Gold Reflects The Destruction Of Paper Money
Egon von Greyerz is the Founder and Managing Partner of Matterhorn Asset Management AG (MAM) and GoldSwitzerland based in Zurich, Switzerland. MAM specialises in wealth preservation for high net worth individuals as well as institutions.
GoldSwitzerland is the precious metals division of MAM. GoldSwitzerland buys, sells, transfers and stores precious metals for investors. The metals are stored in the name of the clients in ultra-secure vaults in Switzerland. MAM also assists clients in transferring existing gold and silver holdings out of the banking system to the private vaults. Clients have full control of their gold and silver bars which are allocated and segregated. Clients have personal access to the vaults to inspect or collect their metals.
EvG forecasted the current present problems in the world economy over 10 years ago. In 2002 when gold was $300 per ounce, MAM recommended to its investors to put 50% of their investment assets into physical gold stored outside the banking system.
Egon von Greyerz started his working life in Geneva as a banker and thereafter spent 17 years as Finance Director and Executive Vice-Chairman of a FTSE 100 company in the UK.
Since the 1990s EvG has been actively involved with financial investment activities including Mergers and Acquisitions and Asset allocation consultancy for private family funds. This led to the creation of Matterhorn Asset Management an asset management company based on wealth preservation principles. The GoldSwitzerland Division was created to facilitate the buying and storage of physical gold and silver for private investors, companies, trusts and pension funds.
MAM is associated with the Aquila Group, Switzerland’s largest independent asset management group.
