Gefion Capital Launches Gold-Denominated Note to Invest in Monetary Metals' Gold Leases and Bonds

Scottsdale, Arizona and Zurich, Switzerland – January 10, 2024Monetary Metals is pleased to report that Gefion Capital AG has launched the Monetary Metals® Diversified Gold Income Note. The note seeks to deliver a 6% to 8% net return on gold by investing in Monetary Metals’ gold leases and gold bonds.

The Luxembourg domiciled note is only available to qualified, non-US investors. Both Gefion and Monetary Metals see substantial demand for the note among European and Middle Eastern clientele. 

Historically, Monetary Metals’ gold leases have paid between 2-5% interest on gold. Gold bonds offer higher yields, between 819% on gold. Heini Beretta, a seasoned financial professional with over 25 years’ experience, will be the note’s portfolio manager and investment advisor.  

“Gold has traditionally been a fundamental component in Swiss portfolios given its unique qualities during credit crises,” said Heini Beretta.

“I am proud to bring this groundbreaking security to the market. It amplifies the diversification benefit and generates attractive returns even in sideways markets. It’s only because of Monetary Metals’ innovation that we could sufficiently diversify the credit risk to bring a truly unique offering to discerning investors.”

Keith Weiner, CEO of Monetary Metals commented,

“This product marks yet another company milestone. The note brings new capital to our Gold Yield Marketplace™ and accelerates our growth.” 

Gefion Capital AG received permission from Swiss regulator FINMA to manage the Note which is open for subscriptions until 15:00 CET Monday, February 26.

About the Note

The Monetary Metals® Diversified Gold Income Note offering is a private placement. The note is priced in gold, keeps 100% of its principal denominated in gold, and accrues interest on gold. It earns this return by leasing and lending gold to a portfolio of gold-related businesses via the Monetary Metals Gold Yield Marketplace™. A Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) holds the gold collateral backing the gold note. There is no financial leverage on the SPV, and returns are derived from credit risk and liquidity premia.
