Types of membership
Full membership of LBMA is available to companies in the UK and abroad. All Members must be operational in areas that are closely linked to the London bullion market.
Market Making Membership
Market Makers have the same rights as full Members but must quote bid and offer prices to each other during the London business day, for agreed minimum quantities and tenors.
LBMA has over 146 Member companies across more than 20 countries: financial institutions and mining, refining, transportation, trading, vaulting and manufacturing companies. Joining the LBMA provides a seat at the table of an internationally respected body and offers wide-ranging benefits.
LBMA Members and Subscribers gain insight and help shape future direction. They get access to specialist knowledge, resources and advice. They help raise standards and develop the market. And they grow their networks with knowledge, contacts and expertise.
