The best online brokerage and storages fees are not just about the percentages but also whether or not you can identify if there are any hidden / embedded fees that may not be fully disclosed to you regarding your physical precious metals investments.
As you will find we, unlike many competitors, deliberately and clearly separate ALL of our fees from the market-determined price of the physical bullion.
The majority of other companies may show low or no fees just so they can say state they advertise the best online brokerage percentages. What they don't tell you is that they hide their real profit making fees by embedding it in their advertised price of bullion. They deliberately alter the real market buy and sell prices in their favour, which is against your interests.
It's through this difference in the buy and sell price you're offered, known as the price spread, that they make their money by making you pay far more than you should do.
When you work out their price spread, virtually every single one of our competitors are more expensive then GoldVu - some of them outrageously so! Therefore don't get suckered into what on the surface looks like a good deal with their fees.
It is for this reason that to make sure you really do get the best online brokerage fees, the actual market-determined price of the physical bullion and our fees are always clearly separated; here, on our trading platform and on your Trade Confirmation document.
Nothing is hidden - What you see is what you get!
Our best online brokerage basic fees are available to all of our client types and are the same for all of our precious metals products. The basic starting fees are:
