Precious and Base Metals

Scotiabank provides precious and base metal products and services through ScotiaMocatta, a global leader in metal trading and finance, with offices worldwide.

Mocatta has been at the forefront of world markets with innovative new products and solutions that have become industry standards. Established in 1671, Mocatta was the world's earliest bullion broker and by 1774 was handling three-quarters of the world's entire gold production. In 1897 Mocatta chaired the first London Silver Fixing and ScotiaMocatta, as it became known following acquisition by The Bank of Nova Scotia in December 1997, continues to chair the Fixing today. We are also a member of The Gold Fixing.

With operations worldwide, ScotiaMocatta serves a widely diverse clientele of producers and consumers of precious and base metals, in a variety of industries including mining companies, smelters, refiners, manufacturers, fabricators, central banks, financial institutions, investment funds, jewellery manufacturers, and merchant/traders. Trading and metals banking services include spot, long and short-term forward transactions, options and derivatives on gold, silver, platinum and palladium, as well as lending facilities including loans, leases and consignment of metals worldwide. ScotiaMocatta assists clients in managing their exposure to price volatility through tailor-made hedging programmes.

ScotiaMocatta is one of the few full-service providers with a specialization in physical precious metals.
