ETFS Physical Platinum


ETFS Physical Platinum (ASX Code: ETPMPT) offers low-cost access to physical platinum via the stock exchange and avoids the need for investors to personally store their own bullion.



ETPMPT offers investors a simple, cost-efficient and secure way to access platinum by providing a return equivalent to the Australian dollar price movement of platinum less a daily management fee.

ETPMPT is backed by physically allocated platinum held by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the Custodian) in London. Only metal that conforms with the London Platinum and Palladium Association’s (LPPM) rules for Good Delivery is accepted by the custodian. Each physical bar is segregated, individually identified and allocated which means there is no credit risk. Investors can choose to redeem units for the physical holdings.

ETPMPT is an exchange traded product (ETP) that can be created and redeemed on demand (by Authorised Participants). It trades on the stock exchange just like a share and is settled and held in ordinary brokerage accounts.
