As part of its collateral service, members are able to pledge LME Warrants as collateral against their margin requirements. This is a unique offering from LME Clear - the clearing house purpose-built for the metals market

Members wishing to post non-cash collateral including warrants are required to sign additional documentation. Certain formalities (including registration of security interests) may apply before non-cash collateral is accepted and this may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. LME Clear will only accept non-cash collateral from Members where it is satisfied that the arrangements are enforceable without delay in the event of a member default. Members should note there may be a lead time to posting warrants while this is being assessed. Please see here for full details.
