Gold is a unique asset: highly liquid, yet scarce; it’s a luxury good as much as an investment. Gold is no one’s liability and carries no counterparty risk. As such, it can play a fundamental role in an investment portfolio.
Private Hedge Holdings allows investors to buy physical gold online and have it stored on their behalf. The landscape of such products has grown significantly over the last decade and new players are continuing to emerge, with the largest providers now holding billions of US dollars worth of gold on behalf of investors.
The IIG Investor Guidance aims to help investors understand how to invest in gold online, differentiate between providers and assess which products best meet their needs, while the IIG Product Provider Guidance defines sound practices for providers of Internet Investment Gold products through laying out a blueprint of recommended best practice.
With this type of impressive growth, it’s no wonder that many investors are interested in investing in publicly traded cannabis stocks.
