With record numbers of first-time bullion buyers, family offices, hedge funds and HNWIs increasing their diversification into this asset class, IPM Group and Auctus Metal Portfolios are positioned to assist individuals, corporate and institutional investors to embrace the critical significance of maintaining a diversified investment portfolio, including an exposure to physical precious metals.
Established in 2014, Indigo Precious Metals Group is a trusted precious metals investment specialist, founded and run by leading metals expert, former investment banker and acclaimed financial analyst David J Mitchell, serving a wide international client base from offices in Singapore, Malaysia and the UK.
Founding Partner, David Mitchell shared, "Every asset class has its day in the sun. The global macroeconomic landscape is pointing towards a substantial revaluation of precious metals, driven by a myriad of dynamic factors.
“Exposure to traditional asset classes at this time, including stocks and property is becoming increasingly risky, as a growing acceptance of their extreme overvaluation becomes widespread. Current valuations are simply unsustainable in the longer term. There is a clear and ongoing shift occurring, with increasing global wealth capital flows moving into more defensive and undervalued asset classes. Investors are now demanding the inclusion of physical precious metals within their diversified portfolios.
“We are in the early days of a clearly-defined super-cycle in commodities. Precious metals represent the pointy end of the spear in terms of leading the way forwards in commodity asset appreciation. Expanding our headcount and securing a sizable ground floor retail space in the heart of Singapore's CBD will ensure that we are well equipped to meet this growing demand,” he added.
The new IPM Group retail bullion store features safe, discreet, and easy access to several dynamic bullion showcases and displays as well as well-appointed, private meeting rooms for prospective clients who seek bullion investment advice from their team of bullion experts and advisors. Monitors featuring live spot metal prices adorn the walls and provide investors with real time bullion market information including performance charts, forecasts, and research reports.
As a leading bullion dealer in Singapore since 2014, IPM Group has developed a loyal client base in trading precious metals and a reputation for consistently offering highly competitive premiums across the market. IPM Group offers an extensive selection of internationally recognised brands of investment grade bullion including Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium. Also on offer are rare earths and collectibles in a variety of denominations, weights, and product types.
IPM Group continues to focus on its mandate for offering free and bespoke investment advice as well as sharing in-depth research reports with all clients, as well as offering a comprehensive, low-cost A-class vaulting facility solutions together with Malca-Amit at Le Freeport Singapore (fondly known as the Fort Knox of Asia).

Singapore’s leading cinema exhibitor, Golden Village Multiplex (GV), is upping the ante in the entertainment scene in the east of the city, with the opening of Singapore’s first all-new laser projection multiplex at the new Singpost Centre retail mall, located at the heart of Paya Lebar.
Laser projection made its debut on the screens in all eight auditoriums at the 756-seat GV Paya Lebar, which officially opened to the public last month.
With a brightness of 20,000 lumens, the Barco Smart Laser Projection delivers unprecedented picture quality, far outperforming traditional digital projections. The new system creates higher contrast, clearer, crisper imagery and higher colour saturation, providing viewers with a far superior visual effect.

With its opulent twin leatherette seats, specially designed with lumbar cushion for superior support, the exclusive 58-seat cinema is further testament to GV’s uncompromising approach to creating the ultimate cinema experience.
And while the in-cinema enhancements might be the main talking point, the multiplex’ aesthetics is far from an afterthought. GV’s grab & Gold® café frames the entrance of the multiplex, lending the foyer both purpose and an aesthetic harmony, rarely seen in modern- day cinema design. grab & Gold® diners can enjoy a variety of local favourites and western dishes all of which can be enjoyed in the 35-seater café or in auditoriums during film screenings.

The latest, salubrious addition to the Craig Road stretch is PerBacco — an elegant Italian wine bar and restaurant helmed by chef-owner Marco Violano. In Italian, the word ‘PerBacco’ refers to Bacchus, the god of wine and good times and is also used as an expression of pleasure and surprise. It is, indeed, an apt name for an establishment that prides itself on offering an authentic, top-notch Italian bar and dining experience.
The long, spacious bar overlooks the charming street and offers an al fresco feel thanks to high chairs and tables arranged right by its large windows. Here, amid brick-lined walls and dark wood furnishings, Chef Marco offers an impressive range of whiskeys, rums, unpasteurised beers, Italian wines and other spirits, and a list of six classic cocktails including the Manhattan, Negroni, and Spritz. The cocktails are always made to perfection with premium spirits such as Fords London Dry Gin, High West Rye Whiskey and Bottega Gold Prosecco.
To accompany the drinks is a list of premium Ciccheti (Italian bar bites to share) that Chef Marco imports from Italy and stores in a beautiful cold room that forms part of the restaurant’s décor. There are cold cuts like Parma ham aged between 12, 24 and 36 months; mild and sweet small-batch salamenostrano; pure pork salame from Felino, a small town located in the Baganza valley; unctuous salame Milano; and soppressata, a dry salami native to Tuscany and Liguria. These are cut using a beautiful, traditional Tamagnini ham hand slicer brought in from Parma, Italy.
On the menu are refined classics from the Mediterranean, including Chef Marco’s signature homemade spaghetti chitarre (guitar spaghetti, in reference to the guitar-like tool used to make the noodles) with scampi and clay pot fregola (pasta made from semolina, similar to Israeli couscous) with fresh lobster.
Chef Marco makes it a point to import the finest ingredients from around the world, including beef from Kobe, Japan and lamb from New Zealand, which he cooks to deft perfection in his mixed grill. He also brings in seasonal vegetable, fruit and seafood such as mussels and clams from Italy twice weekly.
