DGCX wins major global awards
Dubai, December 17, 2013
Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX) won two major industry honours at the Futures and Options World (FOW) International Awards held in London recently.
It was named the ‘Exchange of the Year 2013’ in the Middle East and Africa and its EOS trader platform was recognised as the ‘Best Technology Innovation by an Exchange’ in Asia, Australasia, Middle East and Africa.
CEO Gary Anderson said: “We are delighted to receive these prestigious global accolades from FOW, which reflect not only the remarkable growth we have witnessed, but also the products, technology and strategic initiatives we introduced to support the trading needs of the region."
The exchange’s product portfolio covers a diverse range of indices, energy, precious metals, base metals and currencies, including the Indian rupee, copper and Sensex futures.
“2013 has been one of the most fruitful years for the exchange with us diversifying our product mix by listing Sensex Futures and launching an advanced technology infrastructure to meet the sophisticated trading requirements of our members,” he stated.
DGCX is expected to launch its plastics futures contract early next year, which will be the first plastics contract to be listed in the Mena region. - TradeArabia News Service
