ASI believes adding precious metals to your portfolio is essential. Tangible assets increase your level of diversification while protecting yourself against the ever decreasing purchasing power of the U.S. dollar. Precious metals can provide a hedge against inflation and when economies fluctuate, can help lower overall risk. These assets act as wealth insurance that have profit potential as well. No matter what level of risk you wish to take, we suggest every portfolio diversify with 10-15% in precious metals.

The Three Legged Stool
From the beginning of their partnership, Co-Founders, Glen O. Kirsch and Michael Checkan adhered to the concept of the 'three-legged stool.'
Simply put – Do not hold all your assets in any one:
- country, or
- asset class
We are all familiar with the value in diversifying our portfolio. Today, we painfully appreciate why currency diversity is needed as the U.S. dollar loses buying power. Diversity across countries helps dilute the impact of legislative or regime changes in any single jurisdiction.
Since 1982, ASI has diligently worked to make it easy for you to implement the concept of the three-legged stool as the foundation upon which your portfolio sits.
This foundation of your portfolio should be tested for balance under this rule:
- Does it hedge the dollar?
- Does it help you spread your wealth out geographically?
- Does it further diversify your underlying investments?
A core holding of precious metals can provide all three legs of a stable, prudent portfolio in the purest, most measurable way.
Strengthen Your Portfolio
ASI is ready to help you attain the portfolio allocation we believe will strengthen your portfolio for the future. We agree with the experts that the bulk of your portfolio should be in traditional assets like stocks, bonds and real estate. However, we believe a portion of your portfolio should be in alternative assets with proven track records. These will allow you to better weather an uncertain economic future. These alternative assets act not only as wealth insurance, but also have the profit potential you are looking for.
We have always believed your assets should not be held in any one country, one currency, or one asset class. Therefore, we stand ready to assist you in accomplishing this type of diversification. Call us today to see how your portfolio can be transformed to take advantage of current economic conditions.
