Investment companies

Before choosing a gold investment company, we have a number of useful pages on the general subject of gold investment:

After considering all the pro and cons, if you conclude it is right for you, the next step will be to find the best company to use for your investments. Naturally, we recommend buying physical metal from ourselves, but before choosing to buy from us we hope you will look at all the facts and make a decision you feel comfortable with, based on the best information.


Investment opportunities

Besides buying physical gold, investors have a number other options.

First amongst these are Exchange Traded Funds or ETFs. In simple terms ETFs investors hold a guaranteed share in the precious metal held by the fund. The price of ETF shares broadly follow the metal’s trading price but, because the shares are traded in their own right, they are also influence by their own supply and demand. ETF investors save on storage costs and insurance but never actually own their precious metal and must put their trust in the funds management.

Investor may also consider precious metal mining shares. These closely follow the actual metal’s trading price but are also influenced by many other factors; the company's management, trading, politics and natural resources in the location.

Most risk comes investing in Gold Futures. As with ETFs, investors never own the gold but purchase options to buy at a future date: essentially betting on a rise or fall in the gold price. Bluntly, Gold Futures are only for the most experienced of investors.
