Risk Management

Hedge exposure to the cannabis sector

Canada played a central role in the global evolution of the cannabis industry. Progressive legislation and an increasing number of issuers on the TSX and TSXV have been catalysts for the rapid growth of the Canadian options market. 

Building on this success, the Montréal Exchange (MX) partnered with S&P to create a broad-based index which constituents are companies legally operating in their federal jurisdiction, the first of its kind. 

The S&P/MX International Cannabis Index Futures (SMJ) is now available to investors in Canada, the U.S. and around the world to capture new investing opportunities in the cannabis industry.
