Ethos

General Index was created on a simple principle – fair access to accurate commodity prices. Prices help everyone decide how to utilise our world’s resources, and the General Index ethos is that those prices should be available and affordable to all. We work in partnership with the energy and commodity industries, and provide long-term price certainty over critical data at a fair cost.  This approach enables firms to dramatically lower their overall spend on pricing data.

New and replacement benchmarks

We provide both new benchmarks to reflect evolving trading patterns and comparable benchmarks to replace high-cost incumbents

Fair access

Our benchmarks are available for a fraction of existing spend, guaranteed for the long-term

 Methodology is code

We use technology running consistent, logical processes to generate its benchmarks, overseen by market experts

Transparent commercial model

We ensure clients only pay for the benchmarks they need, and can use them broadly across the business

No conflict

We only provide benchmarks, and do not produce news, analysis or opinion on the companies it serves

 Partnership with the industry

We work in partnership with the industries we serve, so all parties can share in the benefits of robust, high quality, cost-effective benchmarks
