4 Noteworthy Benefits of Investing in Noble Gold

Gold Bars

Is it worth it to invest in gold? Is gold a good investment? The short answer is: yes. Gold has always been considered a valuable exchangeable asset, and it can be traced back to 550 BC, which is when gold coins were first introduced as a formal currency by king Croesus of Lydia. Today, the shiny metal can be considered even as an investment option. Due to the pandemic, gold prices have surged in an upward draft in a steady momentum going above $2000 and are predicted to be reaching a staggering number of $2300 per ounce, thus making noble gold investments widely considered as a safe haven investment amongst other types of investments in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Still not convinced? Let’s read together with the following benefits of investing in noble gold:

Hedge

Gold Price Rising

Gold can serve as a great hedge for inflation and any other financial instability that can affect your wealth. Other financial investments possess a liability that can damage your bank accounts, such as stock market value dropping or currency inflation. But that is not the case with tangible assets like gold, which moves differently from other investments. This means that when the stock market declines, that won’t necessarily be the case with gold. In correlation with the 2007 to 2009 crash, investments like properties and stock went downhill while gold went up incidentally.

Protection

In the event of an unfair government policy or action, e.g., funds confiscation, freezing bank accounts, etc., you still have gold that can be easily exchanged and widely accepted as an international currency. Having a piece of your wealth segregated outside of a banking system can serve as reliable protection.

Liquid

As mentioned above, gold is easy to sell as it is an international currency. There is always interest regarding gold as it has been proven through history time and time again. This means that there is still a customer base that wants to trade your gold, unlike modern art, priceless artifacts, collectibles, etc., that is niched, difficult, and takes time to sell.

Value

Gold Asset

Gold will forever have value. In the event of an economic crisis that causes banks and any other financial institution to go bankrupt, your noble gold investments won’t go down with the ship and be liquidated like the rest of the stock investment. This is a crucial reassurance because when all else fails, you will still have your physical gold as your plan B.

Consider investing in a gold IRA firm to protect your assets from a financial crisis. It is considered a safe haven by many, and they are not wrong for doing so. Like the old saying, “It’s better to have an umbrella before it rains”.

Benefits of Small Business Loans

business loans

Businesses need funding at different phases like when starting a new project, recovering from losses or expanding operations. Starting up a business, however, is the part where funding is almost non-existent. Entrepreneurs must work out ways of making optimal use of their resources in every possible way. This is not however enough. There are other ways of funding your business, and one of the most suitable ways is small business loans. Below are some benefits of small business loans.

Convenient Repayment

moneyThe flexible nature of small business loans reflects in their repayment options as well. Banks offer such flexibility since they understand the complexities involved with businesses and their plans are accordingly designed. They may provide repayment plans according to the cash flow to avoid the difficulties in financial management. Borrowers also decrease or increase the EMI according to the financial condition of the company. Also, they can choose bullet payments for periodic repayments.

Flexibility

You can select from different kinds of loans to fulfill specific business needs. Different government schemes offer business loans designed for SMEs for starting, upgrading and expanding the facility. Such schemes do not require third-party guarantee or security. The financial institutions themselves provide the guarantee cover.

Low Interest rates

Banks are usually different from private lending institutions, and their interest rates are also low. It mostly happens in the case of government-backed schemes since they are designed for public welfare, not for the benefit of the bank. Interest rates are also not determined just by the loan amount. There are various factors kept in mind like the viability of the business model, the tenure of the loan, the credentials of the borrower and the condition of the company.

Easily Available

loan application form

Most banks and some private lending institutions offer small business loans without collateral. This makes it easy for small business entrepreneurs to avail such loans and sustain their ventures. Online applications provided by banks on their websites have made the process simpler than it used to be.

Grow your Business

Finance, technology, and manpower are essential needs of any business. Finance is however a key aspect which makes it possible for businesses to meet all the other needs. Therefore, the required cash flow can be highly critical for expanding your business since it can be used for various purposes to grow the business. You can arrange another facility or buy the required equipment to speed up your business. Additionally, owners have the freedom to use the money according to their preference. It enables them to utilize the funds depending on the needs of the business.

Banks today are realizing the potential of small businesses and offer small businesses loans. They do this in ways such as funding, expansion plans, financing new equipment, and increasing business inventory.…
