The Real Asset Co. has initiated the first delivery of a silver futures contract on the Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange (HKMEx). The buyer and the seller of the silver futures contract are both clients of The Real Asset Co.

Lots of small investors trade futures contracts to get exposure to efficient gold and silver prices. Very few of these investors consider taking delivery because of the complications and costs. The Real Asset Co. wants to provide a delivery mechanism for these investors and bring the paper and physical precious metals market closer together

By leveraging our efficient marketplace and storage facilities with ViaMat in Hong Kong (which is also the depositary for silver futures on HKMEx) we allow investors to take or make delivery without any of the hassle normally associated with delivery of a futures contract. By having an account open with The Real Asset Co., you are set up to take or make delivery of a gold or silver futures contract on HKMEx. Visit The Real Asset Co. website to find out more about the delivery process for gold and silver futures.

“We hope this makes it much easier for investors to seamlessly move between the paper and physical markets, and we enjoy working with HKMEx to facilitate this. The Exchange’s gold and silver contracts are fully deliverable, and at 32 troy ounces (1-kilo) for gold and 1,000 troy ounces for silver are easy for small investors to trade. We think that there will be growing demand for people to take delivery of precious metal futures.” - Ralph Hazell, CEO – The Real Asset Co.

HKMEx trades are cleared and settled through HKMEx-appointed clearing house LCH.Clearnet in London.
