As investors search for a safe way to provide financial stability in an uncertain economic climate, leading UK gold dealer Physical Gold announces the benefits of investing in gold.

With experts suggesting that at least 20% of holdings should be gold, Physical Gold explains the benefits of investing in gold.

The ongoing uncertainty of the world’s economic climate has left many investors worried about the future of their financial assets. However owning physical gold can prove a safe hedge to anyone suffering value losses to property and can reduce the overall volatility of a portfolio.

With experts suggesting that at least 20% of holdings should be gold, Physical Gold explains the benefits of investing in gold.

1.    Thanks to its indestructibility, relative scarceness and inability to be manufactured, gold has proved one of the least complex and risky ways of investing. As there is only a finite supply of gold on the market, it can experience impressive price rises when demand increases. Gold production cannot simply rise to match the demand; therefore the price of gold is pushed higher.

2.    Gold investment has little risk of devaluation as lower prices attract new demand, which fuels a price increase once again. Gold is regarded as a safe product that investors can turn to in economic downturns with its performance being apolitical and independent of any country’s agenda.

3.    In its physical form, gold has no risk to any counterparty. Following increased speculation of the safety of investment, physical gold avoids the counterparty exposure investors in gold stocks, futures and options are open to.

4.    There are tax advantages to owning physical gold, as there is no VAT on investment gold. Capital Gains Tax is another avoidance, as there is no tax on profits of UK sovereign and Britannia coins because they are considered legal tender. Qualifying gold bars can also benefit from a tax relief of up to 40% as part of a pension.

5.    Gold is internationally recognised and trusted, which means a worldwide network of dealers are available 24 hours a day to provide the latest gold prices.

6.    With its longstanding historical heritage, gold coins can prove a valuable lasting heirloom. Thanks to their collectability, many investors take pride in their coin portfolios, keeping them within the family for generations.
