Established in 1987, the World Gold Council is the market development organisation for the gold industry. Its 23 members include the world's leading gold mining companies, representing approximately 60% of global corporate gold production.
Working within the investment, jewellery and technology sectors, as well as consulting on government affairs, the World Gold Council's purpose is to provide industry leadership, whilst stimulating and sustaining demand for gold.
The World Gold Council was instrumental in creating Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) in gold - now traded across the world’s major capital markets and representing over $85bn of assets under management. Besides BullionVault, the World Gold Council has relationships with amongst others the Indian Post Office network, as well ICBC, the biggest commercial bank in China, where over one million customers opened gold-based savings accounts in 2010.
Based in the UK, with operations in India, the Far East, Europe and the US, the WGC is also the global authority on gold and its uses, and the first source of informed opinion and advice.
