The set up of GoldBroker.com is a result of our own experience, seeing the problems faced by those who understand why it’s important to invest in physical gold and silver nowadays, but who don’t have the technical skills required to know exactly the best solution to own or invest in gold and silver.
Here are the different steps from our own experiences that made us create GoldBroker.com :
I decided to invest in Gold and Silver in order to protect my assets:
I believe that inflation is destroying the purchasing power of my wealth, I fear that my bank could go bankrupt, investing in stocks is too dangerous (crash of 2008), and I’m not willing to invest in real estate in view of the current prices.
I called my banker for advice and he told me to buy gold and silver ETFs:
First problem: By investing in an ETF, tracker or certificate, you have no guarantee whatsoever that you own PHYSICAL gold and silver. If you closely read the contract, you will find that the issuer of the certificate or ETF can default and pay you in cash if they are not able to provide you with physical gold…besides, there is a minimum amount you need to reach (12,5kg most of the time) to be able to call for delivery. And you can even end up paying the penalty in order to convert your ETF shares into physical gold. When you invest in ETF/tracker or certificate, you don’t really own physical gold, you own « paper » gold.
It is almost impossible to convert your ETF shares in physical gold or silver... just try if you’re not convinced. In the current economic situation, owning ETFs is not what you need in order to get maximum protection. If you want to trade gold and silver on a short term basis, go ahead, but that’s not what you’re looking for if you want to protect your wealth.
Some even say that ETF issuers don’t have enough physical gold and silver to convert all the shares owned by their clients into physical gold and silver if all of them call for delivery.
Avoid this kind of « paper » investment, own physical gold and silver in your own name, not through third parties.
So then, I decided to buy gold and silver bar or coins and store them in my house or in a vault at my bank.
Second problem: Home storage can be quite risky. In case of a robbery, you lose everything, and most of the time you’re not insured. Secure storage is a job for professional companies with experience and the tools to manage it.
Besides, if you decide to store you gold at your bank you won’t be able to access it if the bank is temporarily closed or during a bank run. You won’t be able to access your gold when you need it the most.
If you store your gold and silver holdings in the country where you live, you are not protected in case your government outlaws the ownership of gold. It happened in the past when President Roosevelt was in power in the USA, it can happen again. It never happened in Switzerland where the secure vault is located.
Concerning storage of physical silver: Silver is 40 times bulkier than gold, so it’s impossible to store large amounts of silver at home or at your bank.
Eventually, to avoid all these problems, there is only one 100% secure solution to owning gold and silver, and it’s the solution we've developped here at GoldBroker.com
1/ Invest in PHYSICAL gold and silver only : you will avoid bankruptcy risks or failure to have your physical gold/silver delivered by an ETF issuer.
2/ Own PHYSICAL gold and silver in YOUR OWN NAME : not trough third parties. Remember, if you can’t touch it you don’t own it. Example : if you own a share of a physical gold bar, you won’t be able to call for delivery. Instead, avoid mutualized ownership, own quantities that can be delivered to you or that you own 100%.
3/ Store your gold and silver outside the banking system, so that you will not be exposed to bank closure/ bank holidays. GoldBroker is the investment solution we created to answer these problems. With us, you can own PHYSICAL gold and silver outside the banking system, in YOUR OWN NAME, and you can ask for a delivery whenever you want. You can also come to the secure vault in New York, Toronto, Zurich and Singapore to check your holdings. You own the gold and silver, we do not : we are just assisting you by managing the process to enable you to invest in physical gold and silver.
