A compendium of FMSB’s work on precious metals markets collates all three published FMSB Spotlight Reviews on these markets into one document, Compendium: Precious Metals Markets Evolution. The compendium includes forewords from the World Gold Council’s CEO, David Tait who chaired this industry-led initiative, and the London Bullion Market Association CEO, Ruth Crowell, as well as FMSB CEO, Myles McGuinness.
The Compendium looks at key aspects of the precious metals markets, including:
