Bullion Capital, the world’s leading membership-based exchange for the trade of physical gold, silver and platinum, today announced that following the recent SNB events, they have experienced record expansion levels and predict a surge in physical gold acquisition and trading in 2015.
Since the beginning of the year Bullion Capital has had thirty brokers join its institutional membership base, in particular online Forex, CFD and equity brokers who want to spread risk for their clients with access to trade on live prices for physical precious metals in multiple global locations.
Bullion Capital has an established user base of IBs, wealth managers and bullion dealers. Access to their exchange enables clients to diversify their portfolios into physical allocated precious metals and benefit from the resulting positive risk to return ratio.* The electronic Vault Warrant (eVW) technology also allows a broker to monetize the value of their clients’ bullion holdings by using the bullion as margin collateral.
Commenting on the growth, Tom Coughlin, Bullion Capital CEO said: “The recent SNB events have been a catalyst for record numbers of brokers joining Bullion Capital. They are keen to broaden their portfolio and increase their revenue streams by offering offer physical bullion alongside traditional investment, Forex and CFD products – a proven strategy for migrating risk.

We are delighted with this record uptake and see it as a clear indication of a surge in gold activity in 2015.”
