The world is far from a peaceful, stable place. Geopolitical tensions seem to increase, and then subside, but most every storm has been weathered to some extent or another. Those that believe this to be as cyclical as the weather will allude to the fact that every generation has faced its own set of crises, many of which may have been worse than current events, only to have prevailed and come out stronger as a result. And although this is true, if one examines the broader story arc of where things are going, the big picture does raise some concern.
Financial security is grounded in the components from which it is comprised. Political stability yields financial stability – yet our country is more polarized than ever before. Access to resources it vital to continuity of the existence we have built – and yet rising tensions in parts of the world that control this access are causing great trepidation. Environmental issues are real, whether you are of the ‘global warming’ school of thought or not. Man-made contamination of our world in itself belies some unfavorable consequences, without consideration to whether the global temperature has risen by a degree or not. Our position as the world’s warden is being more frequently challenged, as a variety of international players assert themselves by questioning why any one nation should dictate their affairs. With how interconnected and interdependent our world has become, a serious disruption of any single element within this delicate and frail balance would have negative financial ramifications cascade through all aspects of our livelihood.
With so many unknown variables at play simultaneously, how can one infuse some financial certainty into your assets? The answer is precious metals. When currencies falter, precious metals appreciate. Diversifying your portfolio with gold, silver or platinum is an easy way to ensure that all of your eggs are not in the same basket – especially considering that the ‘basket’ is a pretty fragile contrivance. Stocks can come and go; monetary systems can rise and fall. Every transaction depends wholly on the grid that facilitates our modern age, which is also increasingly susceptible to compromise. But precious metals are tangible, and withstand all the tests of time.
