Metal Indices

South African Engineers’ and Founders’ Association

19 April 2018

Argus Metal Prices provides global coverage of the metals industry featuring a comprehensive array of daily price assessments, as well as detailed analysis. They are interested in entering into a partnership with us to provide metal price indices and analysis of the metal industry to the membership.
There are two subscription models that we are reviewing: either the Association is licenced and this market information will be available on the members’ portal or each company takes out a subscription with Argus Metals at a subsidised fee. The more feedback received from the membership will enable an informed decision to be made, so that the appropriate solution can be tailored to the needs of the membership.
Three services have been detailed below and if your business is interested in receiving the particular information contained in any of the links, please let Charlene know by 30th April 2018.
The sample reports should give you a good idea as to the content provided.
