Benefits of bullion
Distinct from other financial assets
As tangible assets, gold and silver bullion are different to other financial assets investors hold in their portfolios. Physical bullion does not depend on the performance of banks or financial counterparties to maintain its value. This makes gold and silver very different to stocks, bonds and other financial products, whose value it totally dependent on the banking system.
Know this, prudent investors turn to physical gold and silver as an effective way of keeping some of their wealth outside of the financial system, its risk and leverage. What percentage to invest in tangible assets away from the banks is a personal consideration, but for hundreds of years Swiss bankers have advised their wealthy clients to hold 10% of their wealth in bullion. This Swiss way of thinking about investing, tended to focus mostly on gold, but precious metals generally are unique in helping investors avoid counterpart risk.
