History & Integrity
The Sharps Pixley name goes back to 1778 and was originally founded through the merger of two London bullion businesses. Sharps Pixley was formerly a central player in the London gold and silver bullion broking community as an original gold fixing member and chairman of the silver fix.
The company name expired in 1995 but was revived in 2010 following the purchase of the company name and the trade mark from the former owner of the business, Deutsche Bank, thereby providing a link with the original firm.
Today the business is wholly-owned by one of the wealthiest families in Germany and sits within the DEGUSSA group of businesses, said to be one of the largest sellers of retail physical gold in Europe.
