Typical examples of commercial utilization of PIX are:
PIX as market reference price in price risk hedging instruments
These services are provided by banks and other financial institutions and Exchanges. A buyer/seller of e.g. pulp desires to lock in a certain price level for a certain amount of pulp for a certain period. Any bank, or equivalent, or an Exchange, considering offering such services with a PIX index as the market reference price, is obliged to contact FOEX Indexes Ltd for a License Agreement.
Linking pulp or paper supply contract prices to PIX
Buyers and sellers of pulp, paper, paperboard or recovered paper, as well as wood pellets and biomass may use a PIX index as a market reference price for their supply contract price. This commercial use of PIX requires a License Agreement.
