Why offer physical bullion to your clients
Investors are searching for a precious metal offering; some are going straight to the mints or to the gold shops, others are utilising the economies of scale and trading directly on our physical precious metal exchange through one of our members.
Bullion Capital’s physical precious metal exchange providse an efficient, cost effective, simple and secure means of buying and selling physical precious metal. Previously, the prices and spreads available from gold shops and mints simply meant that physical gold, silver and platinum was not accessible in a way that made it a feasible trading and investment instrument.
Offering physical bullion alongside traditional investments, has already proven to be a very successful strategy for the members who are offering their clients access to trade on our exchange.
In 2004, the launch of the SPDR Gold Trust Exchange Traded Fund (ETF), GLD, addressed the storage, insurance, transport and logistical issues associated with investing in physical precious metals. Whilst this method has been successful in creating an efficient market for gold trading, it has compromised gold’s use as a risk management tool and capital preservation vehicle. ETF’s provide participation in the price movement of precious metals, but this does not constitute ownership. ETF’s are complex investment vehicles with multiple risks built into the underlying mechanics. As Bullion ETFs are derivatives backed by bullion and not outright title ownership of physical bullion, they are exposed to multiple counterparty, geopolitical and jurisdictional risks.
In the years since ETF’s commenced, technology has continued to develop at a rapid pace. The economies of scale and efficiencies created through a global physical precious metal exchange with multiple liquidity provides and participants trading directly has shifted the demand from ETF’s into the physical market.
MetalDesk has been specifically engineered for the trade of physical bullion, allowing a broker, portfolio manager, or end client to trade, store, or take delivery of bullion in just a few clicks.
