This educative session ‘Gold metal loans from banks and how to hedge at MCX’, is moderated by Sanjeev Agarwal, Chairman FICCI Gems & Jeweller & Lifestyle Committee. The members of the esteemed panel are- Shivanshu Mehta, MCX and Ashish Pethe from Waman Hari Pethe.
Speaking about the topic and its relevance today, Sanjeev Agarwal, Chairman FICCI Gems & Jeweller & Lifestyle Committee said, “Unlike many other retail sectors, Jeweller Retailers operate on very slim margins because over 79-80 percent of the retail price is accounted for by the raw material (gold) cost itself. Hence any savings in raw material (gold) costs through gold metal loan and gold price hedging, can make a signing difference to the bottom line.”
He further added, “Gold metal loan concept is unique to the jeweller sector only and not available to any other retail product category and hence the trade should take full advantage of it and cut their inventory carrying costs by 1/4th, which will help them increase their retail presence with limited investments.”
Ashish Pethe, Partner, Waman Hari Pethe shared, “With the fluctuations in gold price being the norm. It has become imperative for the full value chain in the gold jewellery industry to be aware and use the hedging mechanisms. The pressure on the working capital requirements can be eased through gold metal loans.”

He will also speak about how jewellers are exposed to price volatility due to several reasons, and how MCX Bullion contracts capture all these factors in gold and silver prices thereby, enabling a complete hedge.
