I'm also pleased to tell you of some recent news. Each year on her birthday Her Majesty the Queen awards a number of British businesses "The Queen's Award for Enterprise" - by far the most prestigious award for UK business.
There are 3 categories, of which one is Innovation. This year 49 British businesses have received awards for innovation, and one of them is BullionVault.
The formal citation reads :
"Through an innovation by BullionVault.com, to whom an Award is made,
private investors can access, at reasonable price, the professional
gold bullion market in London. Until the innovation, because of the
imposition of large minimum deal sizes, the market was virtually
inaccessible to private investors, who were restricted to the higher
costs of the smaller-scale coin market. To support the novel idea,
the company developed internet technology for the buying and selling
of gold twenty four hours a day, without the need for a human dealer,
and also for publishing daily information to reassure clients that
their gold is safe and that they are entitled to it."
As testimonials go I'm very happy with this one.
