About us

About us


Our goal is to provide buyers and sellers with transparency, transactional efficiency, and a feeling of control. All done through an online trading platform. We’re the only marketplace of PRNs and are recognised by the market and as the price index for PRNs. We launched in 1998, soon after the regulations were introduced, and now trade 1.5 million tonnes each year.

Always treat everyone
as you’d like to be treated

We have a company philosophy that runs throughout the business: ‘Always treat everyone else as you’d like to be treated’. We pride ourselves on being accountable, supporting members proactively, and doing the right thing for them. Over 400 members trust us to do what we say we will. Our word is our bond.
