In the past many investments have led people to the poor house. Therefore, one of the best ways to preserve one's finances is through precious metals investing. Precious metals, such as gold and silver, can be very beneficial for one to invest his or her money in since these metals are based on their monetary value.

Allocation of PM's in Personal Portfolios

In the past, many financial advisors used to recommend to their clients that at least 10 percent of one's personal investment portfolio should be allocated to investing in precious metals. Nowadays, this statement still holds truth yet financial advisors are steering their clients towards pool accounts, ETF's and mining stocks rather than the classic coins or bars made up of such metals. All of these options are valid ways to manage one's portfolio but there are some concerns regarding investment in pool accounts, ETF's and mining stocks due to this troublesome economy.

For this reason, many people have once again begun investing in precious metals, in which they con possess such as coins or bars.

Investment Risks

Institutions which organize ETF's and pool accounts are also running the risk of becoming nationalized which also makes investor's beg the question that if they invest, will they end up losing much more?
