The team focuses its talents on client order fulfillment rather than on trading for INTL FCStone's own accounts, thereby placing the trade execution needs of customers at the center of its business. They offer customized hedge advisory, market commentary, and award winning outlooks to a myriad of metals market participants.

The Metals Team operates desks in New York, London, Sydney and in the Far East - boasting a network of strategic partners from South America to Northern Europe. With the help of its loyal customers INTL FCStone's Metals Team continues to rank as a top-tier LME broker and have always committed themselves to highest level of personal customer service.

Voters in this category overwhelmingly chose INTL FCStone in the face of strong competition. The judging panel were also suitably impressed, rewarding INTL FCStone with the Commodity Business Award for Excellence in Industrial Metal Markets.

The award was presented to Fred Demler, Global Head of Metals at INTL FCStone by celebrated British comedian Alun Cochrane.
