About us

Marex Spectron is a world leading commodity broker, covering metals, energy and agricultural products. We are the expert partner and guide for consumers, producers and investors trading global commodity markets, both on or off-exchange.

 

We are a world leading commodity broker because of our unrivalled breadth of commodity market coverage across Energy, Metals and Agricultural products; the depth of our services; the diversified nature of our client base; scalability of our platform; alongside leading proprietary technology, data and analytics offerings.

While other competitors might match Marex Spectron’s offering in one specific commodity category, we are unique in being top ranked across Metals, Energy and Agricultural products.

In Metals, we provide brokerage and market making services for base and precious metals (Aluminium, Copper, Nickel, Zinc, Lead and Gold). We are the leading Ring Dealer on the LME and Number 1 in Copper on the CME.

In Agriculture, we are primarily a broker, but also provide market making in specific option products (Cocoa, Coffee, Sugar and European Grains). 

In Energy, we provide agency brokerage across OTC and Exchange Cleared Contracts with a focus on Fuel Oil, Natural Gas, Iron Ore, Coal, Crude, Light Ends, Environmental and Freight.

Increasingly, we are providing our clients not just with access to market liquidity, and to management of order flow (screen, voice and Direct Market Access), but also data and analysis.  Funds and money managers are ever more reliant on quantitative data to support trading and execution decisions.  To fill the gap in the market resulting from banks scaling back and attract institutional clients, Marex Spectron has invested in “Intelligence” (including proprietary models) and “Content” (quotes, reports, research).  Our NEON platform in Metals and Nanolytics data lead our industry.

Established in 2005, today we operate out of 10 offices globally, with over 500 employees in Europe, North America and Asia. We are deeply embedded in the global commodity market infrastructure, with 35 exchanges in our connectivity networks.  Every day, we clear over a million contracts on exchange and execute over 26 million trades a year for clients.  

We are regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority, which also regulates our Group under consolidated supervision, in the US by the National Futures Association and the US Commodities Futures Trading Commission, in Hong Kong by the Securities and Futures Commission, and in Singapore by the Monetary Authority of Singapore and the International Exchange Singapore.
