Owning Physical Bullion
Owning physical gold & silver bullion is the ultimate way to balance a client portfolio effectively, simultaneously preserving value while hedging against potential risk. Physical bullion is the one truly defensive asset – uncorrelated with all other assets – that legitimately rounds out a client portfolio while fulfilling an investment advisor’s fiduciary obligation. Physical precious metals ownership is an excellent hedge against currency fluctuations; specifically, it is an effective tool in protecting a portfolio against dollar weakness.
