Gold is a simple, honest investment. We have identified eight key issues that are important in the process of investing in gold. Our business model is designed around this reliable process with the objective of ensuring the safety of your investments.
The key areas of focus are:
We require minimal personal information from our clients and absolutely protect their data. We will not transfer, disclose, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to any third party. Registration is fast and easy. The product range has been carefully researched and buying is simple and safe.
Although we are largely an online business, we are available to talk to you. Sharing information with you and building relationships are important to us and form a cornerstone of our business model.
We have selected only the best blue-chip gold products available. All of these are LBMA certified or COMEX deliverable and are guaranteed for purity and fineness. All the bars and coins we recommend are produced by the world’s best refineries and are known and accepted throughout the world. We only deal in the actual physical metal and not “paper gold”.
The product range covers a wide spectrum of gold bars and coins, mostly with different weights. If you are buying only a few ounces then selection is simple. If you are making a larger investment then the portfolio structure is important. Liquidity is important. In the future you may wish to sell only part of your holding and to allow for this flexibility you need to select some smaller denomination bars. Contact us - we are happy to discuss your portfolio structure with you. Feel free to contact us with your thoughts on the matter.
We offer high security storage with Brinks in Zurich, Switzerland. Brinks are one of the world’s top three armoured security companies with a state-of-the art security facility underground at Zurich International Airport. Our storage rates are extremely low and the first year's storage is FREE. All bullion in storage is physically allocated to each client and stored under your own name with a unique account number. All goods are fully insured through Lloyds of London.
We ship to most destinations internationally. The goods in transit are fully insured. For orders over $10 000 fully insured shipping is free of charge.
This is perhaps the most important consideration when storing physical gold. Governments have a history of confiscating citizen's gold. The global banking system is considered to be unstable and not trustworthy. It is therefore important to select a historically secure storage jurisdiction that is also separated from all banking influence. The facility we use in Zurich satisfies all these requirements.
Easy to Sell
The true value of gold bullion lies in its liquidity. All or part of your gold held in storage may be sold at any point in time. For gold stored by My Gold Platform on behalf of clients, we offer a minimum of 96% of the current spot price. Payment is made to you via bank transfer within 4 days.
