In recognition of its continuous efforts towards the development of the commodity futures market, and offering an effective hedging platform to the commodity stakeholders including base metals and bullion participants, Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd (MCX), India’s No. 1 commodity exchange has been awarded ‘Best Exchange - Bullion & Metals’ by Commodity Participants Association of India (CPAI) at their 5th International Convention themed “Changing Dynamics of Commodity Markets’ held at New Delhi on Saturday, March 18, 2017.
The event brought together experts from across the derivatives industry—a diverse mix of the regulator, exchanges, brokers, corporates, commodity researchers and academia—to discuss key themes and trends that are shaping the commodity sector. Shri Radha Mohan Singh, Hon’ble Union Agriculture Minister; Mr. Santosh Gangwar, Hon’ble MOS for Finance; Mr. Ajay Tyagi, Chairman, SEBI, were present among other dignitaries at the event.
The award was presented to Mr. Mrugank M Paranjape, MD & CEO, MCX by Dr. Saurabh Garg, Joint Secretary (I & C), Ministry of Finance; and Shashank Saksena, Advisor (CM), Ministry of Finance.
MCX continues to traverse the growth path. During 2016–17 (Apr-Feb), the average daily turnover in 2016–17 stood at Rs 22,892 crore, up 5% year-on-year (y-o-y). The major contributors to this growth were base metals and bullion; base metals pitched in with Rs. 6,713 crore (up 13.8% y-o-y), and bullion added Rs. 8,133 crore (up 3.1% y-o-y).
On winning the award Mrugank Paranjape, MD & CEO, MCX, said, “We thank CPAI for bestowing this honour upon us. Given volatile market conditions globally, risk management continues to be more important than ever, and we are pleased to facilitate that for the market participants in India with a wide array of products across bullion, base metals, energy, and agri segments.”
“The Exchange’s leading position is underpinned by strong fundamentals that enable it to capitalise on the emerging opportunities. Going forward, as the largest commodity exchange in India, we endeavor to raise the bar and introduce new products in the near future, to meet the needs of our diverse market participant base”, he stated.
Speaking on the occasion Shiv Kumar Goel, National President, CPAI said, "I congratulate MCX on winning the Best Exchange award under the category Bullion & Base Metals, and for its great work in developing the Indian Commodity Market. I am confident that under MCX’s leadership, India will soon become the price setter in gold and silver.”
