Synopsis

As previously mentioned, physical gold is something you actually own. You can see it, you can touch it and you can do what you want with it. It is not behind some bureaucratic wall or locked up in the traditional stocks and financial systems. 

The Risk is Yours Alone

There are no third parties involved, no hedge fund manager to advise you or financial advisers. This means that the money made and money lost is down to you alone. We would argue that, armed with a suitable amount of intelligence and an Internet connection, it is easy to self-manage your investment portfolio these days. 

We would also argue that owning physical gold is preferential to owning electronic gold in the form of ETFs. Often, you cannot withdraw your gold from these accounts without incurring significant fees and delivery charges and you are still at risk of a third party, relying on their business being a success. 

We have written a full blog on why physical gold ownership is our preferred investment choice and hope you find it useful. Read more by clicking here
