Why use a price reporting agency?
Global metals and mining markets are going through a generational shift. The pull of decarbonization continues to shift raw materials strategies and supply and demand dynamics in favor of more sustainable materials.

The lingering effects of Covid-19 and the war in Ukraine have created unprecedented price volatility, placing immense pressure on contract negotiations. Business as usual is anything but ordinary and the metal markets have become almost impossible to read.

By using a price reporting agency (PRA), you can:
  • Ensure that you have the prices you can use that reflect supply and demand conditions
  • Provide a reference for transactions in exchange-based contracts and trades
  • Give confidence to contract counterparties that the prices used are impartial
  • Improve efficiency when renegotiating contracts
  • Deliver instant and accessible data through an automated platform
  • Ensure trusted, critical short- and mid-term forecasts in a new generation of energy markets
