Internet Investment Gold (IIG) allows investors to buy physical gold online and have it stored on their behalf.
The landscape of such products has grown significantly over the last decade and new players are continuing to emerge. The largest providers now hold billions of US dollars worth of gold on behalf of investors.
As with any product group, it is important that investors fully understand what they are investing in and can identify the right solution before taking any decisions. The World Gold Council has therefore developed a set of guidelines that investors can use when considering how to invest in gold online, which is stored on their behalf (IIG), to help them identify a product that works best for them.
IIG Investor Guidance
The IIG Investor Guidance aims to help investors understand how to invest in gold online, differentiate between providers and assess which products best meet their needs. We provide relevant questions to consider when making an investment decision, and we provide background information and guidance for each question.
The guidance is designed to be a starting point. It does not constitute investment, legal or tax advice and is provided for educational purposes only. You can download the Guidance below:
