CHICAGO - July 11, 2014 - PRLog -- CHICAGO, (July 11, 2014) – Zaner Group ( today announced that the proprietary hedging platform named Tornado Bullion Cart, operated by its subsidiary Zaner Precious Metals, has conducted nearly a billion dollars in notional value of precious metals hedging to date.

The Tornado Bullion Cart aggregates precious metals best bids and offers from all available sources, around the clock, providing investors and traders from financial institutions to geologists to coin dealers a liquid and up-to-the-minute mobile hedging solution.

It was created based on the model of foreign exchange price aggregation needed for the world’s largest institutions and governments to know current market values of various currencies for the purpose of risk management.

Said Pete Thomas, CEO of Zaner Precious Metals: “A decade ago, my COO and partner Tom Garland and I identified a demand in the gold community; there was no way for refiners, miners and coin dealers to protect themselves against market movement with regards to ‘odd lots’, or amounts of metal that weren’t 100 ounces in size. The Tornado Bullion Cart sprang from this need to help people hedge risk in the cash market and vis a vis other precious metals assets.”

“We were the first mobile hedging platform specific to hedging risk in precious metals, and notional value that is reaching the billion dollar mark is a testament to the importance of having a price aggregation system that works for all market participants in this asset class,” Thomas stated.

Added Matt Zaner, CEO of the Zaner Group, “We recently launched our precious metals subsidiary and Pete brought the Tornado Bullion Cart technology and more than a decade of experience using it to the development of this alternative asset class. Now, Zaner’s clients and prospects also will be able to tap into the increasingly large pool of participants for accessing best prices.”
