[v] LBMA members currently offer custodial services, and I understand that for the largest customers these can be as low as 8 basis points. With LBMA banks no longer profiting from gold derivative turnover, custody rates including vaulting are likely to rise. Whether LBMA customer business remains on a balance sheet or migrates to custodial services remains to be seen.

In this submission jointly signed by the World Gold Council unallocated gold was presented solely as a convenient means of gold dealing, and nowhere was the reader informed that the BIS regarded forwards as derivatives. This is an important misrepresentation because gold and physical commodities outside a normal settlement cycle is covered by different rules in Basel 3.
