Sharps Pixley

SHARPS PIXLEY, originally founded as William Sharp in 1778, is an independent full-service precious metal brokerage. Founded on traditional values of service, discretion, integrity and respect, we are dedicated to providing a high quality service to a global client base of private clients, family offices, institutional investors, trusts, SIPPs and SSASs.

Our interest is to make precious metals accessible in the West End of London with our flagship showroom. Our resources are focused on promoting transparency within the precious metals market, helping us deliver the most competitive prices for our clients. Our focus is providing you, as a client or a prospective client, a service of the very highest standard, delivered by experienced people with professionalism and integrity.

As a wholly owned subsidiary of Degussa, Europe’s leading independent precious metals group, we provide our clients with institutional scale, service and support delivered in a uniquely personal way.

At Sharps Pixley, we build personal, long-standing relationships with our clients. We take the time to understand your requirements and you can rest assured that your personal information will always remain private and confidential.

Sharps Pixley offers a voice execution service to all of our clients. You deal directly with an experienced dedicated personal account manager; a market expert and a single point of contact managing your relationship from initial enquiry to trade settlement.

As full members of the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) we maintain the highest industry standards ensuring integrity and transparency.


Sharps Pixley offers clients discreet and secure vaulting services at our state-of-the-art bullion storage facility for precious metals in Mayfair.

With this option you are choosing to store your precious metals in a professional repository outside of the banking system. Storage is always individually segregated in the name of the client and you retain full control over your holdings. Clients can personally visit and inspect their precious metal held here at Sharps Pixley at any time during opening hours and without giving prior notice.

Our facility is fully insured through Marsh JLT Speciality Ltd and 100% underwritten by Lloyd’s of London ensuring peace of mind for all our clients.

Whilst the majority of our clients choose to vault their precious metals at our London facility, we do provide international vaulting services as and when requested by the client. At Sharps Pixley we understand that for many clients it is simply the next logical step in risk mitigation; to diversify their geographical vaulting risk across politically stable jurisdictions.


At Sharps Pixley, our legacy is protecting yours. As an additional service, we also offer clients safe deposit boxes for you to store your jewellery, documents and precious metals securely and discreetly. We have three box sizes available, so you can choose which one best fit your requirements.

Our state-of-the-art certified grade 10 storage vaults are among the most secure in the world. We use facial recognition and biometric fingerprint scan technology to ensure fast and highly secure access. 24/7 CCTV surveillance is directly linked to the Metropolitan Police.
