​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​EDR CERTIFIED ORIGIN

Everything that shines...must be traceable

Physical gold has numerous advantages in portfolio diversification but its origins can prove very tricky to trace. To meet increasingly strict investor demands for transparency, gold's supply chain needs to be scrupulously examined using m​ultiple criteria. We can no longer invest in gold as we used to do 50 years ago. A new approach is required, one that combines transparency and traceability all the way from the mine to the safe.

Our certified origin solution means that you can now invest in gold knowing that its source is entirely traceable.

​who really knows
our origins?​

Market turbulence and uncertainty have reinforced gold’s appeal. The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank in the US and Credit Suisse's woes are the latest examples of the crisis, sending the gold ounce above $2,000, its highest level in a year.

Today's environment seems particularly favorable for gold and especially physical gold. Investing in gold has a number of well-known investment qualities and with a suitable framework, can also answer the needs of the sustainable-conscious investor.

Gold could serve as protection against systemic risk, a threat that may have abated over the short term but which has not totally disappeared.

​Knowing the origin of the yellow metal in which one invests is becoming a major issue for investors today.
