Michael Overlander, CEO at Sucden Financial confirmed the appointment adding, “We are delighted to have secured the services of Chris Adams, who undoubtedly has always demonstrated his unique understanding of the workings of the LME and who is one of the market’s most accomplished base metal traders. The appointment underlines our commitment to the future of the exchange and the Ring.”

Ashley Levett, CEO at Levmet offered generous praise to both Sucden Financial and Chris Adams saying, “We are pleased for Chris and respect his decision to return to London for personal reasons. Given his desire I believe this can only be seen as a positive move for him, our good friends at Sucden Financial and the exchange at large”.
