Gold bar list and Inspectorate certificates
All of the Trust’s gold is held by the Custodian, HSBC Bank plc. ("HSBC"), in their London vault except when the gold has been allocated in the vault of a sub-custodian. In such cases HSBC has agreed that it will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly transport the gold from the sub-custodian’s vault to the HSBC’s London vault, at HSBC’s cost and risk.
The sub-custodians that HSBC use are Bank of England and London Bullion Market Association (“LBMA”) market–making members that provide bullion vaulting and clearing services to third parties.
The gold bar list is updated at the end every working day (EST). To view the most recent list of all the gold bars held by the Trust, please click the link below.
Please note that on December 17 2013 the daily gold bar list changed. A smaller font size is now used which will allow for more gold bars to be listed on each page - resulting in a shorter bar list document.
The ounces of gold listed on the daily barlist may differ from the ounces of gold listed as owned by SPDR® Gold Trust ("Trust") on the website due to timing differences in trading and settlement. The barlist includes ounces of gold on a settlement date basis, while ounces shown on the website are on a trade date basis. Effective June 1, 2011, the Trust has entered into an agreement with HSBC Bank plc, the Trust’s Custodian, which will ensure that all of the Trust’s gold is held in allocated form at the end of each working day.
