founder of Matterhorn, says:

Physical Gold is nature's currency and timeless insurance

Physical gold - a critical store of value in every portfolio

Gold has been money for more than 5,000 years. No paper currency has survived throughout history. Gold has always maintained its purchasing power whilst government deficits and money printing has consistently destroyed the value of paper money.

With most sovereign states as well as the entire global banking system under severe financial stress, wealth preservation today is absolutely crucial. This is why physical gold should be an important store of value in any portfolio.

For institutional investors this could realistically involve allocating 2-10% of assets into physical gold and for private investors 10-20% or even higher in some cases, depending on reporting currency and the volatility risk of traditional asset classes at any one time. Matterhorn's physical Gold & Silver Purchase/Sale and Storage programme is open to: Institutional Investors, Private Individuals, Hedge Funds, Family Offices, Companies, Trusts and Pension Funds

"Our global client base strategically store an important part of their wealth in Switzerland in physical gold and silver outside the banking system. We are pleased to deliver a unique and exceptional service to our highly esteemed wealth preservation clientele in over 50 countries"
