Remain in Control of Your Gold Investment
As previously mentioned, physical gold is something you 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. There are no third parties involved, no hedge fund manager to advise you or financial advisers. This does, however, mean your investment is your own responsibility but we would argue armed with the right information and with some wits about you it is a very preferential place to be.
We would also argue that owning physical gold is preferential to owning electronic gold in the form of ETF's. 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.
