Expressing enthusiasm about the partnership, Avnish Anand, Chief Executive Officer at CaratLane, said, “The whole point of building the Digital gold business is to provide a simpler cost effective solution to consumers who buy and gift gold for future jewellery purchases. Today most such customers buy gold coins. This strategic partnership with PhonePe is a crucial step in making that happen. PhonePe already has a huge base of customers who are buying digital gold. This partnership can give those Digital gold buyers an option to redeem that gold for beautiful jewellery. PhonePe is another customer centric brand which is focused on solving such problems at scale. We feel that we can combine our capabilities and provide a wonderful experience and great value to such consumers. We are very excited about this. This is very similar to digitisation of payments. We have seen how that has transformed consumer behaviour in this country. We are aiming to do something similar in the jewellery space.”

Gold Savings is one of the key investment options for customers in India, and we have seen a strong inclination towards digital gold investment on our platform in the last few years. We are confident that this partnership will transform the way people invest in Gold.”
