VaultChain™ Gold is investment grade physical gold vaulted at the Royal Canadian Mint and is not a security, derivative, future or other financial contracts.
VaultChain™ Gold vs. Gold ETF
Owning gold is now as easy as owning a gold derivative. Why settle for less?
Each unit of an ETF is a security that represents equity ownership in a fund or trust that in turn holds physical gold with a bank or other depository. The fund or trust charges owners an annual fee to cover management, storage, marketing and administrative costs. Final beneficial owners do not directly own the underlying physical assets held by the fund or trust and - in most circumstances - cannot take physical delivery of their metal.
VaultChain™ Gold is owned directly by the final beneficiary, whose metal is stored on a bailor-bailee basis with the Royal Canadian Mint and recorded on VaultChain™’s blockchain database; there is no trust or fund wrapper, which eliminates the associated management and administrative fees. The underlying assets are deliverable at the request of the final beneficiary through participating dealers
