‘Is all gold equal?’ is the topic of episode 4 of the Goldnomics podcast.

The tangible quality of gold bullion is one of the key factors which contributes to gold’s ability to act as a form of financial insurance for investments, savings and wealth throughout history and again in recent months and years.

We believe investors and savers in the UK, the EU, the U.S. and other western nations will also need the safe haven that is physical gold in the coming months and years.

With this in mind our latest podcast looks at the various ways that investors can “get exposure” to gold, invest in gold and own gold. We investigate which forms of gold investment may actually be increasing the risks in your portfolio and which are the safest.

Stephen Flood, our CEO and Mark O’Byrne our Research Director and well known precious metals commentator discuss this important topic  with Dave Russell.
