Portfolio Diversification Starts Here

By Erin Fischer

Sometimes, don’t you wish there were an easier way to invest in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium—one that were as simple as buying just one of the metals? Let’s back up for a second, because there is…

Now before we get started, let’s address the elephant in the room. You may be wondering, “Why would I buy precious metals right now, when prices are down so much?” Well, actually, that might be exactly why you should consider adding precious metals to your portfolio. With gold and silver recently touching 2- and 2 ½-year lows, respectively, now is an excellent opportunity to secure precious metals at a discount. But you may want to act sooner rather than later, because we have reason to believe prices could soon shift…

Today’s Gold/Silver Ratio (GSR)—or the number of ounces of silver required to buy one ounce of gold—has many investors wondering if this could be the bottom for both gold and silver. In fact, following their drops to $1,054 per ounce and $13.85 per ounce, respectively, in December 2015, both metals rallied significantly in the months following.

Historically, whenever the GSR reaches or exceeds 80, it has corrected back to somewhere between 35 and 50 as both gold and silver prices move higher, with silver outpacing gold to the upside. Right now, the GSR is near 85. If the past is any indication, gold and silver could soon be in for another bull market like the one that started in 2001. But back to how you can seamlessly own all four precious metals… 

The PMC Ounce™—You Can Have It All

As we mentioned above, you don’t have to forsake simplicity to enjoy the diversity of all four precious metals. With the PMC Ounce™, or the Precious Metals Composite, all you have to do to start reaping the benefits of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium is make one simple purchase. Yes, just one. 

The PMC Ounce™ contains a fixed fractional quantity of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium—all backed by 100% physical metal. This is not a fabricated coin, round, or bar; rather, each PMC Ounce™ is backed by physical metal stored at a secure facility. In fact, if you want to take advantage of the low storage rates available for the PMC Ounce™, you can even store other approved bullion products in the account! 

Furthermore, there are no derivatives or securitized instruments either within the vaulted and insured inventory for the PMC Ounce™ or between the individual investor and the underlying assets. Therefore, it is free of the counterparty risk associated with exchange traded products or funds. It’s as simple as choosing how many PMC Ounces™ you want and sitting back as your investment does its thing. Here are some of the benefits of this investment… 

  1. Weighted and diversified: Each PMC Ounce™ provides a turn-key, diversified physical precious metal “portfolio” that is logically weighted based on the specific attributes associated with each metal type. 
  2. Blended return: The price movement of the PMC Ounce™ is directly correlated to the live market price changes of its component metals, thereby delivering a blended return in real-time. The composition of the PMC Ounce™ eliminates the need to attempt to market-time the trading of a broad precious metals portfolio. 
  3. Volatility control: Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium do not move in lock-step. Therefore, the diversified and blended return for the PMC Ounce™ tempers the higher volatility associated with investment positions consisting of just one or two bullion types. 
  4. Secure and insured storage: The inventory for the PMC Ounce™ is secured with the insured vaults of a non-bank bullion depository. 
  5. Real-time trading: The PMC Ounce™ trades in real-time, and its price is directly calculated by the real-time price of each of the component metals. 
  6. Liquid: The PMC Ounce™ is liquid, and investors in this dynamic asset are just a phone call away from executing a buy or sell order. 
  7. Convertible for delivery: The PMC Ounce™ offers a simple and easy convertibility and delivery option. 
  8. Confiscation hedge: The PMC Ounce™ allows investors to combine and capture the benefits of each metal, including store of wealth, inflation hedge, currency hedge, and unique industrial applications. Because the metals that comprise a PMC Ounce™ are stored at a non-bank bullion depository and allocated in the owner’s name, your metals are safe from government confiscation.
