Then what is, you ask? Why, gold of course! Sure, diamonds are definitely for show, but it is not such a wise investment. For one, diamonds are subject to tax (VAT in the UK and the EU, sales tax in other countries), so as long as you have them in ownership, you will have to pay for its tax. Plus, compared to gold, diamonds have lower liquidity, which may come from the fact that there is not enough terminal market for it, unlike other commodities. Yes, diamonds are not really forever, well at the very least, not in geologic terms.
With that note, you should be looking to gold as a lucrative investment for the future. Direct investment in gold bullion coins is one of the more popular ways, although of course, it is always prudent to be knowledgeable in all (or some) aspects of your planned investment in gold, if not, have access to reliable overall services of assets managers like those of Aurum Advisors, to ensure complete assistance every step of the way.
Inclusion of gold in your portfolio should be a no-brainer. In highly uncertain times like these, planning wisely for your (or your children’s) future should be top priority.
