ETFS Physical Platinum (ETPMPT) is designed to offer investors a simple, cost-efficient and secure way to access platinum by providing a return equivalent to the movements in the platinum spot price less the applicable management fee.
ETPMPT is backed by physical allocated platinum held by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the custodian). Only metal that conforms with the London Platinum and Palladium Association's (LPPM) rules for Good Delivery can be accepted by the custodian. Each physical bar is segregated, individually identified and allocated.
ETPMPT 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.
