What you can do to beat inflation
This Article in Brief
  • Gold protects your wealth from inflation and also shines in times of crisis.
  • The precious metal is a classic addition to a diversified and global portfolio.
  • By saving regularly and over the long term in the Geiger Gold Savings Plan, you acquire shares in premium gold bars made of pure fine gold of the highest purity grade of 99.99 % and can thus build up and secure your assets.
A fascinating and precious metal - gold. It has stood the test of time for more than 2,500 years: Gold has never been deprived of its purchasing power in its history, but persists as a store of value like a pillar of strength. 

Gold is rare and sought-after

Hard to imagine: all the gold ever extracted fits under the first arch of the Eiffel Tower.
In recent years, gold has become an indispensable commodity and is enjoying an ever-increasing demand. Gold cannot be produced artificially and the planet's reserves will eventually run out.

The estimated amount of gold ever mined worldwide to date is 193,500 tonnes, which corresponds to a cube with an edge length of 21.71 metres (source: World Gold Council, as of 2019). Between 2,500 and 3,000 tonnes are mined annually.

Estimates predict that the world's gold reserves will be depleted by 2030 at the current rate of extraction. In concrete terms, this means that from then on it will probably only be possible to extract gold from recycling.

Gold preserves purchasing power in the long term and protects against inflation

For over 2500 years, 50g of gold has bought an average of 550kg of bread.

In the long run, gold has not lost its purchasing power over time. It even survived the hyperinflations of the 20th century. The same cannot be said of the currencies in force in Germany at the time. Historically, gold has earned the fame of being the only world currency that has never completely lost its value in its history. In times of economic crises, when the regular currencies are particularly hard hit by inflation, gold has always been the currency that has endured.

It has been shown so far that the purchasing power of gold has been maintained over longer periods of time. In Neo-Babylonian times, the value of gold was measured in such a way that you could buy about 550 kg of bread for 50 g of gold. Even today, you can still get about the same amount of bread for a 50 g gold bar, even in organic quality.

Your benefit as a saver

The precious metal is a classic addition to a broad and global portfolio. Investing an appropriate portion of your money in the Geiger Gold Savings Plan can be a good way to preserve your assets over the long term.

In the past, the performance of gold was contrary to that of shares or bonds, for example. The precious metal can therefore be suitable for diversification. The result: overall, one's portfolio can become more stable and calm.
If you regularly save smaller sums, you can steadily build up a small gold fortune: By saving regularly in the Geiger Gold Savings Plan (from as little as 25 euros a month), you can compensate for different purchase prices of gold and benefit from the cost average effect.

For example, if gold prices fall, you receive more shares of the precious metal for your savings amount. Especially in rising markets, the cost average effect pays off. By the way: over a period of 20 years, the price of gold in euros has risen by 300%. 

With each deposit you acquire shares in premium gold bars made of pure fine gold - 50-gram premium gold bars "Federal Republic of Germany" with seven security features designed exclusively for the Affluende partner - Allfinanz Deutsche Vermögensberatung.
