What's really in your fund?'s latest advert was a newspaper piece titled 'What's really in your fund?';
a piece designed to highlight the benefits of owning physical gold - a liquid asset - at a
time when investors are at risk from investing in funds and shares that might not
possess the same ease of selling.

The advertorial also advocates the advantages of holding physical gold, in that you
the investor are not subject to any counterparty risk.

The advert was published on Sunday June 9th, 2019 in the Sunday Express, Sunday
Times, and Sunday Telegraph, as well as again in MoneyWeek shortly after.

Britons watch their pockets, portfolios ahead of Brexit vote.

WSJ As the fall in sterling prompts a rush to exchange pounds, some dump U.K. equities and buy
gold. Polls were pointing to a U.K vote to leave the European Union and the pound was falling.
As the June 23 vote loomed, some Britons wanted to buy other currencies in case a vote for a
so-called Brexit caused sterling to plunge further.

The price of gold is up by 22% this year-to-date, with global concern over the British referendum
being one of the factors cited, analysts say. While that buying will have been driven by global
investors and Asian consumers, Brits have also been stocking up on gold.

Bullion By Post, the UK’s largest online bullion dealer, said it was expecting June to be its busiest
month ever on the back of Brexit-linked uncertainty, peaking at the end of next week.

My First Million - Rob Halliday-Stein

FT Logo Read how entrepreneur Rob Halliday-Stein, 37, founded BullionByPost in 2008, using
£10,000 from his mother’s will. After his mother’s death, Halliday-Stein invested part
of his inheritance in physical bullion. Put off by the unfriendliness and high premiums
of traditional dealers, he recognised a gap in the market for the small investor, which
coincided with the banking crisis.

The company, which employs 25 staff, has handled over 100,000 deliveries and in
2013-14 sales hit £96m. Since April last year the company has offered a new bullion
storage service in partnership with secure storage firm
Brink’s .

IN DEPTH: A bright future for silver?

Annual silver hallmarking figures have declined by six million articles in the past decade, but as the silver price eases, jewellery brands are reacting with fresh designs tailored to fit customers' spend.

The Professional Jeweller speaks to wholesalers, British brands and bullion dealers, including Rob Halliday-Stein, founder of BullionByPost, about what’s new and next for the white metal.

Despite the changing tastes of consumers and the shift in jewellery trends creating a melting pot of innovative silver brands, Halliday-Stein highlights the two types of consumers buying silver from the UK’s leading online bullion dealer, BullionByPost, “We have two customers buying silver; one for long term investments – people who are tucking something away for decades mostly who don’t intend to sell it anytime soon – and the people buying it for gifts. Coins and small bars are very popular for christenings still and the current prices make silver look attractive again, which is obviously a good thing in terms of gifting and jewellery.”

Indian silver imports fall as gold curbs ease

Professional Jeweller speaks to Rob Halliday-Stein, founder of BullionByPost, about the easing of import restrictions on gold into India and its side-effects on silver demand.

With India easing the restrictions on importing gold, Reuters have suggested that the demand for silver is likely to fall from the record high levels experienced in 2013. India, which currently accounts for 20% of the world silver consumption, tripled imports of silver in 2013 after restrictions on gold imports were put in place in a bid to cure a high current account deficit and combat illegal smuggling.

However, questions have been raised as to whether the industry should read too heavily into the situation in India. Halliday-Stein said, “The long term picture for silver is governed by so many factors it’s difficult to predict” and later stated that the “fundamentals for silver are still very strong.”

Striking Gold: Rob Halliday-Stein Striking Gold - Rob Halliday-Stein

In a downturn, strong, fast-growth businesses are like gold dust: we need them if our economy is to grow and thrive. Birmingham's BullionByPost is well and truly a child of the recession.

All too often we hear about the losers of the recession; tales abound of businesses – large and small – going to the wall. Just last month, HMV and Blockbuster, two of the high street’s best-known brands, hit the runners.

And then, every once in a while, a business emerges triumphant, like a phoenix rising from the ashes of our once-thriving economy. BullionByPost is one such firm. The founder of the Birmingham-based business, Rob Halliday-Stein, struck gold when he realised that the banking industry had gone to the dogs and people were looking for other ways and means to invest their cash.
