Singapore Precious Metals Exchange (SGPMX), the world's first physical precious metals exchange with peer-to-peer bullion trading capabilities integrated into the trading platform, launched in Singapore today, amid Singapore's drive to encourage gold trading in the country. As part of the launch, SGPMX also announces the entry into an MOU with Certis CISCO which will act as the custodian for bullion storage. Certis CISCO has been providing secure and trusted storage of precious metals for renowned banks and international couriers since 1986.
