Why Invest in Gold, Silver and other Precious Metals Now?
Investment experts have long recommended that any diversified portfolio have some allocation to physical precious metals such as gold and silver in bar or coin form (metrowestpreciousmetals.com/products) for the following reasons:
- They have been a store of wealth for over 5000 years
- They help you maintain purchasing power
- They are extremely private
- They are physical assets that you can hold in your hand in an increasingly digital world
- They help protect against currency debasement from central banks and over-indebted governments
- They serve as a hedge against traditional paper assets
- They possess no counterparty risk, which is becoming increasingly important as many financial institutions continue to take on undue risk and leverage.
