In order to address unmet demand for convenient and transparent gold investment, the World Gold Council and a growth capital fund backed by RIT Capital Partners Plc, the FTSE listed investment trust in which Jacob Rothschild and family are substantial investors (Augmentum), invested in BullionVault in June 2010.
Through this partnership we aim to further develop the online physical gold investment market and to ensure convenient, secure, transparent, and cost-effective access to physical gold investment.
BullionVault provides investors with an around-the-clock platform to buy, own and trade 100% physical gold bullion online and is the global leader in this rapidly growing segment - caring for over $2.2 billion of physical gold for more than 41,500 users in 122 countries.
BullionVault customers benefit from:
- Direct access to live "wholesale" pricing and cost efficiencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- The ability to safely store their gold in secure vaults in London, New York or Zurich and transact in British Pounds, Euros, or US Dollars
- The option to have their gold holdings physically delivered.
BullionVault is a full member of the professional trade body, the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and in 2009 was recognised by the UK’s prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for enabling private investors to access the cost-savings and security of the professional wholesale gold bullion market.
BullionVault holds only allocated gold for private investors and there is no minimum investment – users can buy as little as one gram at a time.
BullionVault charges a highly competitive 0.12% per year for secure storage and insurance (minimum US$4 per month or equivalent) and dealing fees for trades on their order board are a maximum of 0.5% and fall to 0.1% and then to 0.05% on larger sums.
