About

The LRI vision and principles:

Our aim is to provide accurate information and robust price assessments, which assist market participants in making sound business and trading decisions, whilst enabling the world’s rice markets to operate with greater transparency and efficiency. In doing so, we hope to equip rice market participants with the tools that they need to better manage their exposure to risk.

 

During the "2008 Rice Price Crisis", exceptionally high rice prices and extreme price volatility caught the attention of rice industry participants and policy?makers worldwide. As the scrutiny of commodity markets increases, transparency and integrity take on heightened importance as the LRI strives to enhance market confidence and efficiency.

Transparency

The LRI’s role is to observe and report on the world’s rice markets, whilst developing increasingly accurate methods for accessing and evaluating rice price information. To build confidence in the rice price assessment process, we aim to make our price assessments and methodology as transparent and robust as possible.

 

Transparency enables rice market participants to identify the true market value of a given rice variety and understand the market forces behind price movements.

Integrity

For the LRI, "price integrity" relates to logical processes when performing price discovery as well as procedures which build confidence in the resulting assessments. The assessment of high quality data, using structured and considered methodologies should ensure increased price integrity and market confidence.

Reliability

We follow a published methodology for each rice price assessment. These dynamic documents are subject to review and amended after thorough consultation with the trade. The LRI does not use any item of information in its rice price assessment process that is inconsistent with its methodology and quality guidelines.

Impartiality

We are not traders or brokers and we will never take a physical or paper position in any rice market. We are independent.

What does the LRI do?

The LRI is a global provider of information on the rice industry and a leading source of benchmark price assessments for rice. Since 2011, the Live Rice Index has provided reliable information and market insights.

The LRI is a subscription-only service which provides differentiated tiers of access to livericeindex.com and the LRI Reports. Visit our why subscribe page for more information on LRI Subscription tiers and our services.
