DMCC appoints executive director for gold and precious metals
The Dubai Metals and Commodities Center (DMCC) has officially appointed Colin Griffith as the executive director for gold and precious metals.
As a leading member of the international gold and precious metals community with over 30 years experience, Colin has been appointed by DMCC to specifically drive regional market and product development.
Colin will work locally and regionally with DMCC and their partners to promote product and service development, while simultaneously encouraging greater transparency. A senior member of the worldwide gold community, Griffith has worked within the gold and precious metals sector since 1969. His career started as a young ring trader at HP Thompson on the London Metal Exchange.
DMCC was created in 2002 as a strategic goal of the Dubai Government to establish a commodity market. DMCC is a regulator that serves the needs of participants in the gold, diamonds and commodities markets. It provides the market infrastructure that brings together a wide range of commodities activities and resident companies of DMCC are offered highly attractive benefits under a free zone status.
Alongside a 50 year guaranteed tax holiday, 100 percent business ownership and a secure regulated environment, DMCC is currently the only United Arab Emirates (UAE) center to offer full ownership of business premises. — (menareport.com)
