Retail Gold Investment Principles

The World Gold Council has created a set of principles for the retail gold market, the Retail Gold Investment Principles. These Principles are designed to set the bar for product providers across the market and encourage retail investors to place their trust in gold. It is envisaged that greater trust will benefit customers and product providers alike, creating value and driving demand across the retail gold industry.

The Principles are aimed primarily at the providers of unregulated gold investment products, encouraging best practice, so that customers can feel confident in this important market segment.

We believe that the retail gold industry will only fulfil its potential if it is trusted by investors. Alignment with the Principles and implementation of best practice are key to fostering that trust.

Taking part in a consultation on the Retail Gold Investment Principles

This survey asks for your feedback on each of the draft Principles and the supporting commitments. We are grateful for your time and believe it should take under 10 minutes to complete. 
Following external consultation, the World Gold Council  will publish the Principles and, in parallel, initiate an extensive period of market engagement to agree how the Principles should be operationalised on a region by region basis and in alignment with localised market models and best practices.
