The journey to personalised success.

Finding a trusted source in the gold industry can be a perilous task, and many fail before they succeed. Identifying risk versus reward can be equally problematic. We ourselves have trodden this path on more than one occasion and it has taken almost 3 years to find a trusted partner who can deliver on their word. Our partners have closely studied the inefficiencies in the gold industry and successfully enhanced each step of the supply chain by becoming the supply chain. Additionally, our partners strongly subscribe to responsible sourcing and fair trade policies.

It is precisely these actions that make the key difference in being able to truly deliver an unrivalled service to our clients. Securing this partnership has led to the birth of AvantGold Ltd and where we can now share the benefits of the innovation that sits within the APDG buying experience, and many of our clients are already reaping the rewards.
