LME Discussion Paper Q&A: Margin methodology

Presented by

Keti Tano and Matt Wade

About this talk

Please note, this is the rescheduled version of the webinar from Monday 1 March. This webinar provides an overview of the margin methodology proposals and what impact a change to this methodology may have on the LME market. We will be looking both at the key potential benefits of switching from our current contingent variation margin (CVM) methodology to a realised variation margin (RVM) methodology for base metal contracts – such as greater standardisation and reduced regulatory costs – as well as the main drawbacks – such as the possible impact on the provision of client credit. We look forward to answering any questions you might have about what these proposals may mean for the market.
