Phoenix Precious Metals

Phoenix Precious Metals.

Our Partners are experienced experts in their chosen fields, trustworthy, credible and fully referenceable. PPM strongly subscribe to both fair trade and responsible sourcing policies.

  • PPM was formed in 2015 by industry veteran Yacoub Sidya.
  • Part of the larger MSS group, formed in 2005 in Dubai, UAE

AvantGold has partnered with Phoenix Precious Metals (PPM), who were established in 2015 with a focus on trading precious metals and precious stones. In 2016, they initiated their own gold exploration, and in 2018, they began gold extraction and production.

PPM invested its own time and funds, and later saw a bigger vision: a grand opportunity to integrate the supply chain, streamline operational costs and make processes more efficient for the end user buyer.

PPM’s Audited Accounts show 350,000 oz of gold traded and on the extraction side they had 38,000 of proven reserves in their mining contracts and permits.

PPM (and their larger sibling MSS) are both part of the Phoenix Group of companies. Services offered internationally range from Security, Aviation, Foreign Exchange, Trading, Logistics and Consulting.

PPM’s core values are centred around corporate responsibility, community well-being and enforcing a responsible supply chain every step of the way.

PPM has grown into a major stakeholder in the West African gold market as they continue to acquire mining permits. They now operate from 8 offices across the African continent and UAE to service our clients.

PPM community values.

The people in the places we operate are truly the cornerstone of success. We connect with communities for reciprocal partnerships and long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.

PPM provides material investments for construction and on-going support of schools and hospitals; we assemble and repair infrastructure, and provide improvements to water systems.

We respect the people, and they respect us, especially when we create jobs and offer opportunities that transform lives.

At PPM, we strive to become an employer of choice. We have become a coveted workplace, attracting and retaining employees by providing honorable and safe working conditions, a competitive rewards system, and opportunities to learn new skills and grow as a professional.

Our overarching principle is to be reciprocal with our team members: hard work, honesty, dedication, and ambition are tenants that we highly recognize in our employees.

PPM Social responsibility.

The origin of our business model began because of our keen observation; we noticed gaps in the industry’s social responsibility. We vow to ensure that our activities are zero-harm to all parties involved, especially the local communities, our employees, and the environment. Instead, our goal is to contribute to the development of local communities, deliver long-term value to our employees, and invest in environmental protection. We have been committed to steady growth since day one, and we are proud of the results.

We advocate for the livelihood of communities and economies; to achieve this goal, we focus on long-term, continual success by adhering to strict fair trade practices. Our in-house purchase and export departments ensure law-abiding processes and protocols to secure our physical gold transactions. PPM holds internal KYC and AML policies to govern how our staff operates and adheres to legislation.
