The Allocated Bullion Exchange (ABX) is the world’s first electronic institutional allocated physical precious metal bullion exchange. It brings price discovery, institutional trading, clearing, storage and delivery services in one online trading environment via its fully integrated trading platform MetalDesk.
WHAT MAKES THE ABX DIFFERENT TO ANY OTHER EXCHANGE?
What makes the ABX unique is the fact that its range of services cover the entire process of precious metals trading: global pricing, the technology needed to access the exchange, funding and trading, clearing and settlement, and storage and delivery. This way, members of the exchange can offer their clients a fully integrated and seamless process, all through the MetalDesk trading platform.
IS ALL BULLION TRADED ON THE ABX ALLOCATED?
Yes, all bullion traded on the ABX is allocated.
Owning allocated physical bullion means that legal title of your investment is in your own name and thus avoids counterparty risk and is safe in any insolvency scenario. At ABX, the bullion an investor purchases is allocated to them with a Holder Identification Number (HIN). This bullion can be stored in the ABX Vault Network or delivered to the client upon request. As legal title to the metal is held by the client, it does not appear on the balance sheet of either ABX or the vault provider. This is considered to be the safest form of bullion ownership.
WHAT IS METALDESK?
MetalDesk is ABX’s market-leading, web-based trading platform, specifically designed for the trading and inventory management of physical precious metals.
WHAT PRECIOUS METALS PRODUCTS CAN BE TRADED ON METALDESK?
A range of physical gold, silver and platinum bars and coins. The complete product list can be found on our website and in our Quality Assurance Framework.
WHAT IS A POOLED CONTRACT?
A pooled contract allows an investor or trader to gain fractional ownership of a larger bar. ABX’s pooled contracts are 100% backed by physical bullion and legal title still always held by the investor.
CAN I TAKE DELIVERY OF A POOLED CONTRACT & WHAT IS THE MINIMUM DELIVERY QUANTITY?
Yes, you can take delivery of a pooled contract when you own the required quantity. The quantity differs per metal type – the minimum delivery quantity can be found in our Quality Assurance Framework.
