09:00-09:15 Introduction to the LME
Speaker: Catherine MARKEY, Head of Education and Marketing, London Metal Exchange
09:15-12:30 A Day in the Life of the LME
Even before a new mine starts production, the LME is playing a vital role in the management of its future metal price risk. It’s the same at the other end of the supply chain where new cars roll off a production line. In between are the trading companies, the logistics specialists, the shipping companies. In each section, a major market presence explains how they use the LME to manage price uncertainty. Each workshop offers an expert snapshot of hedging best practice from those who really know the subject matter – the companies who do it.
