ICA’s Swiss Storage Programs are turnkey and one of a kind. With the current global economic uncetainty rising, ICA wanted to give its investors two options for safely buying and storing precious metals in Switzerland. Our clients have the option of buying and storing gold bullion and European semi-numismatic coins in Switzerland, 1) through a US-based company, or 2) having the option of buying and storing all four of the major precious metals (gold, silver, platinum, & palladium) in Switzerland through a Swiss-based company. We’ve done all the work for you. You need to decide if you want your assets in a safe place.
ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL UNCERTAINTY
It is becoming increasingly obvious to investors worldwide that most traditional investments are not as safe or reliable as they once were. If that wasn’t enough, the U.S. dollar is suffering the predictable consequences of the unrestrained expansion of our money supply. Both economics and history teach us that the dollar’s value must decrease, while the prices of goods and services must increase. The only thing that we can be sure of from the greatest expansion of the money supply in U.S. history is the greatest subsequent inflation rate in U.S. history. Not surprisingly gold continues to rise as investors recognize the seriousness of the current situation. With the Obama Administration in the White House, they will likely make a number of economic mistakes – mistakes that will cost us dearly. We expect higher taxes on payrolls, income, capital gains, property, and inheritances.
We expect restrictions on currency exchanges. We also expect restrictions on the amount of money you can move in and out of the country. In other words, we expect a further loss of our personal, economic, and perhaps even our religious freedoms. So what do we do?
One of the most practical decisions that an investor can make is to safeguard some assets by moving them overseas. To many, this may seem like an overwhelming or daunting task, but believe me, the idea of owning assets outside the U.S. has moved from exotic to mainstream.
In fact, we can no longer afford to ignore the very real threats to our liberties here in the U.S. As the consequences of the moral and economic decline in America are felt, the U.S. Government will move to protect itself at the expense of its citizens.
ABOUT THE SWISS STORAGE PROGRAMS
The first question was “WHERE?”. It didn’t take us long to decide on Switzerland. No country has a longer history (over 300 years) of being a safe-haven in time of crisis.
The second question was “WHAT?”. Again, it didn’t take us long to decide. What better or more reliable asset is there than gold. (And now all of the precious metals are available)
“HOW?” was the final challenge, but even that has turned out to be easier than expected. In fact, it is so convenient that investing overseas is just as easy as purchasing gold here in the U.S.
(See option A below).
ICA has an exclusive relationship with one of the oldest and largest precious metals depositories in the U.S. Because of their international storage facilities, they are able to offer our investors a unique storage account. By simply purchasing gold from ICA, through Delaware Depository Service Corporation (DDSC), our clients have the option to designate their precious metals to be held in Switzerland. Amazingly, the gold is purchased from a U.S. firm, accounted for through a U.S. firm, but physically shipped to and stored in Switzerland.
(See option B below).
The other option is to buy and store all of the major precious metals in Switzerland through a Swiss-based company. This Swiss-based company is Global Gold www.globalgold.ch and is part of the McAlvany Financial Group. Unlike the U.S.-based option, your precious metals storage agreement is solely Swiss-based. The idea behind owning precious metals through a Swiss-based company is the ability to have ultimate security while safeguarding your assets from economic and financial uncertainty in the U.S. Switzerland is a country with a legacy of monetary and financial stability. Switzerland has developed a culture given to precision and risk management, a perfect culture for the diversification of global wealth and security.
