To date, the portfolio of gold bars left in storage at VTB has exceeded 66 billion rubles, having increased by 40% since the beginning of the year. According to VTB estimates, a moderate increase in demand for precious metals is expected by the end of the year.

To fix the yield on gold bars, VTB launched a service for their repurchase. Investors will be able to sell physical bars if they purchased them and left them in storage at VTB. The value of gold is calculated according to the bank's quotes at the time of the transaction in rubles.
