COVERAGE NOTE: Changes to PIX Pellet Continental Coverage – Final Decision

HELSINKI, December 23, 2019 (PIX Bioenergy and Wood Indices) – Fastmarkets FOEX is unifying its methodology and policies for all PIX indices to comply with Fastmarkets’ internal guidelines and the IOSCO principles. Along with this development, some index data collection criteria will not fully fulfil these policy requirements.

As previously announced and following a consultation with no objections to the proposal received, Fastmarkets FOEX will make the following changes to its PIX Pellet Continental Index:

-       Discontinue the PIX Pellet Continental Index on May 6, 2020.

The main rationale for this change is that PIX Pellet Continental includes 3rd party data delivered by industry associations that cannot be linked to individual companies.

Fastmarkets FOEX will publish the last index on May 5, 2020.
