We place high value on the many strong, collaborative partnerships we’ve developed across the globe.
These partnerships advance our objectives on two principal levels:
- Educating investors about gold’s unique investment qualities as well as developing, sustaining and increasing demand for gold as an asset class.
- Improving access to physical gold investment across products and across geographies, towards universal access.
