Only ten years ago British gold sovereigns were being sold for £67.50 and all the professionals were criticising the high price, now look, since then the price has continued to rise yearly and now the same sovereign will cost you £300 or more. What else has maintained that increase? Bear in mind, however, that prices can also fall as well as rise but the smarter customer has a little of many investments in their portfolio, and lets face it a pound note or a share certificate is only a piece of paper backed by a promise and hope.

Despite the current financial climate, decisions taken now could secure the groundwork for your future prosperity. Gold is a solid, tangible asset and not just paper
