TOCOM, SMX Sign MOU To Advance Derivatives Trading Landscape

Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) and pan-Asian multi-product global commodity derivatives platform, Singapore Mercantile Exchange (SMX), have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore co-operation and partnership mutually beneficial for both exchanges and market reach expansion.

Under the terms of the MoU, both parties will work together with a view to explore mechanisms to enhance market liquidity and system efficiencies within each exchange, including the joint development of new business opportunities.

Tadashi Ezaki, president and CEO of TOCOM, said: “We wish to work together to improve the trading convenience of both markets by providing risk management tools that meet the needs of investors and traders in the region, which I believe shall contribute to our efforts to firmly position ourselves as a primary derivatives exchange in Asia.”

Thomas McMahon, CEO of SMX, said: “Our MoU with TOCOM falls in line with our long term strategy to be the one-stop comprehensive product-range hub exchange which ties in all physical and derivative commodity players during pan-Asian trading hours.

“SMX and to a good extent Singapore, stands poised to be the central point of contact between all the world’s commodity derivative trading players and the individual pan-Asian markets where fundamentals dictate realistic price discoveries.”
