CME Eyes China, India in Hunt for Higher-Margin Derivatives

  • Group plans to offer CSI 300 Index futures outside China
  • CME picks MCX for potential commodities joint venture in India

CME Group Inc., the world’s largest futures market, is targeting China and India as it scours the globe for higher-margin products to sustain recent profit growth.

The firm, which toppled Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Ltd. as the biggest exchange operator earlier this year, will offer futures on Asian equity indexes and commodities as both China and India open their markets to foreigners.
