Rules affecting the gold industry come from a variety of federal and state laws, regulations and guidance.
To address compliance, Augusta has a robust compliance department with a neutral third-party administrator who was instrumental in designing our systems and who oversees our activities to ensure compliance with these systems.
We know it’s important for you to work with a gold company that demonstrates integrity, honesty and transparency.
Federal and state laws and regulations exist to protect consumers when making large purchases such as the physical gold and silver portfolios Augusta provides to our customers. Compliance with these laws is one of the consistent tenets of Augusta Precious Metals’ operation.
In fact, when we can, we go further than the law to fulfill its spirit of protection. You will find evidence of this throughout our website, marketing materials and official documents, as well as in agent-led phone calls and web conferences.
Augusta Precious Metals’ compliance team is led by an independent compliance administrator, Mary Obidinski. She works as an outside consultant to help us stay compliant. Because she is not part of Augusta, there is no conflict of interest. For more than a decade, Ms. Obidinski has advised clients across a variety of industries on marketing and other regulatory compliance matters.
