With its product Xetra-Gold®, DBCo stands for reliability and integrity when it comes to investing in gold. Customer confidence and the highest security standards in the physical gold under custody are its top priority.
To the best of its ability, DBCo applies its lobbying influence on the LBMA to ensure comprehensive establishment of all ESG criteria within the gold market and increasing adherence to them.
With these efforts, DBCo expresses its commitment to regular communication with representatives of its partner Umicore, aiming to raise the LBMA Good Delivery standards. The recognised quality standard for gold bullions is an important concern for Deutsche Börse Commodities as a central factor in the recognised legitimacy of gold as a commodity. The LBMA assesses the quality of the precious metal, its ethical trading and responsible sourcing. For more information on the LBMA Good Delivery standards, please visit the LBMA website.
