HB Warehouse Receipts allow our clients to readily finance their physical metal and commodity stocks that are stored in our global network of Henry Bath warehouses
LMEshield is the new central electronic register for the efficient and secure creation and transfer of off-warrant warehouse receipts. LMEshield Receipts, issued under licence by Henry Bath, allow our clients to facilitate effective collateral management through tracking the underlying commodity, recording its financing status and accelerating the financing process. LMEshield reduces risks related to document fraud and provides auditable functionality for formal electronic transfers of commodities.
Our heritage as a founder member of the LME - issuer of the first ever LME Warrant in 1883 and first LMEShield Receipt in 2016 – is backed up with best-in-class security, safety and operational risk management controls.

Shorter turn-around time for issuing and cancelling documents
Our Certificates can be issued and cancelled for clients securely at any of our regional issuing offices around the world for stock held at any of our global storage facilities (including our Group company CMST/Zhongchu facilities in mainland China). This flexibility gives HB Certificate holders the competitive advantage of a quicker document turnaround time, a shorter pricing gap, and international time-zone convenience.
We understand that you want to move quickly to take market opportunities. That’s why we offer clients greater optionality and logistics services across all of the major physical commodity Exchanges as well as off-Exchange bonded and non-bonded storage.
