The SMSF Club Metal Desk

The SMSF Club Metal Desk

Metal Desk is a joint initiative between The SMSF Club and Bullion Capital to enable SMSF investors to own allocated physical precious metals – Gold, Silver, Platinum can all be purchased using our interactive trading platform.

The custom-built trading platform, Metal Desk, has been specifically designed to make physical bullion trading simple, secure and efficient for SMSF Trustees.

Why Own Precious Metals within your SMSF

The unique properties of allocated physical precious metal allow you to diversify your investment portfolio.

Allocations to precious metals as an asset class have been proven to reduce portfolio risk.

Precious metals have a long history as a store of value, while remaining relatively uncorrelated with the equity markets. These features make precious metals highly useful as both a hedge against inflation and as a protector from deflation.

Being virtually indestructible and having no liability attached to it, physical gold has preserved wealth as a safe haven asset throughout the ages.

With Metal Desk you hold allocated title to your gold, silver or platinum investment. This ensures that your ownership remains intact and that your investment is always your outright legal property; you have made a true safe haven investment.

Buying and Selling Allocated Physical Bullion:

You can now invest in allocated physical gold, silver and platinum using an online platform in the same way that you would trade shares.

Multiple organisations (liquidity providers and market makers) located around the world provide live pricing 23 hours a day, 5 days a week.
