Beaufort Society chairman Graham Rowan refers to the 2020s as The Age of Uncertainty, so one of the drivers for us in building the portfolio is to look for things that offer some degree of certainty.
Nothing fits that bill better than the oldest form of money itself, gold bullion. Normally you have no choice but to pay the prevailing ‘spot’ price at the moment you buy, but we have discovered a way to buy direct from the miner, have your gold delivered to the Zurich vaults of a major security company over a 2 year period and receive an ounce of free gold each month for every $100,000 you invest.
The effective discount you receive will clearly depend on where the gold price goes over the next two years, but when even the likes of Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan are telling their clients to put 5-10% of their wealth into gold, while the Sage of Omaha Warren Buffet has just invested $545 million in the world’s largest gold miner, you’d have to conclude that the smart money believes the upward trajectory is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
Minimum investment is £25,000. If you are looking for a way of converting a portion of your portfolio into gold bullion while building in some protection against price volatility this opportunity could be of interest to you.
