ETFS Physical PM Basket (ETPMPM) is designed to offer investors a simple, cost-efficient and secure way to access the precious metal market by providing a return equivalent to the movements in the spot prices of four precious metals less the applicable management fee.
ETPMPM is backed by physical allocated precious metal held by HSBC Bank plc (the custodian). Only metal conforming with following rules can be accepted by the custodian: The London Bullion Market Association's (LBMA) rules for Good Delivery for Gold and Silver; The London Platinum and Palladium Association's (LPPA) rules for Good Delivery for Platinum and Palladium. Each physical bar is segregated, individually identified and allocated.
ETPMPM is an Exchange Traded Commodity ("ETC") that can be created and redeemed on demand (by market makers). It trades on the ASX just like an equity, is settled and held in ordinary brokerage accounts, and its pricing and tracking operates similarly to an Exchange Traded Fund. No new securities can be issued until the bullion is delivered to the Custodian's vault. There is no credit risk within this product.
