Extremely important
Please do not offer us gold if you want us to pay in advance for any reason or we should provide you with an MT103/23, MT760, MT799, SBLC or any other type of bank instrument. No guarantee is required as you are in control of your gold (the title of your gold is not transferred) until you are paid.

a) We have on file a detailed FCO (Full Corporate Offer) on the Owner’s (no Intermediaries or Mandates) letterhead

b) The metal exists (SKR – Safe Keeping Receipt and/or PoP – Proof of Product) and is available for sale. So, in order to confirm this, we need to receive an authenticated swift MT799 from the owner’s bank confirming that the bank or security company (like Brinks or G4S) are holding in their storage under the Owner’s name with full and clear title the XX MT of the metal. The swift should be sent only from the Owner’s bank to our bank

and

c) We also need to find out who the real Owner is (BRL-Bank Reference Letter), as most of the time we end up finding out that the gold belongs to either the late ex-President of Philippines Marcos, or the late former Shah of Iran, or the Royal Family of Thailand who are not allowed by law to export any gold, or the relatives of Kaddafi, or some other person or entity that are either terrorists (like Al Qaeda, etc.) or they are holding the gold illegally after stealing it from the government and they are not entitled to sell even one gram.

If we have verification from the Owner’s bank via swift that the gold exists and the Owner is a legal entity that is allowed to sell the gold, then and only then will we have a meeting with our Multi-Billion Dollar Gold Buyers and present them the swift, the FCO (Full Corporate Offer) with the Terms and Conditions, the SKR and/or PoP and the BRL, in order for the Prospect End Buyer to decide whether he wants to proceed further.
If the Buyer wants to proceed further, then we will immediately provide the Owner, again via a swift MT799 message, Proof of Funds (PoF) and a Bank Reference Letter (BRL) for the Buyer.

If the Owner finds it acceptable, then the Owner’s and Buyer’s Bank Bullion Officers with their lawyers can have a Table Top Meeting (TTM)

I am Official Mandate for the Buyer below

Please see attached (underneath) Bullion Exchange Procedures. My Buyer (name withohold), is Member of Allocation Bullion Exchange no ACN 149 681 489. All transactions go through him and Payments are from him to Owner/Seller.

This system is different from all other OFFERS you may have received. I receive approx 4/6 a week, as Mandate for(name withhold),, I personally “VET” all so called Offers. Most offers require Money/Bank Instruments up-front. As you will appreciate in all Commodity Transactions Product is Shown first, Confidentially, with our Inspection with Audit Check and then Payment. No Payments or Bank Guarantee first. (LMBA’s Procedures and or Recommendations). The company Inspectors cover all the Approved Vaulted Warehouses.

You will see on pages (underneath) that procedures normally work with Owner and Seller having Gold Bullion normally already in one of our Approved Vault Locations. My Exchange have Accounts in all of the mentioned Vault Warehouses, Brinks are coming on Board very soon. I require Weigh List for my Inspectors to visit and Purchase Invoice (details for invoice will be given at later stage). The Bullion is Authenticated and Payment is made on site, how simple is that. Account to Account within Vaulted Warehouse. If no Assay Reports are available then Product goes to one of our Approved Refinery’s as shown on Procedures page (underneath), for smelting and Assay Reports.

If you are in position to introduce Owner or Owners Mandate with certificate, I will introduce (name withhold), into Party to out line finer details to carry on with Transaction. On CC with yourself would be fine. The procedures are different from Template Type SCO’s and FCO’s, hence important Discussion take place between Owner/Seller and( name withhold), to formulate Contract between “Parties”. If Owner/Seller Genuinely want to sell, this System should suite them 120% as no expenses for transport, Custom clearances etc etc etc. If in Vaulted Warehouse in same Country Transaction can be conducted and Completed .

In last Transaction in Hong Kong, Owner transferred Bullion to our approved Vaulted Warehouse for the transaction.

You mentioned product coming to Europe, can you arrange product to Zurich and Delivered to Malca Amit, where we have Account to carry out transaction. (If product has Assay Reports and weigh List). If you are able to deliver to Zurich I will assist in logistics.

Parties cannot sit on both sides; they either act 100% for the buyer or act 100% for the seller and have fiduciary obligations to each party, which carry legal obligations.

Major buyers that take in large amounts of gold tend to be central banks, large bullion banks and government treasuries.

When an offer is sent to the buyer, any part of the buy side that is closed to parties unknown to the buyer contravenes many laws and will depend on the specific buyer and specific jurisdiction.

In general, if a party insists on a commission and this party is unknown to the buyer and has not been appointed by the buyer to act for them, or does not have an arrangement with the buyer, etc, then the practice of many central banks and treasuries is immediate criminal prosecution of the party as they have no legal or other right to represent they act for the buyer and are entitled to commissions paid by the buyer.

If such behavior was engaged in, the buyer would immediately commence criminal prosecution against any such party purporting to represent them under many pieces of legislation on the charges of Bank Fraud, misleading and deceptive conduct, wire fraud, etc, etc, etc

It is possible to cite specific legislation, types of criminal charges and lengths of sentences involved. Any party claiming commissions from an unknown buyer, who has not specifically appointed them, should for their own sake, carefully reconsider their actions.

These notes have been provided by several long standing buyers for, amongst others: The Federal Reserve, Top Foundations, Her Majesty’s Treasury/Bank of England who regularly buy gold in large volumes.

Please do not send over any offers “Requiring” money or Bank Instruments up front.

The Alternative Global Marketplace

Founded in 2011, the Exchange is an institutional exchange which brings global trading, price discovery and clearing

facilities from different regions into one online trading environment via its market-leading trading platform.

The exchange migrates the trade of physical precious metals into the electronic environment; breaking down barriers to

entry for the wholesale market, connecting the major liquidity centre’s of the world and fundamentally redefining the

way physical bullion is traded. At the heart of the Exchange lies the key objective of establishing a world first allocated

physical bullion exchange that is efficient, integrated and global.

The World’s Leading Physical Bullion Exchange Redefining the Way the World Trades

The Exchange is the world’s leading electronic institutional exchange for allocated physical precious metals. The

Exchange brings global trading, price discovery and clearing facilities into one standardised and secure online trading

environment via our groundbreaking exchange trading platform.

The exchange has Modernised, Globalised & Integrated the precious metal markets by redefining the way physical

bullion is traded. We connect all major global liquidity centres and break down the barriers of entry to the global

wholesale market for all market participants.

The exchange introduces a new centrally cleared, transparent and cost-effective allocated exchange system and

standard for the industry by offering precious metal market participants an exchange where they are able to trade,

deliver or store physical precious metal in 11 global locations. The Exchange gives market participants across the world

direct access to one integrated and consolidated global wholesale bullion market. We have enhanced market efficiency,

introduced inclusiveness and accessibility and provided relevant real-time price discovery.

The Journey

The Exchange was born out of a vision to create an efficient exchange where traders and investors worldwide could buy

and sell wholesale quantities of allocated physical gold in an efficient, secure and cost-effective way through an

electronic environment. Up until this day, the wholesale marketplace for physical bullion operated outside of an

electronic environment in disjointed, non-transparent, over-the- counter regional markets. These regional markets had

high barriers of entry, inhibiting many market participants from trading and investing in physical precious metals.

In 2010, while trying to invest in physical gold, the CEO was surprised to learn how overly archaic the physical precious

metal markets were. After an analysis was conducted on the state of the global physical bullion market, it became

apparent that the market was in dire need of reform; it was in need of being modernised, globalised and integrated. A

team was brought together to build the web-based electronic trading platform to facilitate the trading of physical

In 2011, a journey began across the world to showcase the revolutionary platform to market participants. It soon

became apparent that the appetite for the global marketplace was immense and change could in fact be implemented.

A migration away from the archaic, non-transparent, and unallocated OTC markets into a modern, global, and integrated

allocated exchange was indeed not just possible, but over time probable with the correct infrastructure.

Before long, the Exchange was founded and during its initial testing phase, the Exchange solution was tailored and

offered to brokers and investors worldwide. The success and industry buy-in received by the exchange confirmed the

need for a dedicated institutional exchange; in 2016, the Exchange fully launched in the world of finance, offering a truly

alternative and global marketplace for the trading of allocated physical precious metals.

Bringing efficient price discovery to 11 global trading hubs via the state-of- the-art platform the exchange has managed

to connect and empower an international network of buyers and sellers by offering direct access to the wholesale

bullion market; connecting all major liquidity centre’s and breaking down the barriers to entry to the global wholesale

We believe in efficiency, transparency, inclusiveness and the division of power amongst all market participants. We are

relentless in our pursuit of innovation and committed to providing the world with a seamless facility whereby investors

can make long-term investments with absolute confidence in all economic, financial and geopolitical conditions, and

physical industry participants can trade with confidence and efficiency no matter where they are and at what time.

Our Mission

Our mission at the Exchange is to provide a global allocated bullion exchange that is modern, integrated, and scalable;

an alternative global marketplace that will truly redefine the way the world trades physical. We are inherently committed

to progress and innovation, with a corporate culture that thrives on the values of integrity and transparency. What

defines us above all is our desire to connect a worldwide chain of market participants in what we envision to be a truly

global united marketplace.

Our Vision

Our vision is to optimise the way the world trades physical precious metals, elevating global physical market efficiency.

Bringing true price discovery to the market, we ultimately envision the establishment of a universal gold price and

The Exchange Vision – Built on the Pillars of Modernisation, Globalisation and Integration

bullion is traded around the world. Our vision is to optimise global physical bullion market efficiency by connecting the

Globalisation

The exchange has broken down barriers to entry to the major physical precious metals trading and liquidity centres

around the world. Interconnected and fungible trading hubs allow for electronic transfer of title and the ability to

arbitrage locational pricing differentials.

All 11 global trading hubs are interconnected and fungible with one another, allowing title to be electronically swapped

from one location to the next, drastically reducing the need to transport bullion around the world and providing an

efficient logistics solution.

The exchange breaks down the barriers to entry to the major physical precious metals trading & liquidity centres around

the world with a plug-and- play solution that incorporates real-time price discovery, clearing, storage and logistics in a

transparent electronic environment.

Locational pricing differentials are easily identifiable and can be immediately acted upon to lock in arbitrage profits.

A Universal Gold Price

Traditionally, price differentials per location can become extreme due the barriers to entry and lack of price discovery

mechanisms. Once our exchange hits a market infiltration tipping point, we envision that we will flatten the price of

physical precious metals around the world, as market participants will be able to identify and act on price dislocations.

Integration

The exchange solution incorporates the entire precious metals trading and investment process in one online

environment; offering unprecedented inclusiveness and connectivity to the wholesale market and providing a game-

changing, industry-first mine-to- market solution.

Our exchange integrates the physical bullion trade by offering a facility where precious metal producers can sell their

products into the wholesale market directly. The electronic platform provides a marketplace that directly connects the

world’s physical producers (Mining Producers) and the end consumers (Investors, Jewellers & Manufacturers), while at

the same time provides the opportunity to any type of broker to offer and promote our platform to their client base

through the exchanges white label solutions.

The Game-Changing Mine-to- Market Solution

The implications of offering a facility that faces the metal producers directly with consumers make the exchange

proposition a game-changer in the precious metals industry and provides the only true “Mine-to- Market” solution for

producers and end-users to make and take delivery directly from newly refined output or existing stock. The ability to

price, deliver and participate on a real-time, centrally-cleared and anonymous basis is the underlying force of change to

the existing status quo.

Comprehensive Storage Solutions

The Bullion Exchange offers comprehensive storage solutions with inventory management in multiple locations

worldwide with storage and logistics solutions being offered through third-party partnerships with world leading

secure logistics solutions providers: Malca-Amit, Armaguard and Loomis International.

Our vaulting providers are leading names in the logistical solutions industry who offer secure, efficient and reliable

services of the highest quality. Their modern infrastructure, cutting-edge security systems and comprehensive

insurance facilities ensure maximum security and minimum risk for the global storage of bullion.

Allocated Bullion Storage

Upon buying physical gold, silver or platinum through the exchange, a Trading Participant’s bullion will remain in the

Secure Storage Area of a given exchanges Vault and approved location; until a request is made for it to be transferred,

withdrawn or relocated to another location.

All bullion traded on the trading platform is stored on a legally Allocated and operationally Unsegregated basis, with

individual holdings allocated through a Holding Identification Number (HIN) system. Each HIN, which can be used to

identify a sub-account of a Member or a Private Client who has bought physical gold, silver or platinum through the

trading platform, holds direct full legal title to all bullion purchased.

For specific bullion products (1kg gold bar, 10oz gold bar and 100oz silver bar) legally Allocated and Operationally

Segregated storage is available through the use of an electronic Vault Warrant, which allocates a unique bar serial

number to the HIN against which the EVW is created.

Storage fees are calculated daily and invoiced monthly in arrears at agreed rates. Storage is only paid on the bullion that

is held by an investor at 5:00pm local time in each trading hub. Bullion that has not yet been delivered to the vault will

not accrue storage fees.

The trading platform takes care of all invoicing and storage management aspects. Full Members and other members of

the exchange are able to manage their end clients’ storage fees and generate comprehensive reporting on the holdings

under management through the platform.
