LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, 1 OCTOBER 2018 – Metal Bulletin Group, the price reporting agency (PRA) within Euromoney Institutional Investor PLC, today announced the rebrand of the business to Fastmarkets. This includes PRA brands formerly known as Metal Bulletin (now Fastmarkets MB), American Metal Market (now Fastmarkets AMM), Industrial Minerals (now Fastmarkets IM) and Scrap Price Bulletin (now Fastmarkets SPB). In early 2019, forest product industry leaders RISI and FOEX will rebrand as Fastmarkets RISI & Fastmarkets FOEX respectively. Fastmarkets advances the Company’s vision to be a single, definitive source for trusted commodities data.

“As we look to the future, our plan is to transform our various products into one definitive source for all commodities data. We are creating a new, stronger brand to deliver even more value and benefits to our customers involved in the buying and selling of commodities across the markets we serve,” said Raju Daswani, CEO, Fastmarkets.
Fastmarkets’ new branding enables the company to stand out within the dynamic global commodities marketplace.
“Our aim is to invest in the products, tools and services tailored specifically to the needs of our customers,” Daswani said. “We took this opportunity to rethink not just our name but our entire brand proposition. We are proud to be ahead of the curve in a rapidly evolving industry, and our new identity as Fastmarkets illustrates the great progress we have made in recent years.”
The Fastmarkets branding provides a sharp visual identity that matches the Company’s strategic focus on being bold, smart and unique in how it assesses commodity prices.
