Global Commodities

    „The Global Commodities portfolio provides clients with products to manage or take risk on a range of internationally traded commodities. With worldwide distribution through our network of clearing firm and broker partners we can offer the benefits of trading on EEX and clearing at ECC to a global client base.“

    Richard Heath, EEX Business Development

    Supporting our customers on a global level

    Commodity markets are global in character and interconnected both intra-regionally and within supply chains. The nature of the global commodities trade means that organisations with exposure to these markets are generally active in a large number of products rather than focusing on a single asset class. Today, these organisations no longer want exchanges to specialise in a single product set but rather they favour a much broader range of trading possibilities in a single marketplace.

    EEX Group launched our Global Commodities business in 2014 to support and enable our customers to trade and clear a broader portfolio of products from a global perspective.


    Seaborne trade in bulk commodities remains the backbone of globalisation with more than 11 billion tonnes of cargo carried annually.



    LNG is a fast-growing global commodity; total exports have increased by over 25% in the last 4 years and over 50% of worldwide natural gas is now traded as LNG.
