Matthew Chamberlain is chief executive officer of the London Metal Exchange. He was named to that role on April 21, 2017, after having been the interim chief executive since January 23.[1] He took over from Garry Jones, who retired at 58. At 34, Chamberlain is one of the youngest CEOs in the industry. He was previously chief operating officer and head of strategy.[2][3][4][5]

In January 2022 Chamberlain announced he would step down as LME CEO and join the digital asset custodian Komainu as chief executive at the end of April.[6] However, on April 27 the LME said Chamberlain would stay in his post and not depart at the end of April as expected.[7]

Chamberlain joined the exchange in 2012 as head of business development and led reforms to the warehouse network and initiatives to expand into precious metals trading. In December, he was promoted to chief operating officer after the departure of Stuart Sloan.[8]

Background[edit]

Chamberlain advised Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing (HKEx) on the acquisition of the LME while heading European financial technology coverage at UBS. Previously, he was a founding member of the financial institutions coverage team at Perella Weinberg. He started his career at Citibank.

Education[edit]

Chamberlain holds a masters of arts from Cambridge University.

The LME's Ambitious Tech Revamp - Matt Chamberlain, LME

London Metal Exchange CEO Matt Chamberlain knows that the more than 150-year-old exchange has not been at the front of the pack when it comes to technology, but he also knows that gives it an opportunity to survey what other market participants have done in their markets. The exchange spent 2018 making some structural and technological tweaks but the big lift comes as LME rips out its interconnected “spaghetti” of technology and develops its next market data system using HKEX’s Orion platform as a base. (HKEX owns LME.) In this video from JLN’s Industry Leader Series, Chamberlain talks about straddling the line between being a monthly futures market and a daily forwards market all while building out this next iteration of exchange technology.

Staying the (New) Course - Matt Chamberlain, LME

London Metal Exchange CEO Matt Chamberlain welcomed a baby into his household in the days before LME Week - one of the bourse’s busiest times of year - but that was far from the only thing keeping the exchange leader occupied in 2017.
