Dealing with IMGold is designed to be as simple as dealing with your bank or building society, but with the peace of mind that comes with knowing your deposits are secured by precious metal.

Our vaults provide secure and cost effective storage for your bullion, whether it has been supplied by us or not. You are free to trade or increase your holding at any time – and you can do so with peace of mind. You are also free to make physical collection and view your holding.

Gold has been an effective store of wealth for thousands of years. In times of economic uncertainty, gold has always been considered a safe haven.
It is said though that the underlying value of gold never actually changes – that its price is simply a reflection of the underlying economy. In 1970, for example, one ounce of gold was £30, which would pay for a hand-made suit. This has been the case in each decade since, and today one ounce of gold will still pay for a hand-finished suit. As a limited commodity, gold is not subject to the same inflation that we see in currencies; the government cannot print more gold.
Long-established patterns show that holding gold:
- stabilises portfolios;
- provides protection from inflation;
- has proved an effective long-term strategy.
Silver has proven to be an extremely versatile metal. Its use in industry ranges from electronics to brazing to chemical production. Its importance has led many to believe it is undervalued, predicting that a rise in value is imminent.
As the popularity of this commodity is increasing more than any other precious metal, there has been unprecedented demand. It is believed that the demand for silver will soon outweigh the supply.
There are many ways to buy into ownership of precious metals – only one has stood the test of time: ownership of the physical metal.
