Singapore Diamond Investment Exchange

The Singapore Diamond Investment Exchange (SDiX), headquartered in Singapore, is the world’s first commodity exchange in physically settled diamonds. The Exchange platform, the first of its kind globally, utilises proven exchange technology to create a marketplace for the global diamond trade. By bringing commodity exchange technology to the diamond market, SDiX is delivering a true price discovery mechanism with increased liquidity, allowing diamonds to be traded as a commodity by the entire investment community.

The Exchange provides a fair, orderly and transparent marketplace for traders and accredited investors to acquire polished diamonds on a global scale, at market prices driven by real time transactional data.

Wholly independent from the diamond industry, SDiX operates in accordance with existing global stock and commodity market regulations. SDiX’s strengths are the cutting-edge trading engine technology that offers both flexibility and performance above other exchanges. SDiX’s technology platform can process over 190,000 orders per second when receiving orders from multiple co-located clients. The central matching engine itself is capable of processing over 500,000 orders per second standalone.

SDiX encompasses the Exchange and the Depository that is built around a robust and scalable ecosystem of Approved Suppliers, Broker Members, Physical Vaults, Custodians, Grading labs, and Settlement Banks.

All diamonds listed on the SDiX are graded by the globally recognized GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and are safe kept under the custodial services of Malca-Amit – a global wealth management logistics company.
