In his final year with Shearson he was involved with marketing and client liaison on the LME trading desk. In 2002, MacMillan was appointed minerals strategist with Bache Financial, a category two member of the LME, where he produced research on the LME-traded metals until his departure in September 2006.
Perrine Faye joins the team from AFP News Agency where she held the position of commodities reporter for the past four years, with an emphasis on both the metals as well as the energy markets. In her capacity as metals correspondent Perrine will be spending time at the ringside of the London Metal Exchange from where she will be able to report from the market as it moves.
