As an independent asset class, precious metals offer unique diversification opportunities to enhance the return and limit the risk of a portfolio of traditional financial instruments.
Investments in precious metals have typically shown relatively stable long-run returns not perfectly correlated with the other major asset classes. Thus, adding precious metals to your total financial instruments portfolio may significantly improve its risk-adjusted returns.
You can buy gold or other precious metals by opening a precious metal account with Baltic International Bank. Unlike with a regular current account, in the case of a precious metal account, troy ounces of precious metals rather than money are credited to your account. At the same time, a precious metal account, just like a regular current account, may be used for payments between the Bank’s customers.
Precious metals in a current account are subject to the Deposit Guarantee Scheme of the Republic of Latvia.
