Spreads are the primary hidden cost of investing in gold. Gold investors typically pay a 2%-10% spread on gold’s spot price in addition to transaction costs. We are able to keep spreads close to 0 by cutting out 70% of the traditional gold supply chain. Less people take a cut of your investment, so you get the best prices every time.
Taxes are another major cost of buying gold. All gold investment vehicles are taxed at a 28% long-term capital gains tax rate, except Vaulted. Please consult a tax professional for more details on the tax implications of your capital gains in Vaulted.
*Your Vaulted advisor can explain how Vaulted is taxed compared to other investment vehicles, however all investors should also consult a tax professional.*
We are able to lower fees by using cutting-edge technology, eliminating unnecessary middlemen, keeping overhead costs low, and storing any vaulted gold bars directly at their manufacturer, the Royal Canadian Mint. We pass those efficiencies on to you.
