Maya Iron Ores Pvt Ltd, one of the pioneers in providing integrated solution for physical deliveries of iron ore, have launched its futures commodity trading division, having received the membership of Indian Commodity Exchange (ICEX).
Maya Iron Ores plans to engage in the first month itself, 90 sub-brokers from across regions but largely from Maharashtra, Gujarat and South India.
“A physical trader that offers an effective hedge mechanism, we are better placed as advisors to corporate and retail investors in a highly volatile market,” said Praveen Kumar V, chairman, Maya Iron Ores. “The iron ore future contract which was launched in the India exchanges (ICEX and MCX) is an important tool for risk management against physical deliveries. ‘Maya’ has identified great potential in this segment and has launched its futures commodity trading divisions.”
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.”
