DGCX launches derivatives trading academy.

Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX) has launched the DGCX Academy, an educational initiative aimed at extending the benefits of derivatives trading to the wider business and investment community in the Middle East.

The first such initiative in the region, the Academy seeks to empower the community with the knowledge and skills needed to use derivatives as effective investment and risk management tools. The DGCX Academy will offer seminars, webinars and certification courses aimed at two different sets of audiences - novice traders and retail investors seeking to further leverage the investment potential of derivatives; and businesses, corporates and institutions looking for effective hedging tools to manage currency and commodity risk.

Samir Shah, Chief Business Officer of DGCX said, "In the current economic environment, we believe derivatives can play a vital role in supporting business stability in the regional market. At a time when traditional asset classes like equity and real estate are under pressure, derivatives provide a very attractive alternative investment opportunity. At the same time, derivatives provide vital hedging tools for managing the high levels of commodity price and exchange rate risk
