Read the Tuesday Afternoon Wrap-Up for 1/22/2013 and the Wednesday Morning Commentary for 1/23/2013
Once in a while, I need to assert my business side; that is, to remind you I write this blog as much to give Miles Franklin exposure as to educate of the dangers of the financial world.
It’s been a long, winding road; in which I spent more than two decades as a “prisoner” of the increasingly corrupt world of stocks and bonds. During that time, I worked in compliance, stock and bond trading, buy-side and sell-side research, investor relations, and financial consulting; in allcases, either executing financial transactions, or advising which ones to make. Moreover, my CFA designation is perhaps the most difficult to attain in the investment universe – epitomizing my drive to learn.
Sadly, that world has been DESTROYED by illegal and/or unethical algorithms and government manipulation (overt and covert); which is why I fled Wall Street in 2005 – and eventually, ALL paper investments in 2011. Fortunately, I came across David Schectman in mid-2011, who gave me the opportunity to work at the antithesis of the fraudulent PAPER world – Miles Franklin.
I’ve been Miles Franklin’s Marketing Director for 15 months now, and have never felt more positive about my work. Not only do our people care about your well-being, but our pricing is competitive, our service unsurpassed, and – most importantly – our product will PROTECT you.
We have not had a registered client complaint in our entire 23-year history; are innovative in creating services – such as our Brink’s Canadian storage program; and take care of our own. Regarding the latter, I challenge you to find any bullion dealer that does not charge “buyback” commissions to its clients. In other words, if you buy your coins from Miles Franklin, we will NOT charge a commission if you sell them back to us in the future.
As much as I LOVE helping people understand the world’s financial hurdles, I also seek to make a good living. Each week, at least 40 hours are put into this newsletter, plus 3-5 hours on podcasts, radio shows, webinars, and other presentations. David Schectman – in semi-retirement – puts in at least half this amount, while Bill Holter is now writing essentially every day. In other words, hundreds of hours of content each month, all for FREE; not to mention, the dozens of emails we promptly respond to.
Considering these services, which if sold would cost quite a bit, I ask for but one thing in return – to “GIVE US A CHANCE” when interested acquiring Precious Metals. Whether buying, selling, or storing, we want to earn your business; and thus, we simply ask you to give us a call. And by the way, our online purchasing platform is planned for launch this Spring, giving clients an additional option for buying Precious Metals from us.
From all of us at Miles Franklin, thanks in advance!
