Why Your Financial Advisor Doesn’t Recommend Physical Precious Metals
There are three main reasons why many financial advisors don’t recommend physical precious metals as a viable investment option:
1.They are not allowed to sell precious metals.
The truth is financial advisors are licensed only to recommend publicly traded securities and anything that is not a publicly traded security is not covered by their license.
This is why some financial advisors may recommend precious metal Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) or mining stocks as a way of tapping into the growth that is occurring in the precious metals market instead of recommending investing in precious metals themselves.
Unfortunately, investing in ETFs and mining stocks is not the same as investing in precious metals, which are actual tangible assets. ETFs and stocks, which are not actual tangible assets, are susceptible to a number of factors the precious metals may not be susceptible to, including: stock market volatility, inflation, company earnings and corporate fraud.
2.They do not make commissions or fees on precious metals.
One of the benefits of investing in precious metals is that they do not have any management fees. Of course, while this makes them attractive to investors it also makes them not so attractive to financial advisors who typically can earn 2% to 5% annually for managing a client’s portfolio.
3.They don’t really understand precious metals.
Since financial advisors’ licenses don’t cover precious metals they don’t receive extensive training on them. Basically, financial advisors’ educational materials refer to gold and silver as jewelry and not as effective investment options.
If you want to invest in precious metals or learn more about the benefits of investing, you will need to contact a reputable private firm, like RC Bullion.
