Home / Brand Post / What is digital gold and why are people investing in it?

Gold coins and bars have been India’s most trusted investment instrument across generations, and for good reason. Reliable and convenient, the value of gold has increased enormously over the past few years, which makes it an increasingly lucrative option to store and compound. Gold prices have gone up more than 50% just in the last 3 years!

However, keeping physical gold stored over a long period has some downsides to it, such as accidental loss, theft, declined resale value due to making charges added on at time of purchase, and storage cost if you opt for a bank locker to store it. Digital Gold, on the other hand, when purchased is stored in secured vaults and insured on your behalf by the seller, and has zero making charges when you buy, giving you an immediate advantage over traditionally bought physical gold coins and jewellery bought solely for the purpose of investment.

What is Digital Gold?

Interestingly digital gold is just like the regular gold you buy, without the hassle of being responsible for security and storage for your asset. Eradicating the obstacle of finding an authentic seller and negotiating a fair selling price, digital gold offered by MMTC-PAMP, which also owns & operates India’s largest gold ecosystem, is the simplest and safest way to multiply your investments and hedge against volatile markets.

There is more than one reason that brought even large wealth management players like Aditya Birla Capital and Motilal Oswal to offer MMTC-PAMP digital gold to their customers, all of whom can be categorised in the ‘seasoned investor’ bracket.
