At what price is gold sold/ bought from customers?
The Company will publish a live buy-sell quote for customers which will be derived from the wholesale bullion market plus a commission to cover operating costs. The actual purchase price paid by the customer will always be transparently published so the customer has a chance to compare with all other sources before entering into a transaction.
Why is the Buy Price different from the Sell Price?
SafeGold buys international grade bullion from institutional suppliers and sells this to consumers. When customers sell gold back to us, we sell it back to institutional participants in the wholesale bullion market, where the buyback rate is lower than the selling rate – this is referred to as the buy-sell spread.
In addition to the buy-sell spread in the commercial bullion market, GST is added to the buy price, but it is not levied on any sell transactions. Further, there are charges incurred on the payment gateway, trustee, insurance and custodian fees which also contribute to the difference in buy and sell price.
Is the gold associated with my accumulations kept in safe custody?
Yes, the gold associated with the accumulations credited in your account is kept in safe custody with a Custodian in accordance with the terms of the offer mentioned in the product brochure. Only reputed firms such as Sequel Logistics and Brinks will be used as a custodian.
Who will insure the physical vault?
SafeGold has partnered with the global market leader in secure logistics and vault services- Brink’s, to store your gold. As part of their duty, the secure storage provider takes out a comprehensive insurance policy, which includes the cover on your gold. Over and above that, SafeGold has insurance cover for the period where gold is in transit, when the gold leaves the vault. We review our risk & insurance policies regularly, to ensure that we are covered for additional or specific risks.
Who will manage consumer complaints?
Distributors will provide the first level of customer support. The Company will be available to satisfy any issues/ questions that may be escalated. You may write to us at email@example.com or call our Customer Service team at 8881000800.
Is there any regulator or Grievance redressal mechanism?
SafeGold is neither a Collective Investment Scheme nor a Deposit. Therefore we do not fall under the purview of SEBI or RBI. However, to ensure that the customer's interest is always prioritized, a Security Trustee has been appointed for SafeGold. For any grievances the customer can approach the Security Trustee.
What will happen to the gold associated with accumulations in my account, in the unlikely event of the Company going into liquidation?
The gold associated with accumulations in your account is separate from the other assets of the Company. An independent trustee appointed by the Company will act for and on behalf of the customers. The gold purchased by the Company associated with the accumulation in customer accounts is transferred to the Custodian appointed by the Company for the product. When the customer asks for delivery, the requisite quantity of gold will be removed from the Custodian and delivered to the customer through a reputed courier service. Since the Security Trustee has a charge over the gold over other commercial creditors till the time of fulfillment and the gold is separate from the other assets of the Company, any unlikely adverse event happening to Company should not affect the gold associated with the accumulation in your account. Further, the title of the gold clearly rests with the customer and the physical gold stored with the Custodian on account of SafeGold customers is not an asset of the Company in any way.
Which are the agencies which certify Gold in India?
The Government of India has identified the Bureau of Indian Standard as the sole agency in India to operate the BIS Hallmarking Scheme. The BIS Hallmarking Scheme has been aligned with International criteria on hallmarking (Vienna Convention 1972). A Hallmark, consists of five components i.e. BIS Mark, the Fineness number (corresponding to given carratage), Assaying and Hallmarking Centre's Mark, Jeweller's identification Mark and year of Marking denoted by a code letter and decided by BIS (e.g. code letter `A' was approved by BIS for year 2000, `B' being used for the year 2001 and `C' for 2002 and 'J' for 2008). The marking is done either using punches or laser marking machine. Some manufacturers also issue Assay Certification which can be obtained through Assay Offices. Assay offices are institutions set up to assay (test the purity of) precious metals, in order to protect consumers. All coins and jewellery offered SafeGold are assay certified.
Is there any lock-in period for this plan?

What is the benchmark for the Price of SafeGold? Can MCX be taken as a benchmark?
There is no benchmark for comparing the price of SafeGold. MCX cannot be considered as a benchmark, since there are many differences between SafeGold and MCX. MCX gives the prices of a futures contract which doesn’t give the landed prices by factoring in cost of logistics, insurance, safekeeping, etc. MCX also does not include pan India delivery, and based on the contract it gives delivery at only a few locations like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Delhi, etc. SafeGold gives delivery across the country, and includes the cost of storage, insurance, trustee fees and gives you the landed, complete price of Gold.

What is Gold leasing?
Gold leasing is a method by which you can lease your gold metal (held through digital platforms), to jewellers and ornament manufacturers (Lessee), who will utilise the gold metal as part of their working capital. After a fixed term, the Lessee will return your metal along with a lease rental payment. In concept, this is not very different from you owning an asset like a house or a car and renting it out to another user who pays a rental for using your asset.
All parts of the lease are denominated and carried out in grams of physical gold.
How does it work? What are the steps involved?
SafeGold facilitates the lease of your physical gold metal to the jeweller of your choice after they have been properly vetted, onboarded and have provided security for the lease. We also coordinate with the jeweller to ensure that the gold metal is physically added back to the vault along with the yield, and accessible to you once again, at the end of the lease tenure.
What are the steps involved?
The steps involved are:
How do I participate in a gold lease?
In order to lease your gold, you’ll need to have a SafeGold account, and complete the steps above.
How and when will I earn a yield on my gold?
Once you’ve committed your gold for a specific lease, the yield will be paid out to your SafeGold account (in the form of gold grams) every month. At the end of the lease, the last payment to your account will have both the principal gold amount as well as the yield added.
Who is SafeGold? What role does SafeGold play in the lease?
SafeGold is India’s leading digital gold platform, with partnerships across 60+ platforms, and over 20 million customers. We are India’s largest ecosystem of digital gold services, which includes buying and selling gold at live market rates, gold savings, and converting your digital gold to physical forms like gold jewellery, coins and bars. Read more about us on our here.
SafeGold facilitates the leasing of your gold savings in terms of onboarding & vetting the jewellers listed for lease options, including the security provided as collateral for the lease. We also physically provide the gold metal to the jeweller for their use. We ensure that yield payments are added to your account every month, and at the end of the lease tenure, add back the committed gold and yield to your account once the jeweller has closed the lease.
Is the yield paid out in rupees or grams of gold? If in gold, how do I convert it to rupees?
The yield is paid out in the form of grams of gold, which accrue to your SafeGold account. You can sell this gold at any time as per the prevalent rate, and the funds will be transferred to your bank account.

But we don’t just allow anyone to list on the SafeGold platform - we provide a vetted list of jewellers with whom we have deep relationships, whose credibility and credit worthiness are established.
Jewellers need gold metal in the same way that any business needs working capital. For a jeweller, it makes more sense to lease gold metal directly, because otherwise they could be affected by price fluctuations if they utilise a rupee loan to purchase gold and then have to repay in rupees once the gold price goes up.

You can choose between lease options based on details such as tenure and yield provided by different jewellers on the listing page.
How is the yield rate decided?

When is the lease process complete? Do I start earning returns from the day I lease my gold?
The lease shall continue during the tenure mentioned in the listing page, unless the jeweller chooses to close the lease at an earlier date, by settling the gold metal. You will earn a yield from the time that your gold is committed on a daily basis, which will accrue on a monthly basis to your digital gold account.
How do I exit a lease?
You will be able to exit a lease at the end of the tenure mentioned on the listing page or at an earlier date, if the jeweller chooses to close out the lease earlier. The typically tenure for a lease is 3-6 months.
Are there any global examples of this product?
This is a completely innovative product, offered for the first time in the world by SafeGold. We are proud to offer this product in India first, given the rich tradition of gold as an investment class and one of the largest industries in the country.
Is a gold lease part of the gold monetisation scheme?
No, the gold lease is not part of the gold monetisation scheme.

No, you will not be able to sell your gold while it has been committed to a lease, as it would have been removed from the vault and physically given to the jeweller.
How can I calculate my returns in rupees rather than gms of gold?
SafeGold will send you a statement at the time of the leasing closing, which will contain details on the final yield in grams as well as rupees (calculated at the time of the statement being sent out).Eligibility and Liquidity

The key risks associated with the product can be viewed here.
What happens if the price of gold falls or if there’s a default? Will you guarantee my returns?

Is my gold safe?
SafeGold follows various practices to help keep your gold safe, including:
How can I trust the the jeweller who is leasing the gold?
We take your trust in our platform very seriously, and are extremely selective in which jewellers we allow to list on our platform. These are usually jewellers with whom we have deep relationships, where we have a higher confidence in their credibility.
In addition to this, the jewellers taking the lease provide a security for the lease, demonstrating their creditworthiness and commitment to repayment.
Is there any security over lease repayments? Do you have a contingency plan?
Jewellers provide a specified collateral coverage of the value of gold they are leasing, which acts as a security for the lease.
In the event of default, SafeGold is authorised to enforce the bank guarantee, to ensure that funds are recovered to the greatest extent possible against the lease.
What is a bank guarantee?
A bank guarantee is an instrument through which a lending institution (such as a bank) promises to cover a loss if a leasee (such as a jeweller) defaults on a lease. This is usually enforceable by the lessor (eg. the one offering the metal to be leased) or an institution acting on behalf of the lessor.
What does a margin of a specified range such as 100-109% mean?
A margin of 100-109% means that the security provided by the Lessor (i.e. Jeweller) is equivalent to a value within the range of 100-109% of the gold metal taken on lease (calculated as per the price on the date of the lease, and thereafter updated based on daily pricing).
How are you keeping my personal details safe?
Safegold has stringent security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Whenever you change or access your account information, we offer the use of a secure server.
