To allow the board to focus on the core objectives it requires a robust and structured governance and administration facility. We were delighted when the LPPM offered to facilitate and manage WiPGMs financial affairs and provide secretarial and administrative facilities.
About the LPPM
London has always been an important centre for the metals. Trading was established in the early decades of this century, usually alongside the longer established bullion metals.
In 1973 the London Platinum Quotation was introduced. It was the forerunner of the fixings; a twice-daily indication of the market price for spot platinum, reported by some of the principal companies dealing in the metal. In 1979 the leading London and Zurich dealers reached an agreement to standardise the specifications and provenance of metal which they would accept as good delivery.
In 1987 the informal trading which had taken place for many years on a principal to principal basis was formalised via a Deed of Establishment into the London Platinum and Palladium Market.
