Jim Sinclair Named Executive Chairman of Singapore Precious Metals Exchange (SGPMX)


SINGAPORE–()–Singapore
Precious Metals Exchange (SGPMX)
, the world’s first physical
precious metals exchange with peer-to-peer bullion trading capabilities,
today announced the appointment of precious metals specialist, Jim
Sinclair, as Executive Chairman of SGPMX. It also announced the
establishment of an Independent Advisory Board chaired by Jim Sinclair
to oversee the transparency and management of the Exchange, as well as
to develop education and advocacy programmes around physical bullion and
wealth storage.

Independent Advisory Board members of Singapore Precious Metals
Exchange’s Independent Advisory Board include former CEO of Kuala Lumpur
Stock Exchange (Bursa Malaysia Berhad), Dato Yusli Yusoff, President of
McMillan Woods Global, Dato Raymond Liew, prominent lawyer Ranjit Singh,
and experienced commodities trader, Peter Mickelberg.

Jim Sinclair said, “I believe the U.S. economy is headed for
hyperinflation and the alternative to currencies is precious metals. But
it’s physical gold and not future gold that we should be looking at. And
personally, I predict that emancipated physical gold price from future
gold price will go up from US$3,200 to US$3,500 an ounce by 2016.”

“I’m a firm believer of the Singapore Precious Metals Exchange’s
business model and am confident that the platform addresses bullion
trading challenges faced by traders, financial institutions and personal
wealth investors like myself. By unifying buy, store, trade and
transport elements under one platform, SGPMX will easily position itself
as a catalyst for Singapore to achieve its goal as a trading hub for
precious metals in Asia Pacific,” Sinclair adds.

Victor Foo, CEO and founder of SGPMX said, “As part of the company’s
long term growth strategy, we have invited industry specialists and
experts from various fields to form the Advisory Board. With each
member’s expertise, we are confident that they will not only value add
to the management of the Exchange, but also drive the bullion industry
forward with the initiatives in the pipeline.”
