The ABC of Bullion

Assess – learn all about it and why it is considered by many to be an essential part of any balanced portfolio.  This may not be your financial advisor as they are not traditionally great referrers to bullion – there’s no commission and it sometimes contradicts their equities centric philosophy.  There are plenty of main stream experts who espouse a part of your portfolio like Ray Dalio – head of the world’s biggest and $150b hedge fund who said in May of 2015 “if you don’t own gold there is no  sensible reason other than you don’t know history or you don’t know the economics of it”.  Click on the links above to start your own assessment…

Buy – This is the easy (and fun!) part.  First and foremost you want to buy off a registered bullion dealer with a long track record.  You will pay in full for your bullion before you take delivery so you want someone who you can trust will deliver.  Ainslie Bullion has been around for over 40 years and earned an unparalleled reputation for delivery and putting its customer’s first.  We are also one of the biggest in Australia and that means we generally carry enough stock to give you immediate delivery.  When we can’t we tell you up front.  Our size also means we can provide immediate buy back when it’s time to sell.  We also make it incredibly easy – no account set up and the options of webshop, phone order or Queensland’s biggest display room and physical store centrally in the CBD with $10 parking.  Click on How to Buy above to learn more…

Control – So you’ve just purchased a hard asset with no counterparty risks – YOU have total control so let’s keep it that way.  The next question is storage – and again you have plenty of options.  We suggest clients store at Reserve Vault in Brisbane (we’ll even deliver it there for you for free).  The key reasons are its independent (not a bank that can have a ‘bank holiday’ ala Cyprus), it’s incredibly secure and doesn’t expose you or your family to personal risk like a home safe does, and finally it offers amazingly cheap (but fully underwritten by Lloyds of London) insurance for extra peace of mind.  Click on the Storage tab above to learn more… The other Control piece to the puzzle is to keep reassessing your wealth allocation.  You may decide you want, say, 25% of your total wealth in bullion – set yourself a 6 monthly reminder to reassess where you are with that.  This also helps you dollar cost average your purchases over time.  Finally take Control of your retirement phase and look at establishing your own Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) with an allocation of gold and silver bullion.  Don’t be like the heartbreaking images of retirees we saw after the GFC who had lost everything.  Click on SMSF above for more…     

Finally remember the last ABC…. Always consider Ainslie Bullion Company for your business.
