China’s ICBC buys giant London gold vault

23 may 2016
In a move to increase its role in the precious metal’s market, China’s ICBC Standard Bank is buying a precious-metals vault from Barclays PLC’s, one of Europe’s largest vaults, according to Bloomberg.
The agreement, which is due to close in July, will make ICBC Standard the only Chinese bank to operate a vault in London, a strategic market when it comes to trading and storing precious metals.
The vault, which holds up to 2,000 tonnes in gold, silver, platinum and palladium, will make it easier for ICBC to sells its services to western-based clients given that it now has a location to store metals that is closer to them.
Last week, ICBC joined the London clearing system for gold, silver, platinum and palladium, which is managed by London Precious Metals Clearing Limited (LPMCL).
China accounts for more than a quarter of global bullion demand, but gold trading was until recently largely run out of western banks and in markets such as London and New York.
