LBMA Trade Data Product Enhancements

Exclusive Lease Loan Deposit Report

In case you missed the announcement in our recent Weekly Members' Newsletter, on 5 October we launched additional LBMA Trade Data enhancements as well as an exclusive Lease Loan Deposit Volume in Percentage Tranche (LLD VIPT) report.

For the first time precious metal market participants will have access to comprehensive daily data covering the over-the-counter (OTC) lease loan deposit market for Gold, Silver, Platinum and Palladium. With a subscription to the market data reports you will now receive an exclusive look into precious metal lease rates, tenors and volumes traded across the OTC markets by LBMA member firms.

Precious Metal Lease Loan trades are OTC instruments utilized by central banks, bullion banks, financial institutions and metal producers. The lease rates are interest rates that borrowers pay to borrow precious metals over a specified time.

The LLD VIPT reports have been available to subscribers via Nasdaq's FTP file delivery service (NASDAQ FDS) from 5 October, 2020.
