In case you missed it amid dystopian images of rising debt clocks and an explosion that apparently signifies “political upheaval,” let us point you to two important fine-print disclaimers in this commercial for precious metals seller Rosland Capital.
Investments in precious metals and rare coins are speculative and involve substantial risks. Past performance is no indication or guarantee of future performance or returns.
Market prices are volatile and unpredictable and may rise and fall over time. …
Rosland Capital claims in the commercial — which we plucked from their website — that an investment in gold and silver can provide a level of financial stability that protects you from the so-called “chaos.” But while it’s possible that a precious metals investment can help diversify your portfolio and hedge against inflation, it doesn’t come without its inherent risks.
Remember that commercials like these boil down to sales pitches. Do your research and consult an investing professional who can provide objective advice before making any big investment. And mind the fine print.
