The LME and Hong Kong Futures Exchange (HKFE) offer a reciprocal membership arrangement (RMA) for applicants who already hold a membership or participantship at either one of the Exchanges.

Under the RMA, the LME and HKFE plan to waive their respective first year’s annual subscription and application processing fees for new applicants with an existing membership at either Exchange.

Reciprocal membership of LME and HKFE allows broader access to products on each Exchange, and provides additional liquidity for new products.

For HKFE members wishing to join the LME, this arrangement covers LME categories 1 – 5 and Registered Intermediating Brokers (RIB) memberships.

This arrangement is effective from 29 July 2019 until 29 July 2022.
