A new standard for responsible gold investing

The SMO Physical Gold ETCs are designed to provide precise and efficient exposure to gold. They are backed by gold from a small number of mines that meet the highest environmental, social and governance standards, with full traceability across the supply chain. The mines are selected, screened and monitored by Single Mine Origin (SMO) Limited, an independent company set up to provide a trusted standard for responsibly sourced gold.

About the index

The ETCs are designed to track the LBMA Gold Price, a recognised benchmark for gold, quoted in US dollars per troy ounce and administered independently by ICE Benchmark Administration (IBA).

Investment process

The ETCs are debt securities backed by SMO Gold bars. The bars are held in secured allocated accounts in the name of the Issuer and stored in a secure vault with the Custodian. A list of the bars held is published daily at The gold is valued daily at the LBMA Gold Price. Following the issue of new securities, the ETC may be partially backed by non-SMO Gold. This will meet LBMA Good Delivery standards (including LBMA’s Responsible Gold Guidance) and will be exchanged as quickly as possible for SMO Gold.

Registered countries

The securities are currently registered for sale in the United Kingdom.
