About the The GBI Platform

Our institutional quality platform powers alternative asset markets in the US, Asia and Europe.

Proprietary over-the-counter marketplace and trading system allows clients to buy and sell precious metals and digital currencies as native assets on their preferred platform. Connected to a global network of market makers, depositories and banks, the platform makes owning such assets as easy and safe as buying a stock or bond.

Our platform connects to the world’s top wealth managers, as well as custodians, banks, e-commerce companies, dealers and mints.

Institutional-Grade Physical Precious Metals Platform

An innovative combination of global over-the-counter marketplace and logistics network allows wealth managers and institutional investors to work with precious metals as a native asset class, maintaining assets under management and growing client relationships.

For Wealth Managers, Funds, Endowments...

Access physical gold, silver, platinum and palladium bars and coins through a competitive marketplace.
  1. Over a dozen dealers, refiners, and bullion banks participate in our marketplace
  2. The marketplace ensures competitive pricing on a “best execution” basis
  3. Seven global vaults: New York, Salt Lake City, London, Zurich, Australia, Toronto, and Singapore; run by Brinks, Loomis, and Malca-Amit
  4. Auditing of physical holdings by Inspectorate
  5. Fully insured for replacement value by Lloyds of London
These features are available in a completely integrated solution that enables seamless trading and reporting on client statements. Works for fee based / managed accounts as well as transactional accounts.

Institutional investors not working through a wealth manager (pension funds, endowments, mutual funds, hedge funds etc.) can utilize all the same capabilities through our direct access program.

The GBI Platform Has Expanded To Include Digital Currencies

The GBI digital platform provides the software to connect digital currency market makers to custodians and wealth managers, enabling reliable investment in this new asset class for their underlying customers.

Crypto Currency Solutions

Our cryptocurrency platform is built on the same sound traditions as our other logistics and trading networks:
  1. Assets are stored with a leading independent digital asset custodian to provide maximum safety
  2. Connections to multiple market makers and liquidity sources provide best execution pricing
  3. All of these systems can be integrated into B2B customers’ banking and reporting systems.

GBI has worked with the leading custodian/trustee to create a digital currency IRA platform that sets a new bar for the industry, with easy account setup, safety, and compliance.
Asset & Wealth Management
Asset and wealth managers can buy, sell, and store digital currency through their existing trading/customer platforms, just like it was a traditional asset class -- easily, safely, and under management.
Gold Backed Digital Currency
GBI also works with companies issuing precious metals backed digital currencies/utility tokens. Our platform enables just-in-time market making, NAV calculation, storage logistics, fee management, and more.
