DMCC ecosystem


Setting the standard for the worldwide trade in gold

DMCC’s status as one of the world’s largest gold trading hubs underpins Dubai’s international reputation as ‘the City of Gold’, with the emirate accounting for 25% of worldwide trade in the metal – the majority of which flows through DMCC.

DMCC boasts exceptional infrastructure, from a cutting-edge and bespoke precious metals vaults, to a dense refinery grid, to jewellery manufacturing facilities. Our unique products, including UAE bullion coins and dynamic platforms such as the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange (DGCX) and DMCC Tradeflow for trade finance, seamlessly blend the age-old trade with modern advancements.


Unrivalled globally, DMCC's innovations include regional gold options trading and Shariah-compliant hedge funds.

Embracing the future, DMCC has ventured into the digital realm, pioneering the tokenisation of gold. By backing crypto assets with gold via the Tradeflow platform, we're bridging traditional trade with futuristic innovations.
