Digital Gold is fast emerging as the ideal way for youngsters looking to invest in gold. Digital Gold, available on Finserv MARKETS, is revolutionising the way gold is being bought, sold and utilised. Here’s how!
Seamless and Transparent Trading: Buying gold traditionally involves a visit to the jeweller, and bargaining over their charges. Along with the costs of the metal, a visit to the jeweller involves making charges for designing the jewellery the way you want it. These usually build up to a substantial amount and instances galore of customers being fooled into paying more and receiving lesser amount of the precious metal than they are entitled to. However, when you buy Digital Gold on Finserv MARKETS, not only are you assured of the value of your investment; but you are also more aware of the charges attached to every purchase you make.
Smaller Investment: The older population still believes in saving up money to buy gold for festive and celebratory occasions, including Diwali, Akshay Tritiya and marriages. The younger generation has taken to buying Digital Gold because of the small ticket size involved in its purchase. For instance, on Finserv MARKETS, you can buy gold for as little as Rs. 100. This would have been virtually unthought of even a few years ago. But now, you can build up your investment over the long-term by investing in Digital Gold.
Easier Liquidity: Gold has always been a popular instrument for investors who are looking to hedge risks against inflation, and for the easy liquidity it offers. With Digital Gold, achieving liquidity is even easier because you can sell your gold reserves with a few clicks on your computer. Emergency financial crises can be averted with the easy access to cash that Digital Gold provides.
No Storage Costs: Another major expense associated with the purchase of gold is the cost of storing it safely. Most people rent a locker in order to avoid the risks of storing it at home, where it could lead to thefts and burglaries. However, when you buy Digital Gold on Finserv MARKETS, you get access to a storage vault for five years at no additional charges.
