As mentioned, this second part is neither compulsory nor an expected action for you to take upon receiving the electronic Vault Warrant.
If you are currently with an ABX Member / Broker that suggests otherwise, it would be prudent to change to another such as GoldVu, where your best interests are held first.
I personally prefer to have my bullion not only fully allocated but also segregated as simple peace-of-mind and an extra buffer to unforeseen risks. With GoldVu, you will never be made felt to be obliged to pledge your silver or gold bullion.
However, there are many that welcome the opportunity to be able to take advantage of using their physical precious metals to raise funds. These funds could then be used to 'work' for you, providing you the prospect of generating an income that doesn't occur with inert bullion.
The flexibility that this offers our clients is fantastic and offers you the best of both worlds – privately vaulted physical precious metals and working cash.
To raise margin capital, all you have to do is to contact GoldVu, highlighting which eVWs you want to pledge and we can then discuss the details and terms of the collateral contract.
Please be clear that you could lose your pledged precious metal if you fail to meet the terms of the contract.
Don’t take risks and make sure that you are able to meet the terms before agreeing to them, and make sure you understand the instruments that you are going to invest your raised capital into.
If in doubt, always seek advice from an accredited financial advisor.
