One of the main objectives of this division would be to educate both the corporate and retail participants in detail about the dynamics of the iron ore market globally. The division will also tailor-make effective hedge mechanisms for the physical traders.
“We intend to further expand our sub-broker network to around 225 in the short term period for our derivative division across India,” said Mitesh Rasaikar, chief executive officer (marketing & finance), Maya Iron Ores. “By the end of 2010, we intend to have a significant market share for the multiple commodities which traded in the Indian exchanges.”
