methodology to other established commodity indices used by international investors, such as the popular Thomson Reuters/CoreCommodity CRB index. MCX has worked with the Indian investors to ensure the new indices correctly represent Indian commodity markets, with Thomson Reuters validating this approach and ensuring the indices meet international standards such as the IOSCO principles for financial benchmarks.

The series include a composite index consisting of 11 commodities; sector indices for bullion and base metals, and individual commodity indices for gold, copper and crude oil. These indices have been designed to be tracked by derivatives and exchange traded funds, to allow investors to monetize views and manage investment risk. As a part of the arrangement, Thomson Reuters will calculate and administer the indices, which would track the commodity futures prices traded on MCX, with MCX advising Thomson Reuters on index methodology and ensuring that it best meets the needs of Indian investors looking to increase their exposure to this asset class.
