LONDON and HONG KONG, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sucden Financial has been voted #1 Broker Overall in Base Metals, Asia Pacific 2011 by AsiaRisk, the magazine for risk and derivatives professionals. Sucden Financial's emergence as the premier broker for base metals in the region is a result of the magazine's annual commodity ranking poll. This survey also saw Sucden Financial being named fourth overall for all commodities in the Asia Pacific region. The increasing presence of the firm in Asia, coupled with its strong history and heritage in the commodities sphere, particularly as a leading LME metals broker, have provided the basis for this success.
Michael Overlander, CEO of Sucden Financial, said, "Asia and in particular China has been a key area of growth for Sucden Financial over the last decade. We have a strong market presence and are a well-known and established brand, particularly in the metals market. I am delighted Sucden Financial has been recognised with this award. China remains a key area of focus and we are also raising our efforts to expand throughout the rest of the Asia Pacific region."
