The determination of the price of gold. Gold fixing is done twice per day by the London gold pool, which consists of five members who investigate the supply and demand for gold on the world market. The price that gold fixing determines serves as a benchmark for gold trading worldwide.
The five banks who oversee the so-called London gold fixing -- Barclays Plc, Deutsche Bank AG, Bank of Nova Scotia, HSBC Holdings Plc and Societe Generale SA -- have formed a steering committee that's seeking external firms to advise how the process could be improved, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the review isn't public.
