Physical Gold Fund SP has registered with the FCA


LONDON, May 23, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ – Physical Gold Fund SP (PGF) has registered with the FCA within the United Kingdom. PGF is now permitted to market within the United Kingdom through the National Private Placement Regime.

“This opens the door for UK institutions and citizens to own gold in what we believe to be the most secure and safe way possible,” says PGF Managing Director Alex Stanczyk, “The constant feedback that we receive from investors is that people have had enough of being taken advantage of by financial institutions that do not have their best interests at heart, and are looking for something real to preserve their hard earned savings.  We have taken a good look at what is available in this space, and have designed PGF from the ground up to avoid risks other gold products have by vaulting outside the banking system with the world’s top security logistics firms, clearing trades directly with refineries instead of banks, and by developing unique protocols to mitigate political risk. I am confident that this Fund is the most robust, secure, and thoughtfully constructed physical gold fund in the world today.”
