Last week’s “Introduction to Loco London” course offered by London Bullion Market Association (“LBMA”) was notable for the range of participants in different timezones. We had a dedicated early bird who joined us at 3am Chicago time and we saw the glow of a sunset in the backyard of our Australian participant.
This introductory course covers numerous aspects of precious metals markets and is ideal both for new entrants and those looking for a refresher or a chance to fill in knowledge gaps. Groups are kept small to encourage discussion around the formal course materials. Last week we had excellent first-hand insights into “behind-the-headline” events such as difficulties of transporting bullion at the onset of COVID-19 and the dislocation between London and New York gold prices.
“Very good course, very informative and exactly what I was looking for”
