At Citibank International Personal Bank, you can invest in gold to diversify portfolios into non-cash investments or hedge against economic and political uncertainties and reduce investment risk. In market conditions where the rate of inflation is steadily rising, gold investments are generally able to maintain value and can thus serve as an anti-inflation hedge for investors.
- Opportunity to spread your risks by diversifying into non-cash investments and as a currency hedge
- Competitive Gold Prices
- Credit facilities, based on your gold holdings with us
How does it work? An Example.
Assuming the current market price of Gold is at USD945 per ounce. With USD100,000 cash, you will be able to purchase 105.82 ounces of Gold (USD100,000/USD945 per ounce) and place this into a Citibank Gold Account.
|Scenario 1||Scenario 2|
|Gold Price||Assuming that the market price of Gold strengthens to USD960 per ounce||Assuming that the market price of Gold declines to USD930 per ounce|
|Value of Gold Account||USD101,587 (105.82 ounces x USD960 per ounce)||USD98,413 (105.82 ounces x USD930 per ounce)|
|Profit/Loss if Gold is converted back into USD||Profit of USD1,587||Loss of USD1,587|

You must be aware that a traditional Gold account does not accord any interest. A traditional Gold account is also not transferable and its holdings can only be sold through Citibank Singapore Limited.

Investments in gold are subject to price fluctuations which may provide both opportunities and risks. There is no yield or interest generated and a loss may be incurred due to fluctuations in its price. Physical delivery of gold, or physical deposit or withdrawal and wire transfer of gold to and from the Gold Account is not permitted. You should therefore determine whether any gold investment is suitable for you in the light of your investment objectives, your financial means and your risk profile. Investments in Gold are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Investment products including Gold Accounts and gold trading are not available to U.S. persons and may not be available in all jurisdictions. Citibank Singapore Limited is acting as principal in buying or selling the gold in your Gold Account.
Deposit Insurance Scheme - Singapore dollar deposits of non-bank depositors are insured by the Singapore Deposit Insurance Corporation, for up to S$50,000 in aggregate per depositor per Scheme member by law.
