Gold trades at an all-time high

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - LIFE -

In­vest­gold spokesper­son GOLD is at an all-time high, and there is no bet­ter time than now to make it part of your port­fo­lio.

Gold re­cently traded at $1 194 an ounce and economists pre­dict that it will even go higher. Gold has al­ways been a safe haven in fi­nan­cially un­cer­tain times and rare gold coins from In­vest­gold grew an av­er­age of 25% a year in the past seven years.

Prod­ucts

In­vest­gold has, for the past nine years, been one of the largest sup­pli­ers of the South African Mint prod­ucts in South Africa and of­fers a wide range of gold coins minted by the com­pany, for ex­am­ple, Kruger­rands, the Protea se­ries, Natura se­ries, R1 and R2 Gold se­ries, South African Pres­i­den­tial se­ries, and so forth.

In­vest­gold is also one of the largest sup­pli­ers in South Afr i ca of bull i on Kruger­rands sup­plied by Rand Re­fin­ery and has de­vel­oped a proud name for its un­be­liev­able pric­ing struc­ture of­fered to South African in­vestors.

In­vest­gold prides it­self on of­fer­ing the best ad­vice in South Africa re­gard­ing in­vest­ment in gold coins.

Mar­ket seg­men­ta­tion

For In­vest­gold there are a few pos­si­ble cat­e­gories by which the mar­ket could be seg­mented. This sec­tion forms the ba­sis for its cur­rent mar­ket seg­men­ta­tion.

Pri­mary cash tar­get mar­ket – where clients can buy gold coins with their per­sonal funds. Pay­ments oc­cur vi a cash, EFTs or cheque de­posits.

Golden Mile Plan (GMP) – where clients can buy gold coins with monthly pre­mi­ums. Up to 19% dis­count on pur­chases can be awarded on long-term con­tracts, as well as free Kruger­rands. This plan of­fers the ma­jor­ity of South Africans an op­por­tu­nity to ob­tain gold coins with monthly pre­mi­ums rang­ing from as lit­tle as R100 a month. What makes this plan so phe­nom­e­nal is that no monthly ad­min­is­tra­tion fees or in­ter­est are charged to clients, which en­ables them to ob­tain gold coins at cheaper rates than when buy­ing with cash. Just a one-off ad­min­is­tra­tion fee is re­quired.

Co-own­er­ship plan – this plan was in­tro­duced in Jan­uary this year and, through this plan, clients have the op­por­tu­nity to own por­tions from as lit­tle as 1% in the value of a coin, al­low­ing them to di­ver­sify more fre­quently.

It al­lows a wider range of coins in their port­fo­lios, there­fore split­ting the risk be­tween fast-and slow-grow­ing gold coins.
