With the launch of India International Bullion Exchange and soon to be launched domestic spot exchanges for precious metals in India, the landscape of trading of precious metals is going to see a substantial change. It will open a wide range of market opportunities for trading in precious metals, however, will also require a deeper understanding of the product mixes, trading strategies and instruments for mitigating risks. The disintermediation that comes with this is expected to benefit the stakeholders across the value chain.

In this context, this workshop on precious metals trading is designed to make you understand the nuances of the business straight from the veterans in the field. The programme shall give an overall perspective on various facets of precious metals with regards to trading, hedging strategies, risk management and compliance among others. Further, the programme shall offer deep insights into unexplored aspects of mining and the risks of mine sourcing as well as how vaulting partners play an important role in maintenance of supply chain integrity.
