Platform reaches figure just weeks after 10-ton mark reported in June
LONDON and SINGAPORE, Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- INTL FCStone Ltd (the "Company") today announced that its Precious Metals Division's web-based physical gold trading platform, PMXecute+, has more than tripled the amount of gold traded since it last reported figures in June.
Since its launch in February, 39 tons of gold – over 1.2 million ounces representing in excess of $1.6 Billion in value – have been traded on the platform, more than three times the 10-ton figure reported in June.
Barry Canham, CEO of INTL FCStone Commodities DMCC and Global Head of the Precious Metals Division, commented on today's news, "We are thrilled to report tremendous growth for PMXecute+ and look forward to continued expansion within the marketplace. PMXecute+ is proving to be a valuable resource for gold traders and we look forward to the platform facilitating greater opportunities for market participants over the long term."
The Company's focus since launch has been to ensure wider liquidity on the platform, progressively increasing the number of trading counterparties. With over 1500 locations and shipping routes available, and a diversified gold inventory, the platform can be used as a strategic tool to reach a bigger market and identify new opportunities through just one relationship. Efforts will continue over the next few months to onboard more users and enrich the PMXecute+ value proposition.
The platform allows customers access to INTL's entire global inventory and network of trusted supply partners — helping customers find the best offers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Customers who do not see offers meeting their specific requirements (regarding quantity, specification or location) can use the platform's Request for Quote function, which notifies all relevant suppliers around the world. Suppliers can anonymously create firm or indicative offers (premium, location, expiry date) on the platform for all customers to view and, if they like what they see, trade on, thus seamlessly securing gold at a premium and a location they want. The platform even allows for shipping to be added, if the customer requires.
