Gold is the ultimate form of wealth preservation. Throughout history gold is the only currency that has survived in its original form. All paper money systems in history have been printed away until the money becomes worthless.
True Wealth Preservation Principles for owning gold
Virtually Risk Free – (Why GoldSwitzerland?)
Although there is clearly no absolutely risk free method for buying and storing gold, GoldSwitzerland has created a system which surpasses virtually any other method and offers wealth preservation at the highest level.
- When you buy gold from GoldSwitzerland you receive the highest quality of gold (999.9 or 99.99% purity for 1 kilo and 100gr bars). 400oz bars are London Good Delivery.
- Your gold is stored outside the banking system, outside of the Eurozone or a USDollar zone, allocated and segregated in your name.
- One of the locations is within the compound of and underneath Zurich Airport.
- The other specialized vault location is for UHNW individuals and sovereign wealth funds. This location is entirely self supporting for electricity, oxygen and water supply.
- You own actual physical gold bars which are registered in your name, not an allocated fraction of a gold bar as with with other companies.
- The gold is insured by a major international insurance company.
- You are issued a signed Certificate of Ownership / Warehouse Receipt with the specific weights and serial numbers of your gold bars.
- You (or a representative authorised by you) can inspect your gold, normally during office hours, by appointment. As this requires assistance from security staff a small fee will be charged by the vault for this service.
- You can collect your gold from the vaults if you so wish.
- In case of a disruption in the financial system, you have gold which is safely stored and which you can readily access yourself.
