Where is your gold and what about Security?
November 22, 2017
Let’s talk Ownership & Security.
With many investments, intermediaries exist between you and actual ownership of the underlying asset.
In almost every instance when you buy shares, bonds, or funds from a broker, for example, your name is not actually on the share or bond certificate. As FINRA says on their website, “When an investor opens an investment account, the stocks and bonds he or she buys are registered in the issuer’s books as belonging to the brokerage firm”.
With SendGold by contrast you obtain outright individual legal title to your investment asset. In other words, there’s no confusion or ambiguity.
All SendGold gold is at least 99.95% pure, is audited by Bureau Veritas, held in Australian vaults operated by Brink’s Global Services, and insured by Lloyd’s of London. Bureau Veritas has been in the business of protecting investor assets since 1828. Brink’s has been in the custody business since 1859. Lloyd’s of London has been in the insurance business since 1686.
During the GFC many investment promises turned out not to be worth the paper they were written on.
With SendGold you get physical gold that you own, safeguarded by some of the oldest companies in the business, not just paper promises for assets that are owned by somebody else.
