For centuries, gold has been the preferred way of accumulating and securing wealth—and with good reason. Unlike other investment instruments, gold is a relatively low-risk investment option, as it predictably appreciates in value over time.

At Rush Gold, we’ve broken the traditional barriers of investing in and owning gold and have brought the power of gold into the palm of your hands with our revolutionary app—buy, sell, gift, and pay in gold with just a touch.

For centuries, gold has been prized for its beauty and rarity. In demand for a variety of reasons, gold is considered one of the safer investments due to its versatility and is a great way to diversify an investment portfolio. There are many ways to add gold to your wealth; you can buy gold bars or gold coins, invest in a gold ETF or in gold mining, or by trading in options or futures, for example. The Rush Gold app is a great platform for investors who are looking to buy gold in Melbourne or from anywhere else in Australia, easily and quickly. With a user-friendly design, the Rush Gold app can be used to buy, sell and manage gold all via your phone.  

Why is buying gold considered to be a sound investment?

There are a number of reasons why gold is considered by many to be a good investment. Gold has managed to retain its value over the centuries and is considered a symbol of wealth and power. That is no mean feat, and perhaps why investors like you are looking to buy gold in Melbourne and elsewhere. One of the reasons it retains value is because of its scarcity. Gold is a finite resource, and so demand tends to outstrip supply, maintaining its value. A portfolio that includes gold may provide significant benefits in the form of returns, diversification, liquidity, and performance.  

Regarding returns, while the price of gold fluctuates over time and can show volatility, overall, it is an asset that can show positive returns over the longer term, especially when compared with other major assets. 

Another reason gold may be considered a good investment is its tendency to be counter-cyclical, meaning when the economy is doing well, gold prices tend to be low and as the economy weakens, demand for gold as a form of currency goes up. That being said, there is no predictability into how gold will react to current or historic events. Gold is also considered to be a potential hedge against inflation and currency debasement, so in times of financial upset, gold could be beneficial to your portfolio. 

Furthermore, the market is part of a financial system with many factors that can drive its rise and fall. However, owning gold outright may avoid the systemic risk associated with the market and the financial system. Because gold is a physical commodity owned outright and protected by property rights, the chances of systemic risks are almost negligible.

What is the minimum capital required to invest in gold?

The answer to this question will vary depending on how you are purchasing your gold. One example is buying gold bullion, which is sold in bars. As a single bar cannot be sold in parts, an investor needs to have the funds to purchase an entire bar, which, even when gold prices are dropping, can be substantial. Furthermore, there are delivery and storage costs involved as well. However, with Rush Gold, there is no minimum purchase, so you can buy gold in Melbourne with only a small amount, and then as your income increases or your wealth grows, you can increase the quantity of your gold ownership.
