With the Chinese New Year approaching rapidly, it’s no surprise that many of us have our heads filled with creamy-red hongbaos, steaming Chinese dumplings and sticky rice cakes. If you’re celebrating this holiday, however, your head is bound to be filled with another matter of equal importance - giving the perfect Chinese New Year gift.

If you’re stuck for ideas and don’t have the luxury of time, take a look at our gift-giving dos and don’ts for all you need to know before you pick the perfect gift. Good luck!

Do think about the colour of your gifts

Given the importance ascribed to colours in Chinese culture, especially to gold, red and yellow, giving gifts in these colours can make you an instant party favourite.

If you’re trying to be a little creative with your gift-giving this year and still want to give gifts considered to be lucky, gold is always a good way to go. The best part is that you no longer have to shell out a mini fortune to make a good impression - with SendGold, you can now transfer gold via our app to your loved ones this Chinese New Year, for just about any amount you can afford

Whatever you decide to get, check if they have variations of it in gold, red or yellow for a truly prosperous gift. 

Don’t forget to do some research on CNY gifts - some are considered inauspicious

As with every culture, certain gift items don’t ring a tiding of wealth and prosperity - quite the opposite, in fact. 

Among the list of tabooed gifts for the new year include shoes, pears, fans, umbrellas and clocks or watches. While the list doesn’t end there, these are a few items that can cause quite a stir if they’re unwrapped at a Chinese New Year party. 

Make sure you’re the talk of the party, but for all the right reasons!

Don’t give gifts in sets of four

Another major gift-giving faux pas is giving someone a gift that comes in a set of four. This is because the word ‘four’ sounds similar to the word ‘death’ when stated in Mandarin

If you’re eager to give someone special a gift set though, you can always give them something in pairs of two or eight, which are considered to be much luckier and prosperous. ‘Eight’, when pronounced in Mandarin sounds like the word that means ‘to prosper’.

Do use both hands when presenting your gift

In addition to giving your gift plenty of thought, you also need to make sure that you present it in the right way. 

When exchanging gifts this Chinese New Year, make sure you use both hands as a sign of respect to the other person. In the same way, if you receive any gift, use both hands as well. 

Following these simple but deeply-revered customs will help you engage more meaningful on this occasion.

Don’t open your gifts right away

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs. 

Nail gift-giving this Chinese New Year with SendGold - your partner in prosperity

This Chinese New Year, ensure that your loved ones revel in the traditions and joy of this auspicious occasion with the right gifts and by following all its revered traditions. 

Whether you’re gifting generously-stuffed hongbaos, a delectable array of fresh fruit or digital gold, give each gift with complete goodwill and generosity to experience the true joy of this occasion.

In a previous blog post we outlined some of the fundamental differences between owning physical gold and owning gold derivatives like ETFs:

https://www.sendgold.com/gold-etf-it-always-pays-to-read-the-fine-print/

In a research note to their clients last week major global bank ABN AMRO takes this distinction a step further. Rather than their being one gold price, they suggest that in practice there are actually two: physical gold and gold derivatives.

https://insights.abnamro.nl/en/2019/12/a-world-with-two-gold-prices/

“In times of financial crisis” the author writes, “the price representing physical gold will increase much faster than its non-physical counterpart”.  

And for a major bank dealing almost exclusively in paper-based accounts and investments their conclusion is also notable, and echoes what we at SendGold believe: “When there is zero trust in the financial system, the only safe option for investors is still physical gold”.

SendGold receives investment from Melbourne-based family offices led by leading wealth management firm EL&C Baillieu.

SendGold is pleased to announce that it has received an investment from several Melbourne-based family offices in a round led by EL&C Baillieu.  This investment is in addition to the current crowdsourced funding (CSF) round that is open on the Birchal funding platform until Thursday 19th December.

"In my opinion, fiat currencies are faith documents; crypto currencies are faith data signals”, stated Andrew Hellier, EL&C Baillieu. ”However with simple commodity exchange in the palm of your hand, based on 100% physical gold, SendGold may just be onto something.”

Funds raised will be used to drive transaction volume over the next 12 months. Just this week SendGold went live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

Jodi Stanton, SendGold CEO said, "More and more the penny is dropping for consumers as it has been for sophisticted investors. EC&L Baillieu has been through every market high and low from as far back as 1889. We are delighted to have such a pretigious wealth management firm in our corner." 

Hellier continued, "If the engine of fintech disruption is technology, the fuel of fintech disruption is the  growing customer awareness of unjustifiable intermediary costs. Good ideas always find an audience.”

Yesterday Goldman Sachs released a research report to their largest clients, saying the case for owning gold is now “as strong as ever”. 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/goldman-says-case-diversifying-gold-202759315.html

But towards the back of the Goldman report was an interesting chart.

We’re always on the lookout for new data points that help our customers understand what’s happening in the gold market.

Many analysts follow the inflows of physical gold into ETF products. They use this data to gauge institutional gold demand. ETF flows are shown as the black line on the following chart:

But what caught our eye, explained in the report, is the blue line on the chart.

Goldman analysts did the legwork of asking the major vaulting services (like Brink’s Global Services and G4S) and national customs regulators how much gold in total was actually flowing into their countries and vaults.

This is interesting because it captures gold demand by large investors that would otherwise not be reported elsewhere.

The conclusion is that large investors are adding significantly more to their gold holdings than has otherwise been reported.

With currency and trade wars around the globe and the shift in policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia to so-called “quantitative easing”, we agree with Goldman Sachs: the case for owning gold is getting stronger than ever.

SENDGOLD IS LIVE IN THE UAE!

SYDNEY - SendGold announced today that their digital gold money app is now live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

“We’re very excited to open SendGold to residents of the UAE as the first country in one of the world’s most important regions for consumer gold demand” said SendGold Executive Director Steve Bond.

“Dubai alone accounts for nearly 25% of world gold trade” Bond continued, “and the SendGold app makes it easier than ever to acquire gold at very competitive prices, use it for instant payments or gifts, or cash out to bank accounts in the local currency”.

The SendGold app is also targeted as a simple, fast, and cost-effective method for overseas workers and expats to send funds back home. The Dubai/India channel is a major remittances corridor and workers and investors in both countries prefer to hold gold over their local currencies, as these have had a track record of losing value over time.

In addition, the company can now finalise several commercial relationships with third party distrubiton partners in the region.

The price of gold has risen 17.9% in the last 12 months in the UAE, far outstripping the interest that could be earned in a typical bank account. In another key SendGold market, the gold price in Indian rupees is up 19.5% in the same period. SendGold payment transfers are instant, compared to bank transfers that can take 1-3 days.

One of the tools the company will use to promote SendGold in the UAE is their innovative augmented-reality game Gold Rush by SendGold, which gamifies customer awareness and acquisition in a way not previously seen in the gold industry.

Gold Rush enables the company to attract new users remotely, without the need for local bricks-and-mortar presence. “Gold Rush gives us global awareness reach at extremely low cost” said Bond. “It’s good fun, but it’s also good business”.

“With our platform approach we can typically launch in a new country in less than 10 days”, said Bond. “And the other countries in the region are also very strong gold buyers. We'll have more annoucements to follow soon."

With the Chinese New Year approaching rapidly, it’s no surprise that many of us have our heads filled with creamy-red hongbaos, steaming Chinese dumplings and sticky rice cakes. If you’re celebrating this holiday, however, your head is bound to be filled with another matter of equal importance - giving the perfect Chinese New Year gift.

If you’re stuck for ideas and don’t have the luxury of time, take a look at our gift-giving dos and don’ts for all you need to know before you pick the perfect gift. Good luck!

Do think about the colour of your gifts

Given the importance ascribed to colours in Chinese culture, especially to gold, red and yellow, giving gifts in these colours can make you an instant party favourite.

If you’re trying to be a little creative with your gift-giving this year and still want to give gifts considered to be lucky, gold is always a good way to go. The best part is that you no longer have to shell out a mini fortune to make a good impression - with SendGold, you can now transfer gold via our app to your loved ones this Chinese New Year, for just about any amount you can afford

Whatever you decide to get, check if they have variations of it in gold, red or yellow for a truly prosperous gift. 

Don’t forget to do some research on CNY gifts - some are considered inauspicious

As with every culture, certain gift items don’t ring a tiding of wealth and prosperity - quite the opposite, in fact. 

Among the list of tabooed gifts for the new year include shoes, pears, fans, umbrellas and clocks or watches. While the list doesn’t end there, these are a few items that can cause quite a stir if they’re unwrapped at a Chinese New Year party. 

Make sure you’re the talk of the party, but for all the right reasons!

Don’t give gifts in sets of four

Another major gift-giving faux pas is giving someone a gift that comes in a set of four. This is because the word ‘four’ sounds similar to the word ‘death’ when stated in Mandarin

If you’re eager to give someone special a gift set though, you can always give them something in pairs of two or eight, which are considered to be much luckier and prosperous. ‘Eight’, when pronounced in Mandarin sounds like the word that means ‘to prosper’.

Do use both hands when presenting your gift

In addition to giving your gift plenty of thought, you also need to make sure that you present it in the right way. 

When exchanging gifts this Chinese New Year, make sure you use both hands as a sign of respect to the other person. In the same way, if you receive any gift, use both hands as well. 

Following these simple but deeply-revered customs will help you engage more meaningful on this occasion.

Don’t open your gifts right away

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs. 

Nail gift-giving this Chinese New Year with SendGold - your partner in prosperity

This Chinese New Year, ensure that your loved ones revel in the traditions and joy of this auspicious occasion with the right gifts and by following all its revered traditions. 

Whether you’re gifting generously-stuffed hongbaos, a delectable array of fresh fruit or digital gold, give each gift with complete goodwill and generosity to experience the true joy of this occasion.

In a previous blog post we outlined some of the fundamental differences between owning physical gold and owning gold derivatives like ETFs:

https://www.sendgold.com/gold-etf-it-always-pays-to-read-the-fine-print/

In a research note to their clients last week major global bank ABN AMRO takes this distinction a step further. Rather than their being one gold price, they suggest that in practice there are actually two: physical gold and gold derivatives.

https://insights.abnamro.nl/en/2019/12/a-world-with-two-gold-prices/

“In times of financial crisis” the author writes, “the price representing physical gold will increase much faster than its non-physical counterpart”.  

And for a major bank dealing almost exclusively in paper-based accounts and investments their conclusion is also notable, and echoes what we at SendGold believe: “When there is zero trust in the financial system, the only safe option for investors is still physical gold”.

SendGold receives investment from Melbourne-based family offices led by leading wealth management firm EL&C Baillieu.

SendGold is pleased to announce that it has received an investment from several Melbourne-based family offices in a round led by EL&C Baillieu.  This investment is in addition to the current crowdsourced funding (CSF) round that is open on the Birchal funding platform until Thursday 19th December.

"In my opinion, fiat currencies are faith documents; crypto currencies are faith data signals”, stated Andrew Hellier, EL&C Baillieu. ”However with simple commodity exchange in the palm of your hand, based on 100% physical gold, SendGold may just be onto something.”

Funds raised will be used to drive transaction volume over the next 12 months. Just this week SendGold went live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

Jodi Stanton, SendGold CEO said, "More and more the penny is dropping for consumers as it has been for sophisticted investors. EC&L Baillieu has been through every market high and low from as far back as 1889. We are delighted to have such a pretigious wealth management firm in our corner." 

Hellier continued, "If the engine of fintech disruption is technology, the fuel of fintech disruption is the  growing customer awareness of unjustifiable intermediary costs. Good ideas always find an audience.”

Yesterday Goldman Sachs released a research report to their largest clients, saying the case for owning gold is now “as strong as ever”. 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/goldman-says-case-diversifying-gold-202759315.html

But towards the back of the Goldman report was an interesting chart.

We’re always on the lookout for new data points that help our customers understand what’s happening in the gold market.

Many analysts follow the inflows of physical gold into ETF products. They use this data to gauge institutional gold demand. ETF flows are shown as the black line on the following chart:

But what caught our eye, explained in the report, is the blue line on the chart.

Goldman analysts did the legwork of asking the major vaulting services (like Brink’s Global Services and G4S) and national customs regulators how much gold in total was actually flowing into their countries and vaults.

This is interesting because it captures gold demand by large investors that would otherwise not be reported elsewhere.

The conclusion is that large investors are adding significantly more to their gold holdings than has otherwise been reported.

With currency and trade wars around the globe and the shift in policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia to so-called “quantitative easing”, we agree with Goldman Sachs: the case for owning gold is getting stronger than ever.

SENDGOLD IS LIVE IN THE UAE!

SYDNEY - SendGold announced today that their digital gold money app is now live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

“We’re very excited to open SendGold to residents of the UAE as the first country in one of the world’s most important regions for consumer gold demand” said SendGold Executive Director Steve Bond.

“Dubai alone accounts for nearly 25% of world gold trade” Bond continued, “and the SendGold app makes it easier than ever to acquire gold at very competitive prices, use it for instant payments or gifts, or cash out to bank accounts in the local currency”.

The SendGold app is also targeted as a simple, fast, and cost-effective method for overseas workers and expats to send funds back home. The Dubai/India channel is a major remittances corridor and workers and investors in both countries prefer to hold gold over their local currencies, as these have had a track record of losing value over time.

In addition, the company can now finalise several commercial relationships with third party distrubiton partners in the region.

The price of gold has risen 17.9% in the last 12 months in the UAE, far outstripping the interest that could be earned in a typical bank account. In another key SendGold market, the gold price in Indian rupees is up 19.5% in the same period. SendGold payment transfers are instant, compared to bank transfers that can take 1-3 days.

One of the tools the company will use to promote SendGold in the UAE is their innovative augmented-reality game Gold Rush by SendGold, which gamifies customer awareness and acquisition in a way not previously seen in the gold industry.

Gold Rush enables the company to attract new users remotely, without the need for local bricks-and-mortar presence. “Gold Rush gives us global awareness reach at extremely low cost” said Bond. “It’s good fun, but it’s also good business”.

“With our platform approach we can typically launch in a new country in less than 10 days”, said Bond. “And the other countries in the region are also very strong gold buyers. We'll have more annoucements to follow soon."

Jodi Stanton

December 2, 2019

When I invest in companies, I always like to know the real team behind the CV. What is their collective life experience? What are their motivations? Will they have what it takes to survive the ups and downs of growing a business?

We've recently been asked by some of our new investors what makes us tick. Here is a snippet of the SendGold team, as of 8:00 am today, 2 December 2019.

Our CEO Jodi Stanton began her career on Wall St as an actuary and risk manager and since 1999 has been supporting the Australian start-up eco-system through funding and advising dozens of entrepreneurs, funds and family offices.  She is the 2019 Australian Femtech Leader of the year.

I am passionate about closing the wealth gap, the importance of owning an asset in a world of record debt levels, and gifts that do not end up in landfills.

Jodi has climbed several peaks including Denali, ridden her push bike over 40,000 km  circumnavigating the globe, and run her own whitewater rafting company.

Head of Business Development Mark Pey has spent his career at the juncture of financial services and technology, including a 10-year stint at Microsoft where he was Financial Services Industry Manager.

I’ve always believed that simple and fair access to financial benefit can extend to everyone given the right product and the right technology.

Mark made an early ascent of the world’s longest rock climb, sailed across the South Pacific, and once swam from Europe to Asia.

Executive Director Steve Bond is an experienced board member, start-up advisor, and software industry executive formerly with IBM in senior financial services roles across Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East/Africa and Central Europe.

I am passionate about SendGold’s capacity to drive growth and transform global markets with our people, innovation & technology based on gold - the world’s oldest sustained source of value.

Steve actively seeks new challenges and adventures, whether it's hiking the great walks of New Zealand with his family, travelling across the diverse countries of Asia or snowboarding on the big mountains of Canada.

Chief Technology Officer Alan Keenleside has over 15 years of experience delivering technology for the financial markets covering Clearing and Settlement, Custody Operations and International Trading.

I believe that instant peer-to-peer transfers are the future of FinTech. Basing those transactions on gold makes them real and globally recognised.  

Alan is a 2-time winner of the Simpson Desert Bike Challenge, a 4-time Ironman finisher, and in 2018 he cycled the Canning Stock Route, which at 1750kms is recognized as the longest offroad track on earth.

Chief Engineer John Townes brings over twenty-five years’ experience within the software development industry from application architecture and database development to systems architecture, working within financial services and a wide range of other industry sectors.

Building a technology that helps people and the planet is a natural goal for me.

Being something of a sailor, John thought moving the wind sport into the third dimension would be fun, so flying seemed a natural progression.

Chief Security Advisor Steve Wilson is a recognized global expert in cybersecurity in financial services, with senior roles and projects for Price Waterhouse Coopers, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Standards Australia Information Security Committee, and banks including Standard Chartered.

I'm slowly becoming a great believer in the Slow Movement. I cut my teeth in painstaking ultra high reliability software development, and I find that most security problems today still relate to haste.

Steve has been into cryptography and digital identity for 25 years, privacy and data protection for 15 years, vinyl records for 40 years and trekking for four years. He and his wife have recently rediscovered the great outdoors, trekking the Larapinta Trail in central Australia, Kopra Ridge off the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. 

And for anyone who needs our boring CVs:

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs. 

Nail gift-giving this Chinese New Year with SendGold - your partner in prosperity

This Chinese New Year, ensure that your loved ones revel in the traditions and joy of this auspicious occasion with the right gifts and by following all its revered traditions. 

Whether you’re gifting generously-stuffed hongbaos, a delectable array of fresh fruit or digital gold, give each gift with complete goodwill and generosity to experience the true joy of this occasion.

In a previous blog post we outlined some of the fundamental differences between owning physical gold and owning gold derivatives like ETFs:

https://www.sendgold.com/gold-etf-it-always-pays-to-read-the-fine-print/

In a research note to their clients last week major global bank ABN AMRO takes this distinction a step further. Rather than their being one gold price, they suggest that in practice there are actually two: physical gold and gold derivatives.

https://insights.abnamro.nl/en/2019/12/a-world-with-two-gold-prices/

“In times of financial crisis” the author writes, “the price representing physical gold will increase much faster than its non-physical counterpart”.  

And for a major bank dealing almost exclusively in paper-based accounts and investments their conclusion is also notable, and echoes what we at SendGold believe: “When there is zero trust in the financial system, the only safe option for investors is still physical gold”.

SendGold receives investment from Melbourne-based family offices led by leading wealth management firm EL&C Baillieu.

SendGold is pleased to announce that it has received an investment from several Melbourne-based family offices in a round led by EL&C Baillieu.  This investment is in addition to the current crowdsourced funding (CSF) round that is open on the Birchal funding platform until Thursday 19th December.

"In my opinion, fiat currencies are faith documents; crypto currencies are faith data signals”, stated Andrew Hellier, EL&C Baillieu. ”However with simple commodity exchange in the palm of your hand, based on 100% physical gold, SendGold may just be onto something.”

Funds raised will be used to drive transaction volume over the next 12 months. Just this week SendGold went live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

Jodi Stanton, SendGold CEO said, "More and more the penny is dropping for consumers as it has been for sophisticted investors. EC&L Baillieu has been through every market high and low from as far back as 1889. We are delighted to have such a pretigious wealth management firm in our corner." 

Hellier continued, "If the engine of fintech disruption is technology, the fuel of fintech disruption is the  growing customer awareness of unjustifiable intermediary costs. Good ideas always find an audience.”

Yesterday Goldman Sachs released a research report to their largest clients, saying the case for owning gold is now “as strong as ever”. 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/goldman-says-case-diversifying-gold-202759315.html

But towards the back of the Goldman report was an interesting chart.

We’re always on the lookout for new data points that help our customers understand what’s happening in the gold market.

Many analysts follow the inflows of physical gold into ETF products. They use this data to gauge institutional gold demand. ETF flows are shown as the black line on the following chart:

But what caught our eye, explained in the report, is the blue line on the chart.

Goldman analysts did the legwork of asking the major vaulting services (like Brink’s Global Services and G4S) and national customs regulators how much gold in total was actually flowing into their countries and vaults.

This is interesting because it captures gold demand by large investors that would otherwise not be reported elsewhere.

The conclusion is that large investors are adding significantly more to their gold holdings than has otherwise been reported.

With currency and trade wars around the globe and the shift in policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia to so-called “quantitative easing”, we agree with Goldman Sachs: the case for owning gold is getting stronger than ever.

SENDGOLD IS LIVE IN THE UAE!

SYDNEY - SendGold announced today that their digital gold money app is now live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

“We’re very excited to open SendGold to residents of the UAE as the first country in one of the world’s most important regions for consumer gold demand” said SendGold Executive Director Steve Bond.

“Dubai alone accounts for nearly 25% of world gold trade” Bond continued, “and the SendGold app makes it easier than ever to acquire gold at very competitive prices, use it for instant payments or gifts, or cash out to bank accounts in the local currency”.

The SendGold app is also targeted as a simple, fast, and cost-effective method for overseas workers and expats to send funds back home. The Dubai/India channel is a major remittances corridor and workers and investors in both countries prefer to hold gold over their local currencies, as these have had a track record of losing value over time.

In addition, the company can now finalise several commercial relationships with third party distrubiton partners in the region.

The price of gold has risen 17.9% in the last 12 months in the UAE, far outstripping the interest that could be earned in a typical bank account. In another key SendGold market, the gold price in Indian rupees is up 19.5% in the same period. SendGold payment transfers are instant, compared to bank transfers that can take 1-3 days.

One of the tools the company will use to promote SendGold in the UAE is their innovative augmented-reality game Gold Rush by SendGold, which gamifies customer awareness and acquisition in a way not previously seen in the gold industry.

Gold Rush enables the company to attract new users remotely, without the need for local bricks-and-mortar presence. “Gold Rush gives us global awareness reach at extremely low cost” said Bond. “It’s good fun, but it’s also good business”.

“With our platform approach we can typically launch in a new country in less than 10 days”, said Bond. “And the other countries in the region are also very strong gold buyers. We'll have more annoucements to follow soon."

Jodi Stanton

December 2, 2019

When I invest in companies, I always like to know the real team behind the CV. What is their collective life experience? What are their motivations? Will they have what it takes to survive the ups and downs of growing a business?

We've recently been asked by some of our new investors what makes us tick. Here is a snippet of the SendGold team, as of 8:00 am today, 2 December 2019.

Our CEO Jodi Stanton began her career on Wall St as an actuary and risk manager and since 1999 has been supporting the Australian start-up eco-system through funding and advising dozens of entrepreneurs, funds and family offices.  She is the 2019 Australian Femtech Leader of the year.

I am passionate about closing the wealth gap, the importance of owning an asset in a world of record debt levels, and gifts that do not end up in landfills.

Jodi has climbed several peaks including Denali, ridden her push bike over 40,000 km  circumnavigating the globe, and run her own whitewater rafting company.

Head of Business Development Mark Pey has spent his career at the juncture of financial services and technology, including a 10-year stint at Microsoft where he was Financial Services Industry Manager.

I’ve always believed that simple and fair access to financial benefit can extend to everyone given the right product and the right technology.

Mark made an early ascent of the world’s longest rock climb, sailed across the South Pacific, and once swam from Europe to Asia.

Executive Director Steve Bond is an experienced board member, start-up advisor, and software industry executive formerly with IBM in senior financial services roles across Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East/Africa and Central Europe.

I am passionate about SendGold’s capacity to drive growth and transform global markets with our people, innovation & technology based on gold - the world’s oldest sustained source of value.

Steve actively seeks new challenges and adventures, whether it's hiking the great walks of New Zealand with his family, travelling across the diverse countries of Asia or snowboarding on the big mountains of Canada.

Chief Technology Officer Alan Keenleside has over 15 years of experience delivering technology for the financial markets covering Clearing and Settlement, Custody Operations and International Trading.

I believe that instant peer-to-peer transfers are the future of FinTech. Basing those transactions on gold makes them real and globally recognised.  

Alan is a 2-time winner of the Simpson Desert Bike Challenge, a 4-time Ironman finisher, and in 2018 he cycled the Canning Stock Route, which at 1750kms is recognized as the longest offroad track on earth.

Chief Engineer John Townes brings over twenty-five years’ experience within the software development industry from application architecture and database development to systems architecture, working within financial services and a wide range of other industry sectors.

Building a technology that helps people and the planet is a natural goal for me.

Being something of a sailor, John thought moving the wind sport into the third dimension would be fun, so flying seemed a natural progression.

Chief Security Advisor Steve Wilson is a recognized global expert in cybersecurity in financial services, with senior roles and projects for Price Waterhouse Coopers, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Standards Australia Information Security Committee, and banks including Standard Chartered.

I'm slowly becoming a great believer in the Slow Movement. I cut my teeth in painstaking ultra high reliability software development, and I find that most security problems today still relate to haste.

Steve has been into cryptography and digital identity for 25 years, privacy and data protection for 15 years, vinyl records for 40 years and trekking for four years. He and his wife have recently rediscovered the great outdoors, trekking the Larapinta Trail in central Australia, Kopra Ridge off the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

I was asked to speak at Sydney's Gold and Alternative Investments Conference on the evolution of gold and digital assets and how they do and do not cross over. I was then interviewed by Port Phillip Publishing, Australia’s largest independent publisher of financial information and research, serving thousands of investors around the world.

Here is the 14 min casual unedited impromptu interview after a large glass of wine at the end of the day :)

January 23, 2020

With the Chinese New Year approaching rapidly, it’s no surprise that many of us have our heads filled with creamy-red hongbaos, steaming Chinese dumplings and sticky rice cakes. If you’re celebrating this holiday, however, your head is bound to be filled with another matter of equal importance - giving the perfect Chinese New Year gift.

If you’re stuck for ideas and don’t have the luxury of time, take a look at our gift-giving dos and don’ts for all you need to know before you pick the perfect gift. Good luck!

Do think about the colour of your gifts

Given the importance ascribed to colours in Chinese culture, especially to gold, red and yellow, giving gifts in these colours can make you an instant party favourite.

If you’re trying to be a little creative with your gift-giving this year and still want to give gifts considered to be lucky, gold is always a good way to go. The best part is that you no longer have to shell out a mini fortune to make a good impression - with SendGold, you can now transfer gold via our app to your loved ones this Chinese New Year, for just about any amount you can afford

Whatever you decide to get, check if they have variations of it in gold, red or yellow for a truly prosperous gift. 

Don’t forget to do some research on CNY gifts - some are considered inauspicious

As with every culture, certain gift items don’t ring a tiding of wealth and prosperity - quite the opposite, in fact. 

Among the list of tabooed gifts for the new year include shoes, pears, fans, umbrellas and clocks or watches. While the list doesn’t end there, these are a few items that can cause quite a stir if they’re unwrapped at a Chinese New Year party. 

Make sure you’re the talk of the party, but for all the right reasons!

Don’t give gifts in sets of four

Another major gift-giving faux pas is giving someone a gift that comes in a set of four. This is because the word ‘four’ sounds similar to the word ‘death’ when stated in Mandarin

If you’re eager to give someone special a gift set though, you can always give them something in pairs of two or eight, which are considered to be much luckier and prosperous. ‘Eight’, when pronounced in Mandarin sounds like the word that means ‘to prosper’.

Do use both hands when presenting your gift

In addition to giving your gift plenty of thought, you also need to make sure that you present it in the right way. 

When exchanging gifts this Chinese New Year, make sure you use both hands as a sign of respect to the other person. In the same way, if you receive any gift, use both hands as well. 

Following these simple but deeply-revered customs will help you engage more meaningful on this occasion.

Don’t open your gifts right away

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs.

In addition to giving your gift plenty of thought, you also need to make sure that you present it in the right way. 

When exchanging gifts this Chinese New Year, make sure you use both hands as a sign of respect to the other person. In the same way, if you receive any gift, use both hands as well. 

Following these simple but deeply-revered customs will help you engage more meaningful on this occasion.

Don’t open your gifts right away

Another thing you need to know is that it’s considered bad form if you tear into your gifts as soon as you receive them. Given that your reaction to someone’s gift can either lead to satisfaction or disappointment for the giver, you’re expected to open your gifts in private. 

This is also so that someone who has given you a more modest gift won’t feel bad when they see that you’ve received more lavish gifts than theirs. 

Nail gift-giving this Chinese New Year with SendGold - your partner in prosperity

This Chinese New Year, ensure that your loved ones revel in the traditions and joy of this auspicious occasion with the right gifts and by following all its revered traditions. 

Whether you’re gifting generously-stuffed hongbaos, a delectable array of fresh fruit or digital gold, give each gift with complete goodwill and generosity to experience the true joy of this occasion.

In a previous blog post we outlined some of the fundamental differences between owning physical gold and owning gold derivatives like ETFs:

https://www.sendgold.com/gold-etf-it-always-pays-to-read-the-fine-print/

In a research note to their clients last week major global bank ABN AMRO takes this distinction a step further. Rather than their being one gold price, they suggest that in practice there are actually two: physical gold and gold derivatives.

https://insights.abnamro.nl/en/2019/12/a-world-with-two-gold-prices/

“In times of financial crisis” the author writes, “the price representing physical gold will increase much faster than its non-physical counterpart”.  

And for a major bank dealing almost exclusively in paper-based accounts and investments their conclusion is also notable, and echoes what we at SendGold believe: “When there is zero trust in the financial system, the only safe option for investors is still physical gold”.

SendGold receives investment from Melbourne-based family offices led by leading wealth management firm EL&C Baillieu.

SendGold is pleased to announce that it has received an investment from several Melbourne-based family offices in a round led by EL&C Baillieu.  This investment is in addition to the current crowdsourced funding (CSF) round that is open on the Birchal funding platform until Thursday 19th December.

"In my opinion, fiat currencies are faith documents; crypto currencies are faith data signals”, stated Andrew Hellier, EL&C Baillieu. ”However with simple commodity exchange in the palm of your hand, based on 100% physical gold, SendGold may just be onto something.”

Funds raised will be used to drive transaction volume over the next 12 months. Just this week SendGold went live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

Jodi Stanton, SendGold CEO said, "More and more the penny is dropping for consumers as it has been for sophisticted investors. EC&L Baillieu has been through every market high and low from as far back as 1889. We are delighted to have such a pretigious wealth management firm in our corner." 

Hellier continued, "If the engine of fintech disruption is technology, the fuel of fintech disruption is the  growing customer awareness of unjustifiable intermediary costs. Good ideas always find an audience.”

Yesterday Goldman Sachs released a research report to their largest clients, saying the case for owning gold is now “as strong as ever”. 

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/goldman-says-case-diversifying-gold-202759315.html

But towards the back of the Goldman report was an interesting chart.

We’re always on the lookout for new data points that help our customers understand what’s happening in the gold market.

Many analysts follow the inflows of physical gold into ETF products. They use this data to gauge institutional gold demand. ETF flows are shown as the black line on the following chart:

But what caught our eye, explained in the report, is the blue line on the chart.

Goldman analysts did the legwork of asking the major vaulting services (like Brink’s Global Services and G4S) and national customs regulators how much gold in total was actually flowing into their countries and vaults.

This is interesting because it captures gold demand by large investors that would otherwise not be reported elsewhere.

The conclusion is that large investors are adding significantly more to their gold holdings than has otherwise been reported.

With currency and trade wars around the globe and the shift in policy by the Reserve Bank of Australia to so-called “quantitative easing”, we agree with Goldman Sachs: the case for owning gold is getting stronger than ever.

SENDGOLD IS LIVE IN THE UAE!

SYDNEY - SendGold announced today that their digital gold money app is now live in the United Arab Emirates, the centre of gold trading throughout the Middle East region.

“We’re very excited to open SendGold to residents of the UAE as the first country in one of the world’s most important regions for consumer gold demand” said SendGold Executive Director Steve Bond.

“Dubai alone accounts for nearly 25% of world gold trade” Bond continued, “and the SendGold app makes it easier than ever to acquire gold at very competitive prices, use it for instant payments or gifts, or cash out to bank accounts in the local currency”.

The SendGold app is also targeted as a simple, fast, and cost-effective method for overseas workers and expats to send funds back home. The Dubai/India channel is a major remittances corridor and workers and investors in both countries prefer to hold gold over their local currencies, as these have had a track record of losing value over time.

In addition, the company can now finalise several commercial relationships with third party distrubiton partners in the region.

The price of gold has risen 17.9% in the last 12 months in the UAE, far outstripping the interest that could be earned in a typical bank account. In another key SendGold market, the gold price in Indian rupees is up 19.5% in the same period. SendGold payment transfers are instant, compared to bank transfers that can take 1-3 days.

One of the tools the company will use to promote SendGold in the UAE is their innovative augmented-reality game Gold Rush by SendGold, which gamifies customer awareness and acquisition in a way not previously seen in the gold industry.

Gold Rush enables the company to attract new users remotely, without the need for local bricks-and-mortar presence. “Gold Rush gives us global awareness reach at extremely low cost” said Bond. “It’s good fun, but it’s also good business”.

“With our platform approach we can typically launch in a new country in less than 10 days”, said Bond. “And the other countries in the region are also very strong gold buyers. We'll have more annoucements to follow soon."

Jodi Stanton

December 2, 2019

When I invest in companies, I always like to know the real team behind the CV. What is their collective life experience? What are their motivations? Will they have what it takes to survive the ups and downs of growing a business?

We've recently been asked by some of our new investors what makes us tick. Here is a snippet of the SendGold team, as of 8:00 am today, 2 December 2019.

Our CEO Jodi Stanton began her career on Wall St as an actuary and risk manager and since 1999 has been supporting the Australian start-up eco-system through funding and advising dozens of entrepreneurs, funds and family offices.  She is the 2019 Australian Femtech Leader of the year.

I am passionate about closing the wealth gap, the importance of owning an asset in a world of record debt levels, and gifts that do not end up in landfills.

Jodi has climbed several peaks including Denali, ridden her push bike over 40,000 km  circumnavigating the globe, and run her own whitewater rafting company.

Head of Business Development Mark Pey has spent his career at the juncture of financial services and technology, including a 10-year stint at Microsoft where he was Financial Services Industry Manager.

I’ve always believed that simple and fair access to financial benefit can extend to everyone given the right product and the right technology.

Mark made an early ascent of the world’s longest rock climb, sailed across the South Pacific, and once swam from Europe to Asia.

Executive Director Steve Bond is an experienced board member, start-up advisor, and software industry executive formerly with IBM in senior financial services roles across Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East/Africa and Central Europe.

I am passionate about SendGold’s capacity to drive growth and transform global markets with our people, innovation & technology based on gold - the world’s oldest sustained source of value.

Steve actively seeks new challenges and adventures, whether it's hiking the great walks of New Zealand with his family, travelling across the diverse countries of Asia or snowboarding on the big mountains of Canada.

Chief Technology Officer Alan Keenleside has over 15 years of experience delivering technology for the financial markets covering Clearing and Settlement, Custody Operations and International Trading.

I believe that instant peer-to-peer transfers are the future of FinTech. Basing those transactions on gold makes them real and globally recognised.  

Alan is a 2-time winner of the Simpson Desert Bike Challenge, a 4-time Ironman finisher, and in 2018 he cycled the Canning Stock Route, which at 1750kms is recognized as the longest offroad track on earth.

Chief Engineer John Townes brings over twenty-five years’ experience within the software development industry from application architecture and database development to systems architecture, working within financial services and a wide range of other industry sectors.

Building a technology that helps people and the planet is a natural goal for me.

Being something of a sailor, John thought moving the wind sport into the third dimension would be fun, so flying seemed a natural progression.

Chief Security Advisor Steve Wilson is a recognized global expert in cybersecurity in financial services, with senior roles and projects for Price Waterhouse Coopers, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Standards Australia Information Security Committee, and banks including Standard Chartered.

I'm slowly becoming a great believer in the Slow Movement. I cut my teeth in painstaking ultra high reliability software development, and I find that most security problems today still relate to haste.

Steve has been into cryptography and digital identity for 25 years, privacy and data protection for 15 years, vinyl records for 40 years and trekking for four years. He and his wife have recently rediscovered the great outdoors, trekking the Larapinta Trail in central Australia, Kopra Ridge off the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal, and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. 

And for anyone who needs our boring CVs:

SendGold has been named as a finalist in the My Business Awards for Fintech Business Of The Year. The My Business Awards is the premier independent awards program celebrating SME business owners and their teams, providing unique opportunities for the winners to showcase their talent and excellence across industries including finance, hospitality, travel and tourism, business leadership, trades, retail and many more.

The finalist list, which was announced on 30th September, features over 227 high-achieving SME owners and professionals across 32 categories.

“Small and medium business owners work exceptionally hard, and do so amid a complex regulatory framework, an uncertain economic outlook and a rapidly changing marketplace, thanks to the pace of technological change,” said My Business editor, Adam Zuchetti.

“This year’s My Business Awards finalists are shining examples of how these challenges are being faced head-on by Aussie businesses to deliver outstanding service to their customers, become attractive places to work and be a force for good within their local communities."

“On behalf of the My Business team, I warmly congratulate all of our finalists for 2019 and wish them the best of luck on the night."

Jodi Stanton, the CEO at SendGold, said that she was humbled to be recognised and proud to be a part of such an exclusive network.

SendGold’s recognition for its excellent contribution to the financial technology industry reinforces the strength of the brand in connecting with the community and engaging with its customers,” she added.
