"Our clients have told us they want a simple, straightforward option to buy precious metals and that's why we are making it easier and faster for Canadians to purchase gold and silver," said Larry Tomei, Senior Vice President, National Sales and Service, CIBC. "Whether it is to mark a special occasion for a family member, or to hold for investing purposes, CIBC now gives Canadians access to buying precious metals when, where, and how they like."
Precious Metals More Popular Among Canadians
Mr. Tomei noted that there are many reasons Canadians buy gold and silver - including as gifts for important occasions, or as an investment holding. "We have clients who want to hold physical precious metals as part of a broad diversification strategy, and we also have clients who come to us to buy gold and silver to celebrate a special occasion," said Mr. Tomei.
While there has always been a demand for gold and silver among Canadians, the bank says clients may not be aware that they can buy these items directly through CIBC. "We have a long history of helping Canadians purchase gold and silver. We've enhanced that service by making it simpler and by expanding our product offering. We've also responded to clients seeking a self-serve online option they could use from the comfort of their own home," says Vineet Malhotra, Managing Director, Capital Markets Trading at CIBC World Markets.
