The Cyprus crisis has reignited fear about the eurozone and sparked worry about the fragility of savings held within the UK.
(PRWEB UK) 27 March 2013
The recent Cypriot banking crisis has been a harsh reminder for savers to review how safe their savings are and that not all banks and jurisdictions are safe – boosting demand for gold.
A recent YouGov survey of 2000 investors found that 11% of them said they were more likely to invest in gold following the Cyprus bank crisis. One in four of those living in London shared that view.
Demand for gold coins has doubled since the Cyprus crisis began, with the 1oz Britannia coin the most popular in the UK and the 1oz gold maple lead coin the most popular in other markets.
A spokesperson from Physical Gold said:
“The Cyprus crisis has reignited fear about the eurozone and sparked worry about the fragility of savings held within the UK. This has spurred many investors to consider gold investment to protect their savings as it offers a much more secure protection.”
