Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GoldMoney research director Alasdair Macleod, interviewed by financial journalist Lars Schall for Matterhorn Asset Management's Gold Switzerland, offers what he considers the three primary reasons for owning gold. But just as interesting, Macleod argues that the London gold market is declining because of its lack of transparency, that gold will remain money if only because Asia increasingly says so, that countries are beginning to realize that they cannot be independent if they rely on the U.S. dollar and U.S.-controlled payment systems, and that Germany's Bundesbank has made itself ridiculous by its inability to recover its gold from custody by the United States.

Schall's interview with Macleod is 17 minutes long and can be viewed at Gold Switzerland here:

Own Allocated And -- Most Importantly -- Segregated Bullion

If you do not own segregated physical coins and bars that you can take delivery of, you do not own bullion. International diversification remains key, and Hong Kong, Singapore, and of course Zurich remain the safest locations for owning and storing segregated bullion.
