Should I buy gold

We live in a time of heightened geopolitical risk, record global debt and negative real rates. In periods of economic and political turmoil, investors have been rewarded with a flight to safety to physical gold. Investment grade gold bars are the most secure method of gold investment with no counterparty risk. Historically physical gold has served as a repository of wealth maintaining its value in terms of real purchasing power. Gold serves as a portfolio diversifier because it tends to have low correlations to most other asset classes. It preserves wealth; Gold is typically considered a hedge against inflation, but it also acts as a currency hedge, in particular against the dollar with which gold correlates negatively. Gold is also highly liquid, sale proceeds will be returned the same day. Buying physical gold is the ultimate insurance against economic uncertainty and instability.

Best way to buy gold

Physical gold is the most secure form of gold investment with no counterparty risk. A safe haven asset is only as safe as where you keep it, so we would advise clients to store their precious metals securely. We never advise clients to allocate their entire portfolio to physical gold, but a 5 to 10% allocation to the physical asset balances your portfolio and hedges your other investments. You can buy physical Gold Bars and physical Gold Coins and here at Sharps Pixley, we offer the most competitive prices to buy gold in the UK. When it comes to selling your gold, here at Sharps Pixley we will pay you 98% to 99% of the spot price even if you brought your gold from another broker (subject to testing and quality).
