London Metal Exchange CEO Matt Chamberlain welcomed a baby into his household in the days before LME Week – one of the bourse’s busiest times of year – but that was far from the only thing keeping the exchange leader occupied in 2017.

In this video from JLN’s annual series with industry leaders, Chamberlain talks about the LME’s efforts in 2017 to engage with market participants and investors regarding the most appropriate path forward (an unusual, almost philosophical chance to ponder best practices), the iterative process of adding new technological features, and initiatives planned for 2018, including the exchange’s plan to get in on the booming electric car battery metals scene. However, Chamberlain admits that with all of the burdens placed on LME members in 2017, 2018 represents a chance to provide a bit of a reprieve for market participants so they can focus on what they do best – trading metals.
