Historically, gold and other precious metals have been how we trade with one another across borders and globally. Gold bars were the original store value before there was such a thing as the US dollar. The gold standard was so consistent in its ability to maintain its value through varying economic cycles that we backed up our dollars with it. Incorporating precious metals into a diversified portfolio as a hedge against the volatility in both the stock and bond markets sounds like a good idea.
In this episode, Malcolm Ethridge speaks with Patrick Yip from APMEX about diversifying investment portfolios with precious metals. Patrick explains why precious metals are a favorable investment during hyperinflation and why so many Americans continue to put their money toward gold and silver despite the approaching cashless society. Patrick then discusses how his company, OneGold, allows people to invest in gold and silver effortlessly through their credit card rewards.
