Precious Metals Department
The Precious Metals Department, with main bases in Singapore, Tokyo, New York, London, and Shanghai, operates round the clock, procuring precious metal ingots from producers and others based on long-term contracts, for stable supply to customers around the world. It also supports a variety of transaction forms including average-price/long-term fixed price contracts and lease contracts, and provides a wide range of market information drawing on the Mitsubishi Corporation RtM Group and Mitsubishi Corporation global network.
As the Japan base of the Mitsubishi Corporation RtM Group, we do business primarily with customers in markets such as Japan, Southeast Asia, and China. Due to recent increases and greater volatility of market prices, we also provide increasingly-necessary risk management techniques in line with customer needs.
