Whether as a long term store of value, an object of desire in the form of jewellery or as an indispensable raw material for modern industrial society, precious metals – throughout history and arguably more so today, precious metals raise many questions and pose great challenges to investors and trading companies, precious metal refiners and fabricators, recycling businesses and mine producers.
It follows for all those who deal in precious metals, that questions arise about the mechanisms of the markets and their functions, about price determination and development, about political developments and risks, but increasingly about environmental issues – not mention regulation, compliance and anti-money laundering issues.
Who are the key players, what technologies influence precious metals, how indeed are these metals treated for tax purposes? What has to be taken into account when it comes to storage and transport and how can security and insurance by arranged? Who could be the right partners when it comes to product development and how can we position ourselves strategically correctly as a company or institutional investor? These are all the sorts of questions that occupy the minds of those in our sector.
