The ANZ Gold Account – a simple, secure and convenient way to hold and transact paper gold.

Why invest in an ANZ Gold Account?

Greater stability in uncertain times

Historically, gold has been viewed as a foundation asset for long-term stable investments and has weathered many economic and political uncertainties. Furthermore, it has often been regarded as anti-inflationary and a hedge against currency fluctuations.

Diversify your portfolio

Besides traditional financial asset classes like stocks and bonds, many investors seeking wider diversification now incorporate alternative investments, such as precious metals, into their portfolio. Gold offers a valuable contribution to one’s portfolio as the gold price tends to be driven by factors not correlated with other assets.

Safe and secure gold investments

Unlike physical gold, bullion coins and gold bars, you need not worry about purity levels, storage costs or security risks with an ANZ Gold Account. The ANZ Gold Account provides you with a simple, secure and convenient way to hold and transact paper gold.

Better control and convenience

With an ANZ Gold Account, you can buy and sell gold at market prices (XAU Spot) in transaction quantities as small as 15 troy ounces at any time during banking hours. ANZ also offers gold quotations and encashments into leading currencies like SGD USD, EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD, and JPY.
