Frankfurt am Main, 23 May 2018: Degussa Goldhandel GmbH is now cooperating with precious metal retailer GoldSilver Central Pte Ltd in Singapore. The partnership between both providers who are leaders in their respective markets covers the distribution of Degussa bullion bars as well as gift items made out of gold and silver. GoldSilver Central will offer the products of Europe“s biggest precious metal retailer in its own stores as well as via its online shop ( www.goldsilvercentral.com.sg).

The cooperation with the Singaporean precious metal specialist positions the presence of Degussa and its products in the Asian region on a broader basis and will open up new growth potential.

„Due to the cooperation with GoldSilver Central, we are able to give new impetus to our presence in Asia,“ said Raphael Scherer, Chief International Officer (CIO) and member of the Degussa management board. „With this step we also want to strengthen our position in Singapore, one of the most important precious metal trading centres in Asia and offer local customers access to the Degussa gold and silver bars as well as our lifestyle items.“

Since its launch in 2011, Degussa has developed into the European market leader amongst the independent precious metal retailers with branches in ten sites in Germany as well as internationally in Zurich, Geneva and Madrid. Furthermore, in 2013 the company also took over London precious metals company Sharps Pixley.

„We are extremely proud to be part of this collaboration with Degussa and are looking forward to exploring new strategies for providing enhanced precious metals investment solutions in Asia,“ said Brian Lan, Managing Director of GoldSilver Central. „The start of this partnership enables both companies to leverage on each other for more resources to create new business opportunities and most importantly, to benefit Precious Metals Investors on a regional scale.“

GoldSilver Central was also established in 2011, in Singapore, and specialises in the physical trading of gold, silver and platinum for both individuals and businesses. Hereby the company offers a wide range of products and services with the aim of offering private investors the opportunity to invest in precious metals at competitive prices such as the first spot deliverable precious metals platform – GSC Live!.

Degussa Goldhandel expands into the Asian market: new branch office opened in Singapore

Degussa branch office Singapore

Frankfurt am Main, 29 October 2015: Degussa Goldhandel GmbH is represented by a branch office in Singapore with immediate effect. The company is thus pushing ahead with its national and international expansion strategy. In addition to its ten locations in Germany and three other European representative offices in Madrid, Zürich and Geneva, Europe’s largest precious metals trader is now also active in the Asian gold market. Numerous guests attended the opening celebrations on Wednesday evening, including Dr Michael Witter, the Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany, and were provided with an initial insight into the services offered and the new premises.

„Within just a few decades, Singapore has progressed from being an emerging country into a highly developed industrial nation and enjoys a reputation as a highly significant international financial centre. Due to its dynamic economy and stable political system, Singapore is very popular with Asian investors especially“, explains Raphael Scherer, Chief International Officer (CIO) of Degussa Goldhandel GmbH and responsible for the international development of the precious metal trader. „For our international expansion strategy, with which we have been continuously pressing ahead since 2013, the Asian market represents the next logical step after the locations we have opened in Europe. The high demand in the investment field and the popularity of gold products with the local customers make Singapore a location that we regard as having a high growth potential for Degussa.“

The branch office is located in Orchard Road, the most famous shopping street in the Southeast Asian metropolis. The customer can choose from Degussa’s varied product portfolio presented on almost 300 square metres of floor space. For example, precious metal investment products, such as the classic Degussa gold and silver bars, and investment coins such as the Krugerrand and Canadian Maple Leaf are on offer. In addition, an extensive range of gifts made of gold, special medals and limited Degussa thaler complete the product line. Customers also have access to a total of 1,300 safety deposit boxes that guarantee secure storage of the precious metals or other objects of value purchased.

Furthermore, Degussa offers its new customers in Singapore a very special highlight: until the end of this year, the world-renowned „Industry Collection of Gold Bars Worldwide“, the so-called „Rothschild collection“ which is now part of the „Collection Degussa“, will be on display in the Singapore branch office. It is the most significant and largest collection of contemporary gold bars in the world and comprises over one thousand artistically and historically valuable bars from 145 manufacturers in 35 countries. The total weight of the collection is somewhat in excess of 230 kilograms of pure gold and represents an estimated material value of EUR seven million.

Degussa increases gold sales in 2015 by up to 50 per cent compared with the first half of the previous year

Degussa increases gold sales in 2015 by up to 50 per cent compared with the first half of the previous year

Frankfurt am Main, 7 July 2015 – The German precious metals trading company Degussa Goldhandel GmbH reports a very significant increase in physical gold investments in the first half of 2015. Compared to 2014, the increase in sales on individual months was a minimum of 30 per cent and in most cases in excess of 50 per cent higher than the previous year. In June the increase in sales amounted to even a surplus of nearly 60 per cent, which makes it the fifth highest monthly balance of the recent three and a half years. According to Degussa CEO Wolfgang Wrzesniok-Rossbach, this is most probably related to the worsening crisis in Greece. The total sales for the Degussa Group amounted to substantially over 700 million euros during the first half of 2015.

The significant increase in demand was attributed by Degussa to the ongoing uncertainty of investors with respect to the fragile financial markets. The most popular products among German investors are traditionally the Krügerrand gold coins as well as the one troy ounce, 100 gram and 250 gram gold bars bearing the Degussa stamp.

„Whilst the acute crisis in Greece is the most important driver for gold demand in Germany at the moment, other reasons have been the general weakness of the Euro, which started already at the beginning of the year, as well as the zero interest rate environment,“ says Wrzesniok-Rossbach.

German investors did not fare too bad with gold holdings this year: Those who had bought physical gold at the start of 2015 were able to lock in a double-digit gain in the value of their gold holdings by the end of June 2015. „Since the start of the year, the gold price in euro terms has at times increased by as much as 15 per cent. With that number, gold fared as good as other competing asset classes, such as equity,“ says Wrzesniok-Rossbach. „Many customers saw the purchase of gold also as an attractive alternative to holding cash.“

The growing interest of German investors in gold is also evidenced by the recently published figures from the World Gold Council (WGC), the international marketing organisation for the gold industry, with regards to the global demand situation. The relevant report, „Gold Demand Trends Q1 2015“, shows German gold sales at 32.2 tons for the first quarter of this year, which means a year-on-year increase of 20 per cent. According to the WGC study, Germany is now the world’s third largest market for gold bars and coins, behind China and only just behind India.

Degussa branch office Geneva (Source: @Degussa Goldhandel)

Zurich/ Geneva, 25 June 2015 – Degussa Goldhandel AG Switzerland has opened a branch office in Geneva and, with its head office in Zurich, is therefore now represented in the two largest cities in Switzerland. Close to the waterside promenade at Lake Geneva, Degussa will from now on offer its customers the entire range of its goods and services, from investment products such as gold bars and coins to limited-edition plaques and gift products. Safe-deposit boxes in seven different sizes are available in a highly-modern depot for the safe storage of precious metals and other valuables – irrespective of whether they were purchased at Degussa.

Andreas Hablützel, CEO of Degussa Goldhandel AG says: „For us as the largest bullion dealer in Switzerland, the city of Geneva is an ideal location for our second branch office because of its significance as a financial metropolis, its high internationality and its central geographic position. We see a high potential demand, not only in the area of bullion investment, but also for our gift products such as for example pieces of jewellery, silver pens and our exclusive collection of gold watches.“

Hablützel adds that the opening of the new branch office in Geneva is also entirely consistent with the international expansion strategy of the parent company, the Degussa Goldhandel group. The group is now the market leader in Europe and has offices in Germany, Switzerland, London and Madrid. „We are also focusing more on developing global markets, for example in Asia and South America; accordingly a Degussa branch in Singapore will be opening this summer“, says Hablützel.

Degussa“s Geneva office also offers its full range of physical bullion. Investment bars and coins in gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium are available in a variety of weight categories. A specially designed salesroom in the shop is dedicated to the wide range of gift products and presents the different products clearly. Customers also have the opportunity to purchase special motif bars and limited-edition medals as well as special collections and numismatic coins. Customers can also have their old gold, for example pieces of jewellery that they no longer wear, valued by Degussa experts and if they wish they can sell them directly on-site.

The branch office is located at Quai du Mont-Blanc 5. It is open from Monday to Friday from 09:00 hrs to 17:00 hrs and can be contacted by telephone on +41 (0)22 908 14 00.

German Investors buy significantly more Gold – Degussa experiences record sales this November

German Investors buy significantly more Gold - Degussa experiences record sales this November

(Source: @Degussa Goldhandel)

Frankfurt am Main, 23rd December, 2014 – Compared to the previous months, German investors have bought significantly more precious metals in November. Both the demand for gold and for silver have risen. Degussa estimates the total sale of gold in November to be around 15 tons, with a value of about 450 million Euro, approximately 40% above the monthly average this year. Despite the record month of November, Degussa expects a slight decline in total for the year 2014 in Germany, from 121 tons in 2013, down to 116 tons.

The high demand for gold in the past months has also elevated the Degussa business itself. In November, Degussa was able to record the strongest revenues since 2011. The high demand for investment metals was evident in the Degussa branch offices, as well as in its online store. Gold items, especially medium-sized bars, weighing an ounce, one hundred grams or up to 250 grams, are still extremely popular. Silver is also very popular, shown by the fact that one ounce investment coins from Canada and Australia were bought very frequently.

„The most important reason for institutional and private investors to buy precious metals is the prevailing insecurity concerning the further development of the economy and financial industry“, explains Wolfgang Wrzesniok-Roßbach, CEO and speaker for the Degussa management. „We have not noticed any „panic buying“, which we did when the financial crisis was at its peak. Investors now prefer to shift money within their portfolios. The amount of people who invest for the first time is remarkably high as well“.

The demand for gold and silver within the last weeks was, according to Degussa, also triggered by the temporary price drop. Wolfgang Wrzesniok-Roßbach states: „Nowadays investors are well-informed and make sure to take advantage of a reasonable purchase price“.

The increased demand for precious metals led to considerably longer delivery periods on the side of the gold producers and state mints, since the demand also grew stronger on the US and Asian markets. The shortage of supplies of the South African Krugerrand led to a temporary doubling of the premium, which as the gold price fell, caused a slower dropping of coin prices than the international gold price noted in London.

„Degussa is not affected by the current shortages“, says Wolfgang Wrzesniok-Roßbach. „Through our expanded stock and the exclusive reservation of production capacity with the manufacturers, we can always guarantee to deliver the items on time“.

The other Degussa business branches are seeing significant developments as well, for example the increasing business in scrap gold. There is also a noticeably higher demand for the Degussa storage service, since many new customers take advantage of a centralised, but still customer-assigned, storing of precious metals. Hence almost all customers favour domestic storage.

Degussa acquires world’s largest collection of gold bars

Degussa acquires world

Part of the Industry Collection of Gold Bars Worldwide

Frankfurt/Main, 19 May 2014 – Degussa Goldhandel GmbH has acquired „The Industry Collection of Gold Bars Worldwide“, the largest and most important collection of contemporary gold bars worldwide. It includes over one thousand culturally and historically important bars of 145 manufacturers from 35 countries and was founded in 1993 by N.M. Rothschild & Sons (Australia) Limited. The collection, which is also often referred to as the „Rothschild Collection“, is of important historical and cultural significance for the gold industry as it illustrates the extraordinary variety of gold bars from all over the world.

The total weight of the collection is slightly more than 230 kilogrammes of fine gold, with a pure market value of approximately seven million Euros (approximately ten million US Dollar).

The Australian arm of legendary merchant bank N.M. Rothschild & Sons had been the owner and administrator of the Industry Collection since its establishment in 1993 and held that role until the Rothschild Group withdrew from the gold market in 2004. In 2005 the collection moved into the custodianship of the Western Australian Mint, widely known as „The Perth Mint“, with Grendon International Research Pty Ltd acting as the curator, as it had done since 1993.

In addition to the presentations at „The Perth Mint“ in Western Australia, the collection has been shown at various exhibitions across Europe, North and South America and Asia during the last twenty years.

The acquisition of the collection will reinforce Degussa“s role as a leading player in the German and international gold and precious metals trading world and further arouse public interest in the topic of gold and precious metals.

„By acquiring this extraordinary collection, Degussa has made a significant step in expanding the already existing „Degussa Collection““, says Wolfgang Wrzesniok-Rossbach, CEO of Degussa. „We had already accumulated a wide variety of historical bars in the last three years, ranging from artefacts that originate in the Bronze Age, the Roman Empire, the Dark Age and – as one of the highlights – from a number of treasures recovered from sunken ships such as the Atocha, a Spanish galleon that sank in a hurricane off the coast of Florida in 1622.“

As a result of the recent acquisition the Degussa Collection now also offers a most valuable insight in the area of contemporary investment bars from the 20th century. In addition to the Rothschild Collection Degussa has also added a wide variety of other items, like crucibles, dore samples, bar moulds and other periphery objects that illustrate the world of gold production and fabrication per se. Selected pieces from the collection will be shown, among others, at temporary exhibitions in Degussa offices in Germany, Switzerland and England in the future. Besides that, the collection will also be made available on a loan-basis to national and international exhibitors who would be interested in this varied assemblage.

Forum 50plus: Auch im Mai berät mStore Silver Surfer ausgezeichnet generationenfreundlich

Beim Apple Premium Reseller lernen Menschen über 50 den sicheren Umgang mit Computern und Internet

Mai 2014 – Wie lässt sich ein E-Mail-Postfach einrichten oder Spam erkennen? Die Generation 50plus hat großes Interesse an digitaler Technik, ist sich oft aber unsicher. mStore lädt die Junggebliebenen deshalb ein, beim Forum 50plus ihre Medienkompetenzen zu vertiefen und Fragen zum Umgang mit der Technik zu stellen. Am Donnerstag, den 15. Mai, findet erneut bundesweit in allen mStore-Filialen von 16.00 bis 18.00 Uhr eine kostenlose Schulung für die Silver Surfer statt.

In diesem Rahmen ist es auch möglich, den eigenen Computer von den mStore-Experten auf Viren und Sicherheitslücken untersuchen zu lassen. mStore bietet drei Rundum-sorglos-Pakete ab 25 Euro für die IT-Sicherheit an. Als kostenloser Service gehört zum IT-Sicherheits-Check eine Hardwarediagnose des Computers sowie dessen Reinigung.

Beim Forum 50plus bietet mStore Menschen über 50 die Möglichkeit, sich persönlich beraten zu lassen und bei Kaffee und Kuchen mit Gleichgesinnten auszutauschen. Die zertifizierten Mitarbeiter des Apple Premium Resellers zeigen, wie iPhone oder Mac funktionieren und wofür sie sich einsetzen lassen – von der Suche im Internet bis zur Bedienung nützlicher Programme. Sie helfen bei Installationen, geben Tipps und Tricks zu den Funktionen der Geräte und beantworten Fragen zu Datensicherheit. Die Besucher des Forum 50plus haben auch die Möglichkeit, iPads und Macs zu testen.

Seit mehr als 20 Jahren berät mStore zuverlässig Menschen jeden Alters rund um Apple-Technik – und das sogar „Ausgezeichnet Generationenfreundlich“. Dieses Qualitätszeichen für generationenfreundliche Geschäfte wurde dem Apple Premium Reseller für sein Engagement mit dem Forum 50plus vom Handelsverband Berlin-Brandenburg e.V. verliehen.

Das Forum 50plus findet regelmäßig statt – meist jeden dritten Donnerstag im Monat.

BMG kündigt Silver Maple Leaf-Münzen an

BMG kündigt Silver Maple Leaf-Münzen an

(Mynewsdesk) LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM — (Marketwired) — 04/10/14 — Das kanadische Unternehmen BMG teilt mit, dass es sein Portfolio um ein weiteres Produkt erweitert hat: Canadian Maple Leaf Silber-Münzen. Sie werden in sogenannten Monster Boxes mit jeweils fünfhundert Münzen mit je einer Unze angeboten und von der Royal Canadian Mint geprägt und versiegelt, um die Echtheit der enthaltenen Münzen zu garantieren. Die Monster Boxes ergänzen die fünf Produkte, die derzeit von BMG angeboten werden: Goldbarren mit 1 Kilogramm, 100 Unzen und 400 Unzen sowie Silberbarren mit 1000 Unzen und Platinbarren mit 50 Unzen.

Silver Maple Leaf-Münzen bestehen aus Feinsilber mit einem Feingehalt von 0,9999 und werden weltweit als der „Rolls Royce“ unter den Silbermünzen geschätzt. Münzen werden oft als wirtschaftlich weniger interessant betrachtet als die größeren Barren, tatsächlich jedoch bieten sie einige Vorteile. Die Aufpreise bei Münzen steigen deutlich während Versorgungsengpässen oder in Zeiten steigender Nachfrage, wodurch höhere Kapitalgewinne realisiert und eine größere Kaufkraft als bei den größeren Barren erzielt werden können.

Die Kunden können ihre Edelmetallmünzen entweder in speziellen Depots lagern oder direkt entgegennehmen. Die Monster Boxes haben ein Siegel mit Seriennummer und enthalten eine Urkunde, in der die Namen des Eigentümers und des Veredlers, das Gewicht, der Reinheitsgrad und die Seriennummer jeder Box angeführt sind. Silbermünzen und Silberbarren, die in Kanada gelagert werden, unterliegen zudem unabhängig vom Wohnsitz des Eigentümers keiner Mehrwertsteuer.

Von besonderer Bedeutung wird dies für die britische Bevölkerung sein, da Monster Boxes so wie alle anderen BullionBars?-Produkte über den neuen Service von BMG im Vereinigten Königreich verfügbar sind. Wenn BullionBars?-Produkte in Kanada gelagert werden, unterliegen sie nicht der Mehrwertsteuer. BMG hat seinen Kunden stets empfohlen, sich in allen drei Währungsedelmetallen zu engagieren — Gold, Silber und Platin — und zugleich eine geografische Diversifizierung ihrer Anlagen vorzunehmen. Jedes Edelmetall dient des Erhalts der Kaufkraft von Geldvermögen, und behauptet zugleich die einzigartigen Wareneigenschaften, die den Preis der einzelnen Edelmetalle beeinflussen.

Von den drei Metallen ist Silber am billigsten und die praktischste Geldform für alltägliche Ausgaben in Zeiten von Wirtschaftskrisen oder Übergangsphasen. Die kanadischen Silver Maple Leaf-Münzen sind weltweit erkennbar und werden sich in solchen Krisenszenarien von unschätzbarem Wert erweisen.

Über Bullion Management Group Inc. Die in Toronto ansässige Bullion Management Group Inc. (BMG) ist ein Managementunternehmen für Edelmetallbarren und Münzen. BMG ist ein international führender Anbieter von sicheren, kostengünstigen und transparenten Formen des Kaufs und der Lagerung von Edelmetallbarren und Anlagemünzen. Das Unternehmen ist Mitglied der London Bullion Market Association (LBMA).
