Special project

As the futures markets are ever evolving, we keep pace with change and stay ahead of the curve to be at the forefront of market players requirements.

We were the first brokers to facilitate trade on the newly approved TC17 route and remain at the forefront of the TD19. With the assistance of our Houston based physical brokers, we have also been at the forefront of the promotion of the new USG/UKCM Aframax futures.

We are now concentrating our efforts to promote the emerging LPG FFA’s. LPG is one of the fastest growing areas in the markets today. We have a new dedicated LPG shipping desk based in Geneva and we are combining the synergy of physical information with trading partners to promote market depth and liquidity.
