Wilmington DE (PRWEB) November 01, 2013
Hard Assets Alliance, today announced the launch of MetalStream™, a way for individual investors to build their precious metals holdings with automatic monthly transfers to their Hard Assets Alliance account. Regardless of market fluctuations, investors can take advantage of the price smoothing of dollar-cost averaging. For as little as $250 a month, investors can gradually buy gold or silver on a set day each month. As soon as the metal in the account reaches a whole unit of the preferred precious metal, investors can log into their account and with a couple of clicks, convert holdings into whole bars.
"MetalStream™ is the ideal solution for anyone looking to steadily and methodically build their precious metals holdings and have it effortlessly stored at a non-bank vault," said Ed D’Agostino, General Manager of the Hard Assets Alliance. "For those who look to gold as their insurance against Central Bank money printing, this is the perfect program. Our customers are deeply concerned about what’s happening at the Fed right now and many tend to distrust Wall Street and big banks and are largely skeptical of U.S. fiscal policy."
Benefits include the ability to take advantage of ACH (automated clearinghouse) transfers from bank and brokerage accounts as well as the flexibility to deposit metals into the investors’ account in a secure storage facility in Salt Lake City or Singapore.
"We aim to make precious metals accessible to all. By lowering our minimum purchase to $250 per month and offering physical precious metal that you can store, sell, or take delivery of at any time, we deliver the advantages of precious metal ownership to all investors," notes D’Agostino. "So many people want to invest in silver or gold, but they are worried about the price. MetalStream™ takes that concern away by dollar-cost averaging into a position. It helps people get started with an asset class that we believe all investors should have some exposure to. Owning physical metal that you can either take delivery of or easily sell is the best way to insure yourself against an extreme event."
MetalStream™ is the first service of its kind that allows investors to buy a portion of a gold or silver bar of a size that makes sense to own. MetalStream™ offers 1 oz gold bars and 100 oz silver bars. Those sizes offer the best blend of price and accessibility. Once a customer reaches the point where they own the equivalent of a whole bar, they can convert their investment into the physical bar and leave it in storage, sell it, or take delivery. There is no additional fee for conversion.
