Investments in securities through the Unifimoney Inc. and Unifimoney RIA Inc account are:
Not FDIC Insured | May Lose Value | No Bank Guarantee
Yes. All investments on Unifimoney are for fully allocated ownership in physical precious metals. This means the metals are held “f/b/o”(for the benefit of) in your name and are subject to the rules of bailment. I.e. the metals are your asset, not that of Unifimoney.
As part of that, you can take delivery of your physical metals at any time. Just request a quote for delivery in our app. Because we offer the convenience of “fractional” investment in some physical precious metals products, you may want or need to convert them to take delivery in common smaller coins and bars.
In order to provide the best pricing and liquidity to our customers, we utilize multiple vaults for the safekeeping of your assets. All vaults are in the U.S., and operated by independent third-party security firms specializing in precious metals, including Brinks, Loomis, and IDS. The assets are reconciled daily, independently audited, and fully insured for their replacement value at all times.
Trading fees are already embedded in the price when you buy and sell but it is typically 0.50% above our costs, separate fees are charged for storage and delivery (if chosen). We aim to provide the best value fractional precious metals solution in the market.
Insured storage fees are calculated based on the value of your assets, similar to an exchange traded fund or mutual fund. The rate is 70 basis points (0.70%) annually for gold or platinum and 80 basis points (0.80%) for silver.
Fees are calculated and accrue on a daily basis based on the sale value of the metals at the end of the trading day, and are charged monthly (or when you decide to take delivery of your metals, on a prorata basis). There is no minimum fee for storage, making it economical for all size accounts.
Incredibly secure. Unifimoney’s precious metals program is operated by the preeminent name in physical asset security and logistics GBi (www.bullioninternational.com). The same vault network provider is used as the world’s largest wealth managers, who store billions of dollars in precious metals on behalf of clients. Every single ounce of metal is accounted for at all times, with fully independent audits of the vaults and all financials. Our partners are subject to strict security and technology requirements and undergo regular information security audits as well.
The physical metals themselves are stored with the preeminent names in security: Brinks, Loomis, and IDS. They are under 24x7 surveillance, armed guard, strictly at class 3 vault locations, and fully insured at all times.
Initially fractional Gold, Silver and Platinum with more metals and products coming soon including coins and whole bar.
Currently, we offer customers the ability to invest in the lowest spread precious metals available on the market, the same ‘good delivery bars’ traded on physical metals around the world from London’s LBMA to the Comex in NY to Shanghai. But, with the convenience of being able to buy any amount you want, down to the penny. This allows our investors to own real physical precious metals, without all the risks and complexities of paper gold derivatives, available for purchase or sale around the clock online.
These low spread holdings can also be converted on demand into individual coins and small bars convenient for delivery, including as U.S. Mint American Gold and Silver Eagles, the Royal Canadian Mint Gold and Silver Maple Leaf, as well as low cost private minted silver rounds and gold or silver bars. This mix of metals provides the best value and best liquidity available in the precious metals markets globally today.
In the future, we plan to expand the offering to include additional investor-brade bullion products.
We are adding whole bar and coin in the near future. Sign up for our newsletter to hear the latest updates.
Today, you can invest in fractionally allocated bars for storage in our network of vaults – convertible at any time for delivery as whole bars and whole coins. This keeps prices low and spreads tight, allowing investors to make the most gain on their investments possible when they are in storage, along with the flexibility to take delivery for any reason.
In the future we do plan to expand the vaulted offerings to include specific coins and bars also in storage, not just for delivery, and an interface to order just for delivery, for those cases where an investor would rather direct their dollars to a specific form of bullion. For now, we believe the fractional allocated program best serves the overwhelming majority of investors who just want access to physical gold and silver prices without the counterparty risks of financial derivatives – a hedge for their exposure to other asset classes.
