About Us

At HelloGold, we believe that gold protects your savings, so we’ve made it our mission for everyone to have access to it in an affordable and secure way. Founded in 2015 by Malaysian co-founders Robin Lee and Ridwan Abdullah, we built the world’s first Shariah compliant gold mobile application that changes the way you buy, sell, send and redeem physical gold. Our dedicated team of experienced professionals have come together from the gold industry, financial services, technology, and digital user experience, with the aim of making gold available to all.
