Bethan Wilde, the only woman trader on the boisterous floor of the London Metal Exchange, is leaving the City for Hong Kong.
The 29-year-old has been hired by Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing as senior manager of business development and strategy, Bloomberg reports .
Ms Wilde has always said she was immediately accepted on one of the last remaining open outcry trading floors, where traders shout out prices to agree deals in what is called ring trading.
It is called ring trading because the LME uses a "ring" with the traders sitting at fixed points around the circle.
Ms Wilde, who has been a trader on the floor for London-based Metdist Trading, starts her new job in around a month.
The LME, the world’s largest metals marketplace which can trace its history as far back as 1571, was bought by Hong Kong Exchanges for $2.2bn last year.
Hong Kong Exchanges is looking to expand in China and to explore adding LME’s products in Hong Kong.
