The Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX), Middle East’s largest digital marketplace has signed an agreement with FinMet Pte Limited as it plans to present new gold products to its current precious metals’ product collection.
Finmet’s innovative service platform deploys technology to deliver customised solutions for stakeholders across the precious metals industry. FinMet offers trading, financing, logistics, and risk management solutions across the metals industry to producers, traders, financiers and refiners. FinMet would review with DGCX the physical bullion market to identify opportunities across global markets as part of the agreement. FinMet would support DGCX to offer the product structure to new members and onboard banks that are seeking diversity in products for their business requirements.
FinMet would help with educating market participants and raising awareness of new DGCX gold trading products that would be launched next month in addition to the coordination of product introductions. The Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange intends to unveil new Physical Gold Futures and Spot Gold Contracts, expanding its existing product offering.
The initiation of these gold trading products would give traders admittance to short term capital whilst the bank receives gold as collateral. This allows banks to lend with assurance, while the DGCX Clearing house acts as the central counterparty to all transactions.

Mr Pramod Mohan, Co-Founder and Managing Director of FinMet, said that at FinMet the firm is excited to be a catalyst in this development of the UAE bullion market, which genuinely moves the needle for institutional and corporate participants. The agreement fulfils an ever-growing need for pricing, hedging and liquidity for the UAE Gold Delivery Bars. With the recent signing of the UAE-India Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA), DGCX can now play a role in expediting the effortless acceleration of trading volumes between the two countries.
DGCX’s partnership with FinMet would help with the unveiling of the new gold products and would support their objective of offering traders from across the globe to trade a comprehensive selection of innovative derivatives that support their business requirements.
