“BNY Mellon has an excellent reputation for providing customized services for commodity-based exchange-traded products,” says Fred Jheon, head of product and business development for ETFS Marketing. “Based on our existing relationship in Europe, we are confident that BNY Mellon will be an excellent partner in the US on our new physically-backed precious metal products. Our new offering, SGOL, has been constructed to provide investors with a low-cost and convenient way to gain exposure to physical gold held in fortified vaults in Switzerland, and we are confident that BNY Mellon has the capabilities to support this type of product.”
