Physically-settled contracts

Physically-settled LME Aluminium Premiums are contracts designed specifically to help the physical industry hedge the premium portion of the “all-in” aluminium price.

There are four physically settled premium contracts:

  • LME Aluminium US Premium
  • LME Aluminium West-Europe Premium
  • LME Aluminium East-Asia Premium
  • LME Aluminium South-East Asia Premium

They sit alongside our parent LME Aluminium contract as well as US Midwest and European cash-settled variants, combining global liquidity with regional flexibility.

The physically-settled contracts provide a transparent, supply-and-demand-driven premium price discovery mechanism. Participants can also take delivery of readily available material in non-queued warehouses.
