Wealth protection and long term financial planning historically has considered property, bricks and mortar, or more recently concrete and steel as a safe haven for capital asset protection and growth. Owning something real, which can be rented to another for a healthy annual return, has been the staple diet for investors who shy from the world’s complex financial products and equities. Neither property, complex financial products nor equities have escaped the difficulties in recent years. In fact the over reliance on these products has in part been responsible for some of the boom bust cycles in modern times.
Gold is not a financial product, it never has been, it is the underlying physical commodity upon which money itself was modelled. The indomitable element maintains its existence remorselessly as a property that we all covet. The nature and durability of the metal have made it the bench mark commodity for the world as we know it. It is value in the truest sense of the word, and the most liquid and portable asset on earth. And yet it is property which exists, is accountable and convertible all in the same.
Gold has always surpassed the key underlying growth of property as a capital asset, what it has failed to do historically is generate revenue if you do nothing with it. It can often be excused this shortfall, as its capital growth often beats combined property yield plus capital growth, and there are no dilapidations to absorb. Ownership of the physical gold by the investor directly is key to the GoldSafe strategy.The GoldSafe unique approach to the storing of the gold in Dubai, or other suitable advantageous and secure vaults around the globe, enables the investor to receive annual income from ownership of the metal. Central Banks have long supported their capital issuance with gold reserves locked away deep in their vaults, and in the current economic climate a prudent investor in the GoldSafe model can enjoy the benefits once the exclusive premise of the Central Banks.
