LCH.Clearnet to clear for HKMEx

According to Roger Liddell, chief executive of LCH.Clearnet, the move should help develop commodities markets in the region: "HKMEx has the potential to be a key turning point in the development of commodities trading in Asia," he says.

LCH.Clearnet provides clearing for the London Metal Exchange (LME) and the New York Stock Exchange's Liffe platform.
