Marex Spectron Expands Working Capital Facility

September 19, 2014

Marex Spectron, the leading global commodities broker, has announced that Bank Leumi (UK) has joined Lloyds Bank in its working capital facility, matching the $25 million originally committed by Lloyds and bringing the total size of the facility to $50 million.

Ian Lowitt, Marex Spectron’s chief financial officer, said: “We are delighted to have Bank Leumi on board. The facility enables us to meet the rising demands of our clients in our core commodity businesses and its success reflects our conservative approach to capital and liquidity management.”

The facility is designed to support the firm’s growth at a time when banks and other competitors are leaving the industry, creating opportunities for Marex Spectron.

Consistent with the announcement of the facility, Bank Leumi (UK) joined through a syndication process led by Lloyds Bank.
