Why Gold & Why GoldSwitzerland – There are times in history when protecting your wealth should be the primary objective of your investment strategy. As Mark Twain said: “I am more concerned about the return of my money than the return on my money.” To preserve wealth in a fragile financial system, history has proven that it requires acquiring hard assets which have no counterparty risk and which protect against open currency debasement. 

Gold is not an investment, it is ‘real money’. Gold has no rival in protecting informed investors against governments ongoing deceitful action in destroying the value of paper/fiat money.

Matterhorn Asset Management (MAM) has invested in physical gold for clients since 2002. In 1913 you could buy nearly 50 oz of gold for $1,000. Against real money – GOLD – the dollar has fallen 98% since the 1913 creation of the Federal Reserve Bank. But it is not only the dollar that has depreciated in value. All major currencies have lost 97-99% against gold since 1913. Until 1971 the US dollar was backed by gold. Since Nixon abolished the gold backing, money printing started in earnest and in the last several decades the dollar has lost 98% in real terms.



Switzerland is one of the oldest, safest and most stable jurisdictions in the world with its unique system of direct democracy.

– This gives the power to the people and the cantons (states) with a much reduced role for central government”

– Gold ownership and storage is well engrained in Swiss society. Switzerland refines 70% of the gold in the world and produces the highest quality gold bars. Gold accounts for 29% of Swiss exports which makes it a strategically important industry”
