In a statement released today by Bullion Management Group Inc
There will be no "blood gold" for BMG states CEO Nick Barisheff of Bullion Management Group Inc. (BMG) is pleased to announce it has become an associate member of the Social Investment Organization (SIO). The SIO is the national association for the socially responsible investment (SRI) industry in Canada, with the primary mandate of providing the leadership role in furthering the use of social and environmental criteria within the Canada investment community.
BMG is Canada's first, precious metals company to join the SIO. BMG seeks to pursue continually the highest global standards for bullion purchase, storage, integrity, transparency and security for its clients and has already been accepted as an Associate Member of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA).
A report released in January of 2013 by the SIO states that socially responsible investment assets in Canada have climbed dramatically, showing growth in virtually every major market segment and outpacing the overall growth rate of the total assets under management. The Canadian SRI Review report states that assets managed under sustainable and socially responsible guidelines grew by 16 percent between June 30, 2010 (the date of entry into force of the last report) December 31, 2011. By comparison, total assets under management grew by nine percent in the same period. Total assets managed under SRI guidelines are $600.9 billion, up from $517.9 billion, an amount that represents 20 percent of assets under management in the financial industry.
"Our SIO Associate Membership is one more way for BMG to extend its commitment to provide uncompromising billion," said Nick Barisheff, CEO of Bullion Management Group Inc. "Anyone who monitors the gold mining and refining industry knows that with the 12-year rise in the gold price, illegal, unethical mining, and refining operations have emerged across the developing world. Investors in BMG's funds and BullionBars program must be confident that bullion purchased and stored on their behalf is obtained from ethical and legal sources."
As an Associate member of the LBMA, BMG, and its clients benefit from the LBMA Responsible Gold program. In which the LBMA requires all refiners producing Good Delivery gold bars to comply with the LBMA rights, avoiding contribution to conflict and expects refiners to meet the high standards of anti-money laundering and combating terrorist financing activities.
