Altinvest expands investment portfolio with new gold product

Altinvest, a digital investment product of The Alternative Bank, has announced the launch of precious metal-gold investment on its digital platform which is investors’ alternative asset.

The firm said in a note that this is in response to the growing demand for alternative investment assets and a diversified portfolio for investors.

Mohammed Yunusa, director of digital business and innovations at The Alternative Bank, while speaking during the launch in Lagos remarked that the demand for a varied portfolio by its consumers led to the inclusion of gold investment offerings in the array of Altinvest’s existing portfolio.

“We are thrilled to announce the availability of Gold on the Altinvest app,” Yunusa said, adding that it has become clear that more retail investors are drawn to the possibility of investing in gold since it is low-risk and extremely profitable.

“We have made this feasible by selling actual physical gold that can be delivered to everyone when they need it at competitive rates and, more importantly, securely on our Altinvest app.

“This exciting development reaffirms our commitment to guiding our investors on the right track on this journey of building wealth without compromising on their ethics or beliefs,” he said.

“Our priority is to drive mass adoption of this commodity at affordable ticket sizes,” he said.

He stated that someone can acquire as little as 1 gram of gold at the best rates on Altinvest and be issued a certificate of ownership which makes the person the owner of a piece of gold.
