Our hard savings are constantly losing value. When I ask customers how much their loss of value is per year, they usually tell me the official inflation rate, which is currently about 2%.
If I ask how they perceive the monetary appreciation emotionally, then they rate the rate of inflation much higher than the official rate of inflation, and quite rightly so. The issue of “inflation protection” is currently so topical as never before, also due to the currently particularly low interest rate interest rates.
The tense situation on the money market has led to the fact that national banks have bought a large amount of gold in recent years. In 2011 alone, they invested six times more money in gold than in 2010. The current statistics confirm that this trend continues: in 2012, the national banks have bought in intensively gold (+ 30% compared to 2011) and will probably continue to do so.
Gold as inflation protection
The purchase of gold is also useful for private investors. Money appreciation or inflation is advancing, but the value of gold remains constantly high and has risen steadily in recent years. With gold you can afford it today, just as a hundred years ago, with money.
It is never too late to invest some of the savings in gold. You can find out how much percent you should invest and what else you should consider in the article “Put money right in gold.” Especially in times of advancing money, gold offers you security and a kind of “inflation protection”. Over many years, gold has proved to be a good and, above all, secure form of investment.
I advise you to invest in gold now. Everyone should have secured a certain portion of their wealth with precious metals.
An old saying is: Whoever has gold has lasting values. If you want to save your money and go against the money evaluation, my team and I will be glad to advise you.
