PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gold Frontiers Inc., a global software and financial services company, is pleased to announce its engagement of Computershare Trust Company, N.A. This news coincides with the full release of Gold Frontiers’ Bullion Gateway™, a technology platform enabling institutional investors to safely purchase, store, deliver, and redeem physical gold, silver, platinum, and palladium in a liquid ecosystem with low cost, simplicity, and maximum transparency.
This technology modernizes the process by which institutional investors and ultra-high net worth family offices take positions in highest-quality precious metals for storage worldwide in vaulting facilities of their choice. These financial transactions are enhanced by means of Computershare’s capabilities to perform vital escrow functions, inclusive of know-your-client verification and international currency exchange services.
Utilizing standardized financial escrow services from Computershare, Gold Frontiers’ process enables investors to own allocated and segregated bullion as an asset on their balance sheet rather than as a liability on someone else’s. Gold Frontiers is fulfilling its global mission to reduce and when possible eliminate a wide range of investment risks by means of Bullion Gateway.
“Our relationship with Computershare is a crucial step in providing an accessible and transparent solution for institutional investors who seek the portfolio diversification properties benefits that a long term investment in precious metals can provide,” said Justin Van Til, CEO of Gold Frontiers. “We believe our process allows investors to reduce and potentially eliminate a range of risks that currently accompany investments in physical precious metals, including portfolio, derivative, currency, systemic and counterparty risks.” At the recent IPMI Conference, the first gold Kilobar that has a unique instrument level CUSIP, the common language identifier for financial instruments, was introduced.
The physical precious metals industry has not kept pace with innovations in the rest of the financial world. Bullion Gateway technology delivers streamlined and secure communications between institutional buyers and sellers in every purchase and sale of these assets. Using its path-breaking dual escrow process on both the financial and physical metal sides of each transaction, Gold Frontiers neither controls nor takes possession of client funds or precious metals holdings at any point. The platform employs proprietary messaging standards (analogous to what SWIFT achieves in cash management) to connect with our strategic partners to reduce major risks and increase efficiency.
