Digital Inventory and Collateral Management
Our purpose is to bring the benefits of digitisation to the commodities exchange market. In partnership with the world’s leading commodities exchanges, LME and the ICE, we created ICE Guardian and LMEsword, both market renowned software solutions. These have been refined in nearly 10 years of operation and are now available as a modular solution called Sentinel.
Sentinel helps businesses involved in the management, financing and settlement of physical commodities, optimise risk and drive down operating costs, through automation of key processes. It supports a multitude of business processes from the registering of assets using warehouse receipts, warrants or certificates, to the transfer of title which connects producers, storage companies, commodity owners, brokers and financing banks. It has four core modules…
Simplifies process around title transfer and depository management for physical commodities on and off exchange
Rent and grading
Automates many of the manual processes surrounding the physical delivery of commodities
Financing & collateralisation
Unlocks value in physical commodities for short term loans, repos and other structured financing
Assures contract validity and automates allocation and physical delivery or cash settlement with real-time position tracking
How Sentinel is powering LMEshield
Sentinel supports and enables lending against off warrant goods through the efficient secure creation of encrypted electronic receipts. By immobilising paper Sentinel reduces the risk of fraud on financed material. LME use this solution under the name LMEshield.
