Investment gold

Gold bullion purchase is the most traditional way of investing in gold for the purpose of savings. About 1000 tons of gold bars are sold in the world per year.
Gold is a unique asset class, as studies have shown - allocations to gold of 2 per cent to 10 per cent can protect and enhance the performance of an investment portfolio.

Switzerland is the largest importer and exporter of gold due to 4 largest refineries that are located in the country (Argor-Heraeus, Metalor, Pamp and Valcambi). Two-thirds of the world’s gold goes through Swiss companies and, in an average year, they refine over 2.700 tones
