What others say...

The great merit of gold is precisely that it is scarce; that its quantity is limited by nature; that it is costly to discover, to mine, and to process; and that it cannot be created by political fiat or caprice.
Henry Hazlitt, libertarian philosopher & economist of Austrian school (1894- 1993)

If you don't trust gold, do you trust the logic of taking a beautiful pine tree, worth about $4,000 - $5,000, cutting it up, turning it into pulp and then paper, putting some ink on it and then calling it one billion dollars?
Kenneth J. Gerbino, investment manager

Why Invest in Gold?

A clear and balanced investment strategy.

We've picked out 5 arguments that support the view that gold will be a valuable investment in the future:

Limited Supply

Central bank gold sales dropped 46% in 2008, meaning less gold was released onto the open market. At the same time, mining supply has declined for the 3rd consecutive year and may decline by as much as 15% over the next 5 years due to low exploration investment over past the past decade.

Solid Demand

Despite this falling supply, demand for investment gold is up 280% since Quarter 1 2008. Legalisation of private ownership in China has also boosted consumer appetite for the asset. With banks failing around the world, more countries are preserving natural resource profits in gold.

Significant Buyers

China has doubled its gold reserves while a number of other major buyers have been steadily increasing their holdings, such as the Oil producing nations, the Warren Buffet fund, Royal families, NYSE exchange funds as well as a number of private individuals.

Historic Trends

Growth in gold values has been extremely solid on a long term trend, rising by more than 50% in the last 3 years, 150% in the last 5 years and 250% over the last 10 years. Many of the external factors likely to impact on gold prices would suggest that this trend is more likely to continue than to end.

Future Projections

The majority of observers all believe that future price growth in gold will be healthy. The Daily Telegraph predicts a price of $1,500 per ounce in the next year, while ECU are expecting prices to reach $2,000 per ounce by 2010. Merrill Lynch and Citigroup go even further, expecting prices to reach anywhere up to $3,000 per ounce at some point during the next 3 years.
