What makes SGB the best gold investment?

A Sovereign Gold Bond is probably the best gold investment one can make and there are several reasons to it. First, there’s no GST, no capital gains on maturity, and no making charges and you get an additional 2.5% fixed interest from RBI upon your investment (on top of the natural appreciation of your gold value)

The amount generated from this 2.5% interest is taxable. However, the other benefits of SGB cover up for this and ensure your investment remains profitable.

You can even use SGB as collateral for several loans. Speaking of loans, you might want to consider reading our old but super valuable article on Home Loans and How to Save on EMI
