Marex Spectron Launches Physical Sugar Broking

January 5, 2015

The new service will be offered in conjunction with MB Trading, which will act as agent for Marex Spectron. While Marex Spectron is one of Europe’s leading brokers of agricultural derivatives, this will be its first brokerage service in physical Agricultural products.

Jonathan Parkman, Joint Head of Agriculture at Marex Spectron, said: “Our significant market share in sugar derivatives means that we know these products and we know what those who trade them need from a broker. Combining our financial strength, reach and knowledge with the vast experience in the sugar markets of Mark Bullock of MB Trading creates, we firmly believe, a truly compelling offering.”

The new physical broking service is live now and will operate primarily through desks in London and Paris.
