A Live One Day Overview of the Over-The-Counter (OTC) Bullion Market

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Gaining fresh insight into how the OTC bullion market functions can be invaluable – particularly if you are seeking to invest in, or understand more about the oldest and largest gold market in the world.

This one-day live virtual course offers a detailed and definitive primer on the global OTC precious metals market. It’s an ideal way to get up to speed with:

  • How the global precious metals market, centred on London, operates
  • How the clearing and settlement process functions
  • How the Good Delivery Lists assure metal quality
  • How the precious metals auctions work
  • How to use bullion derivatives

Ruth Crowell, LBMA CEO "I am delighted to announce the launch of this brand new one-day training course, designed for those of you who would like to improve their understanding of the global OTC bullion market. For the first time, participants will be able to get a comprehensive overview of the inner workings of the market, initially in the form of a one-day virtual training course and later in the year we will hope to begin running in-person training days too. Our trainer Emma Jenkins brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the role. I would encourage you to reserve your place on the course now as places are limited"

Our training microsite has more about the course programme, timings and the instructor – commodity derivatives expert Emma Jenkins.
