With the heightened political turmoil in the UK surrounding Brexit but also the US presidential elections and daily reports of terror attacks around the world – investing in physical gold has become the safe option. In an article written by Paloma Kubiak of yourmoney.com entitled; “Gold soars as investors seek safety: how to access the precious metal” the writer talks about the various ways in which investors can access gold and the number of established gold bullion and coin dealers in the UK. Whilst there are a selection of online bullion dealers (or Bullion merchants as Toby Walne from the Daily Mail likes to call us) to choose from it’s important that you feel comfortable with the company you are buying from. Some are online shops whereas and others are more aligned to gold investment. We are often referred to as a gold investment firm.

Case Studies of people purchasing physical gold and positive reviews
Using customer reviews or case studies of people who buy physical gold from a UK gold dealer can be a reliable indicator of the type of company you should be speaking to. Ekomi.co.uk provide independent 3rd party reviews from real customers who have made a gold purchase. If in doubt – companies who have testimonials from clients that are happy to be named or even photographed should rest your mind at ease. The most important element when purchasing physical gold especially for the first time is that you feel comfortable with the company you are dealing with. Don’t feel pressured by the company or market pressures to jump in with both feet. We often find that getting started with something small is a good way to test the market.
