Memberships & Partners
Sharps Pixley are full members of the LBMA (London Bullion Market Association).
The LBMA is the pre-eminent body for the world’s largest and most important market for gold and silver bullion. The London Bullion Market is centred in London with a global Membership and client base, including the majority of the central banks that hold gold, private sector investors, mining companies and others. The LBMA’s Membership includes more than 145 companies, including traders, refiners, producers, fabricators, as well as those providing storage and secure carrier services.
Central to the LBMA’s quality assurance work is the maintenance and publication of the Good Delivery Lists for gold and silver, which are universally acknowledged as the de facto international standard for bullion.
Sharps Pixley sources its gold bars from London Good Delivery (LGD) refineries who conform to the the LBMA guidelines on 'Responsible Gold'. The Responsible Gold Guidance (RGG) became a formal requirement of Good Delivery for all LBMA accredited gold refiners in January 2012. Since then, all 73 gold refiners have completed their independent third party audit with no instances of zero-tolerance non-compliances.
