Access worldwide exchange and OTC markets
We're active in base and precious metals, iron ore and steel, offering multiple access points, help, experience and solutions for whatever price risk you face, or liquidity you require. We are a category-one member of the London Metal Exchange and a full member of the London Bullion Market Association.
We execute and clear a significant proportion of the market activity on the London Metal Exchange, the world's largest non-ferrous metals exchange. We also provide direct access to the CME’s base metal futures and options contracts, on its COMEX exchange. We provide services for producers, consumers, fabricators and traders, brokers, financial institutions and hedge funds, as well as investors in the commodity futures and options markets.
We provide futures and options brokerage for industrial users of gold, silver, platinum and palladium, as well as for market makers, brokers, funds and traders, covering all hedging and speculative requirements. We also provide access to OTC forwards, swaps, options and spot contracts through our range of specialist FX services.
Steel and Iron Ore
We provide execution and clearing for cash-settled and physically delivered futures, options and swaps in the steel and iron ore markets, for both exchange and OTC traded contracts.
