KreditBee fintech platform on Tuesday announced the launch of ‘KreditBee 24K Gold’, a digital gold investment product. Customers can securely buy digital gold with 99.5% purity at live market rates with a single tap on the KreditBee app. 

Currently, the offering is available for a select set of customers wherein they can start with a minimum investment value of as low as 1 and up to 3 lakh. Soon, the option will be available for the larger customer base.

The purchased gold can also be converted into physical coins or bars and stored in a vault. In case the customer requires their physical gold in person, they can request delivery of the same at their doorstep across the country. The quantity for delivery can be as low as 0.5 gm, secured by free transit insurance from SafeGold.

Madhusudan Ekambaram, co-founder & CEO, KreditBee said, “We are elated to partner with SafeGold and launch our distinctive offering ‘KreditBee 24K Gold’, which will make buying gold affordable and highly convenient for customers. It will further encourage savings by providing them with a long-term investment option while eliminating the costs of storage. Gold has always held a special place in India and is one of the most valued universal commodities. The launch of this service also aids our business diversification goal, to engage with our customers effectively and cater to their varied financial needs."

KreditBee currently offers multiple types of personal loans and a credit-line backed prepaid card. The company further plans to diversify its product offering by venturing into digitally-enabled secured loans, home loans and credit lines, which involves expanding its lending portfolio by introducing financial services like insurance, credit score report, merchant-side offers, among others.

Gaurav Mathur, founder & MD, SafeGold, said, “We aim to empower Indians, with access to a simple, convenient and secure way to save in gold while giving them assurance on quality, purity, and price.
