OUR MISSION: TO KEEP YOUR METALS SAFE.
Who we are...
Global Gold is a precious metals trading and storage firm incorporated in Switzerland in 2007. Global Gold is a subsidiary of BFI Capital Group, an internationally recognized wealth management firm, founded in 1993 and located in Zug, Switzerland.
As a registered member of VQF (Financial Services Standards Association), Global Gold is regulated and regularly audited in accordance with the legal standards and procedures of FINMA, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, especially in regards to combating money laundering and preventing the financing of terrorism.
The mission of Global Gold is simple: to provide the safest possible physical precious metals solution, one that allows our clients to sleep at night, even in the context of a harsh crisis scenario. We avoid exposure to the global banking system and financial markets. Our clients are not exposed to third-party liabilities. They have unemcumbered ownership over their precious metals held with us. When they want their metals delivered, we deliver. When they want to trade, we arrange a fluid transaction at a fair price.
Everything we do, every decision we take, occurs with this mission in mind!
When we founded Global Gold in 2007, we were responding to the needs of our group's clients. They expressed a growing concern over the global financial system. They wanted to safekeep gold in Switzerland - not with a bank, not in a fund, no fractional ownership, no pledging or hedging... At the time, we did not know what would follow in 2008 and after. But, we agreed that it seemed smart to "buy some insurance" with a solid gold program. That is what Global Gold is all about. Today, the need for our service is more relevant than ever.
We have some very smart clients!

...and who our clients are
Savvy, independent thinkers
Our clients - wealthy individuals, families and entrepreneurs - are independent thinkers aware of big picture realities. They seek solutions that meet the challenges those realities pose. They understand the critical importance of jurisdictional and institutional safety granted by a solution which is not dependent on the global banking system.
An increasing number of financial institutions and professional investors recognize the necessity of offering their clients a safe means of investing in physically allocated precious metals. They want to provide a solid solution offering certainty that metals are readily and promptly available for sale or delivery at all times, even if there is a severe monetary crisis.
Why invest in Gold
Public debt, on a global scale, is your greatest enemy
We live in a period of increasingly radical fiscal and monetary policies. The level of government intervention in financial markets and the private lives of citizens has reached a scale that calls for thorough consideration and preparation.
Excessive increases in the money supply (monetary inflation) and financial repression have resulted in a substantial misallocation of resources, global economic imbalances and distorted market signals. Seasoned investors know that short-term predictions are extremely difficult or nearly impossible to make. However, what can be said with some certainty is that as governments across the globe continue down their path of quantitative easing, negative interest rates and competitive currency devaluations, fiat paper money will continue to depreciate relative to real assets, and, in particular, relative to precious metals like gold and silver.
It is easy to get lost in the gibberish of daily financial news and spectacle. However, we believe it is important to focus on the big picture and not to get lost in the details. The continuously rising debt burden is the biggest issue in our view.
Wealth preservation is paramount
The leading nations of the world such as the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union and Japan are facing the highest levels of public debt in times of peace. In addition to these high levels of debt, there are unfunded liabilities which have reached unprecedented levels. Considering the aging populations worldwide and increasing unemployment, our social safety nets and financial systems are under enormous strain and unsustainable in the long-term.
In such an insecure economic situation, we are convinced that the preservation of one's wealth is paramount. Or, as Mark Twain put it, "I am more concerned with the return of my money than the return on my money."
"Gold and economic freedom are inseparable. In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. Gold stands as the protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statist's antagonism toward the gold standard."
Alan Greenspan, “Gold and Economic Freedom”, in Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal. Ayn Rand, ed., (New York: New American Library, 1967), 96.
