The best precious metals advisers in 2024

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking for high-net-worth individuals in the UK

By Spear's

Precious metals like gold and silver, with their historical significance and intrinsic value, have long been traditional staples of a diversified investment portfolio and remain a cornerstone for those aiming to hedge against economic volatility and inflation. Investors can hold the metals physically, or gain exposure via products such as in derivatives, exchange-traded commodities (ETCs), mutual funds and company stocks.

For high-net-worth (HNW) individuals with investable assets of £1 million or more, precious metals are regarded as useful hedges against inflation, and gold held in some forms has tax advantages. But each metal can present its own set of opportunities and risks.

Navigating the precious metals market requires specialised knowledge and strategic insight and Spear’s advisers offer in-depth market analysis, personalised investment strategies, and access to exclusive opportunities. They are also able to identify emerging market trends that can protect clients against unexpected volatility.

Methodology

In selecting and ranking the best precious metals advisers for HNW individuals, the Spear’s Research Unit conducts extensive research of the market, including interviews with well-informed observers, industry insiders and of course the advisers themselves. These take place both face-to-face, and on video and telephone calls. Candidates for inclusion are asked to fill in a form to provide data and a description of their work and client base. In finalising its selections and rankings, the Spear’s Research Unit employs a proprietary methodology that includes a weighted scoring system. This takes into account factors including an adviser’s standing, reputation, client base, recommendations and testimonials, the firm they represent, their level of engagement with the process and certain industry-specific criteria.
