The Real Asset Company – A secure, simple and efficient way to invest in gold, silver and other real assets


The Real Asset Company offers a secure and efficient way to invest in gold, silver, other precious metals, diamonds and fine wine.

The Real Asset Company provides a live and transparent marketplace, with an easy to use next generation portfolio management platform. Our customers fund their account via bank transfer and can then purchase as little as 1g of bullion, 1 point of a diamond and fractions of a case of wine.

Based on prices as of 03.10.2011, investors can participate with a minimum investment of £35, meaning that for the first time, consumers have a simple and secure way of accessing gold, silver, precious metal and other commodity underlying assets.

Professionally verified assets are allocated to our customers, who take direct ownership of their investment at the point of sale. Client assets are stored with industry leading storage partners and customers can verify their holdings 24/7. Complete transparency is required by today’s understandably more cautious and critical investor. The Real Asset Company is easier to use, more transparent and efficient than investors in real assets have previously been used to.

The Real Asset Company was founded by Ralph Hazell, the CEO, in 2010 as a response to his concerns about increased risk in the financial system and widespread currency debasement. With 12 years of experience in the markets, and like other independent traders who had looked deep into the workings of the financial system, Ralph had concerns with what he saw.

Ralph comments that:

Having seen the risks in the financial system manifest themselves a number of times, putting peoples’ saving at risk, and seeing a lack of trust in traditional investment products, we started The Real Asset Company to offer individuals a new service we felt investors were looking for.”
