    Matthew-Sprott Physical Gold Trust is one possibility. Their gold is allocated and held separately at the Canadian Mint. I am sure there are others like it. Can also hold in Singapore or Switzerland

    I hear constantly to get physical gold but for all of the IRA's out there what are their options? GLD isn't going to work, so IAU or ... ? Help from the group. Thanks in advance.

    Totally absorbing interview. Captivating to listen to the thoughts of one of the brightest minds in global markets being interviewed by a fellow distinguished macro thinker.

    This type of deep thinking is necessary to comprehend that the world's fiat monetary system is crumbling......that's all. When the systemic risk appears again, it will not be in a gentle fashion.

    Looking forward to the next part. ETFs are great and beat actively managed funds hands down, and physical gold is a better bet than any gold strategy. Aside from that, everything else is spot on.

    Uh BM, I am not. I am simply providing feedback to RV to focus on quality interviews (e.g., Lee Robinson -- now THAT was SPECTACULAR). HC charges 1.5%/20% for 1.6% CAGR over 7.5 yrs. Please.

    Gets really interesting around the 30 min mark. We need more "what's next" macro thinking like this.
