Sharps Pixley

Sharps Pixley

Sharps Pixley was formed through the merger of two of London's leading gold dealers, Sharps Wilkins and Pixley & Abell. It was acquired by Kleinwort Benson in 1966 largely at the behest of the Bank of England who needed a stable parent for a firm that played an important part in the fixing of the gold price.

In 1993 the business was bought from Kleinwort Benson by Deutsche Bank who no longer use the Sharps Pixley brand and sit on the London Fixing committee under their own name.
