SMSF Trustees have been adding physical precious metals like gold to their portfolios for many years, attracted to the strong long-term returns, and the qualities precious metals bring to a well-diversified portfolio. Gold in particular is popular, due to its long history as a store of wealth, and the fact it tends to perform so strongly when interest rates are low, or the stock market is volatile.
The physical gold products below are the products typically best suited to SMSF portfolios. They are all investment grade cast bars made at ABC Refinery, an LBMA accredited refinery whose gold bars are accepted in the wholesale bullion market.
These products have the lowest trading margins for physical bullion products, can be easily stored, and are highly liquid, making it easy to both buy and sell.
