In addition to investment gold and silver and the purchase of gold, the main activities are the currency exchange business and ATM management.
More than 100 years of tradition
The beginning related to the purchase of gold
The international success of the Auro Domus Group is based on more than 100 years of family tradition in the precious metal trade. Back in 1916, Renato Dessardo began his training as a master jeweler with Rudolf Giraldi, the most respected jeweler of the time. After obtaining approval to work as an independent jeweler in 1929, he opened his first jewelry store. For his place of work, he chose Opatija, one of the most important European tourist destinations at the beginning of the century, a place of luxury, glamour and refined taste. The head office of the company Auro Domus is located in Opatija to date.
Knowledge and skills were passed down from generation to generation. After Renato, his son Ivo and grandson Armin took over the business, and expanded it to other cities. On this tradition, Loris Dessardo, the fourth generation of the family in the gold business, founded the company Auro Domus in 2010. He combined many years of experience with market needs and created one of the fastest growing companies in the country.
The company Auro Domus began its business with the purchase of gold. It was the first to organize a professional purchase of gold as an independent activity. In just two years, the company has become a Croatian leader in precious metals. Quality business policy and professional approach to clients have been recognized and rewarded by the market. Thanks to this, in 2014 the company achieved the highest growth among the 100 largest companies in Croatia.
A year earlier, the Group was expanded with the company Auro Domus Bullion Market. The company specializes in the production and sale of items made of investment gold and silver. With this, the Auro Domus Group has rounded up its activity in the precious metals market.

Stepping into new activities
International business expansion
Today, Auro Domus has a wide retail network throughout Croatia. Under the distinctive yellow and black sign, clients will find kind and educated employees specialized in providing services of valuation and purchase of gold and silver, sale of investment gold and gold jewelry and currency exchange.
The company bases its further growth on recognizing market needs and further expanding its business and bringing money services closer to a wide range of clients. On these grounds, Auro Domus built one of the largest ATM networks in Croatia. In its network, it enables quick cash withdrawals in more than 500 locations across the country.
Auro Domus has expanded its business activities to other European Union countries in recent years. The service of buying and selling investment gold is internationally available. At the same time, the network of ATMs outside Croatian borders has been expanded.
Auro Domus bases its further growth and success on the same postulates on which the reputation of the Dessardo jewelry store was built. The postulates include continuous monitoring of market trends, investment in employee education and insistence, not only on fulfillment, but also on surpassing all wishes of clients.
