Tatra banka has offered the option to trade in physical investment gold since September 2009, when it opened this product to its private banking clients as the first bank in Slovakia without the need for a mediator.
Investment in physical gold is a form of depositing of available cash or extending your portfolio with risk diversification. The simplest way to do this is to turn to your private banker. We will take care of the rest.
The bank only trades in the selected types of investment gold. The gold bars and coins are produced by an Austrian mint (Münze Österreich AG) with registered seat in Vienna. We offer gold bars with the weight of 1 g, 2 g, 5 g, 10 g, 20 g, 50 g, 100 g, 250 g, 500 g, and 1,000 g, bearing the mint mark of Münze Österreich, with the purity of 999.9/1,000, the logo of the expert and producer Argor Heraeus SA and the gold bar unique number.
Tatra banka also offers gold coins. The demand for them grows mainly before Christmas season, as they represent a rather unconventional but valuable present. The gold coins are also produced by an Austrian mint Münze Österreich AG with registered seat Vienna. At Tatra banka you can purchase gold coins Wiener Philharmoniker with the weight of 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 troy ounce and purity of 999.9/1,000 (1 troy ounce = 31.103 g).
When you are considering the purchase of investment gold, we recommend that you contact your private banker. They will negotiate the details based on your required investment and sign a purchase contract.
The purchase price includes costs related to investment gold insurance and transportation to the place of delivery.
Your physical investment gold will be delivered within thirty days of the transaction making in the private banking premises at Gorkého street in Bratislava. Upon the takeover you will receive a written confirmation of the investment gold purchase.
As a private client you can use the option to have the physical investment gold kept in the safe-deposit boxes located in the private banking premises. If you decide to keep the gold in another way, the bank does not ensure its repurchase.
The bank will repurchase the physical investment gold only if you obtained it from Tatra banka and it has been stored in your safe-deposit box at the same location where it was delivered for the whole period since its takeover. After accepting the price your private banker will make a contractual documentation, you will hand-over the physical investment gold being sold to the bank, and the bank will confirm its acceptance.
