The team provides both voice and electronic futures and options execution and clearing for clients trading metals and other industrial commodities, including energy. They also provide services for softs and agriculturals, FX and other financial markets.
The team works for producers, consumers, fabricators and traders, financial institutions and hedge funds, as well as investors in the commodity futures and options markets. Skills and experience range from open-outcry trading floors, commodity brokerages and banks, to operations and support roles. Given the nature and complexity of the markets, particularly the London Metal Exchange (LME), the desk provides additional liquidity, also enhanced by direct access to our ring team.
With the extraordinary industrial and financial market growth in China and surrounding regions, we have expanded our footprint in Asia. Today we have arguably the largest team of Chinese-speaking LME specialists in London, supported by experts at our Hong Kong subsidiary, ensuring round-the-clock support and essential local knowledge. We now serve a wide range of clients with differing needs, from those looking to fix and protect against commodity price risks, to financial institutions looking to access a wide range of financial instruments.
We have a strong history of dealing with a wide range of financial institutions, both as clients and as counterparties. This includes banks, proprietary trading firms, hedge funds, pension funds and asset managers. We can customise solutions for execution and clearing, sourcing liquidity, or providing prime brokerage services.
From the outset, we have evolved our solutions and services to meet a wide variety of the need of large corporations, taking care to fully understand their aims and objectives. Our long-term corporate clients take comfort from our capabilities, financial strength and stability, together with the support of the Sucden Group.
