Established in 2008, Physical Gold’s track record and market reputation have led to us being a trusted thought-leader in the precious metals market. We’re regularly featured in the press for market comments, insights and research. Our memberships and accreditations help assure our clients that we have the market expertise, structure and processes to provide you with first-rate gold and silver products.
We’re proud members of the British Numismatic Trade Association (BNTA), the leading association for coin dealers in the UK. As such we operate under their strict guidelines and code of ethics. New members’ credentials are vetted and require two existing industry members to vote you into the Association, so integrity and credibility is guaranteed.
Our leading involvement with pension gold led to our membership of the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF), which means we’re kept up to date on all pension developments. The NAPF has now been absorbed into the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI), and as a member we receive the latest regulations, to help us develop new and innovative investment solutions. All our pension bullion adheres to the strict SIPP regulations stipulated by HM Revenue & Customs. We have formed partnerships with around 10 leading pension providers and benefit from each of their guidelines for pension transactions.
In our quest for continued investment knowledge, we’re also members of the Institute of Financial Planners (IFP). This provides updates on the financial world, along with access to a base of Independent Financial Advisers (IFA) – many of whom are teaming up with Physical Gold Ltd to offer gold investment to a wider audience. The IFAs can provide a layer of independent financial advice and a sound, regulatory framework for you to invest in.
Our supplier relationships are with accredited wholesalers, gold assayers and direct trade with many of the world’s mints, including The Royal Mint. Gold or silver purchased from the public is tested and verified by our numismatic team and rejected if it doesn’t meet our strict standards. Regular stolen and fake goods alerts are circulated within the BNTA, so we ensure no sub-standard or counterfeit metals can enter our system.
