Precious Metals



Gold is money. Everything else is credit.

Gold provides a way of diversifying investment portfolios and mitigating risk. Of all the precious metals, gold is by far the most popular for investment.

Invest in gold

Gold has shown an ability to provide capital growth over the long-term. As a relatively liquid, but non-correlated asset, gold might be considered as an insurance against the fall of other investments, such as equities and bonds.

Please see our News & Insights page for more information on the role that gold can play in your portfolio.

Ravenscroft for gold

Ravenscroft deals only in investment gold bullion, as defined by HM Revenue & Customs, from globally-renowned refineries, all of whom are members of the London Bullion Market Association. Owing to the stringent assaying and quality criteria that such applicants must satisfy in order to attain accreditation, this membership is universally recognised as the de facto standard for the quality of bullion. We hold our clients' bullion in the exact form, purity and size that they have requested us to purchase - not like the 'fractional ownership' model pursued elsewhere.

We're also committed to flawless service

Our aim is to provide excellence in precious metals for our clients regardless of their location, home currency, time zone or language. We are here to discuss your specific needs and cater to your requirements.

The manufacturers of precious metals would rather spend their time and effort pouring metal into one large cast than into more than one smaller cast.
