GoldSafe rationale is you own physical gold. This methodology underpins the investment model and is key to the long term financial security of the GoldSafe client. There is no involvement with ETF’s, futures, derivatives contracts or paper gold of any kind. The owners of gold at GoldSafe own the physical metal in its entirety, un-leveraged, and ounce for ounce, and by ounce, or whatever mass denomination you choose, gram, kilo or tola.
Cost of storage and insurance are important to consider, these are the responsibility of the owner of the bullion. Fortunately the ratio of size to value is extremely good with gold, this makes the cost of storage in relation to value of asset extremely low. Unlike many other valuable properties, gold is extremely stable and inert. It does not tarnish or degrade over time and is very easy to store. Gold happily just sits quietly on the shelf accumulating in value over time.
The GoldSafe model is not limited any specific region and there are reciprocal relationships in place with most of the world’s established bullion depositories. And you can structure the Goldsafe model in the most geopolitical advantageous way for you the investor, to generate the optimum outcome.
