Why tangible assets? Why with TMNG?

We are currently living in a unique financial system. Never before have we had such low-key interest rates for so long. The outlook and duration of the low-interest rate environment or the expansionary monetary policy are uncertain. The Corona crisis has forced the leading Western economies to continue their low-interest rate strategy. This poses new problems for many financial players and ordinary private citizens today.1011 A savings account currently gives 0.01 - 0.1% interest on the balance in Germany. The interest is too low to counteract the devaluation of money through inflation (on average 2%). Buying stocks is not safe from crises and requires either trust in advisors or doing your own extensive research. Buying tangible assets is not always easy and comes fraught with problems depending on the type (physical, ETF, mining shares). There is almost no possibility for private investors or crypto investors to participate in trading strategic assets.

Cryptocurrency investors have even more hurdles to hedge their crypto gains in the bear market or exchange them for tangible financial assets. There are few recognized gold tokens to date, and there is also very little choice of different metals to achieve a broad portfolio.

Gold, silver, platinum, and palladium are among the standard precious metals and tangible assets that can be purchased as a private individual. Gold has a long tradition as a store of value and 9 medium of exchange. After World War 2 and until the 70s, the dollar was the world reserve currency or anchor currency to most currencies in the world, and the dollar was linked to a direct amount of gold at a fixed price. The so-called Bretton Woods system. Participating countries were required to maintain a specific exchange rate against the dollar (fixed exchange rate system). The member countries achieved compliance with the exchange rate by buying and selling US dollar foreign exchange.

The system was dissolved in the 1970s due to system errors. The USA could no longer provide the quantities of gold of the paying countries. The fixed exchange rate system also led to a distortion of the performance of individual countries. With the replacement of the Bretton Woods system, the exchange rate system changed to a flexible one. The gold peg or gold reserves of the participating countries and the dollar no longer exist. Economies were in the process of restructuring with flexible exchange rate systems offering more flexibility. Some regional zones have evolved into their own currency systems: the euro. With the influx of flexibility and corresponding fiscal policies, not only does a state's sovereignty increase, but so does its responsibility. The stability of a financial system can suffer or falter with appropriate fiscal policies.

The continued 0% key interest rate and negative money deposit rate have several effects on the economy. Banks issue loans more easily than under usual conditions. For example, people purchase Real estate with low interest rates, but it usually increases in price by the supposed interest savings (the real estate bubble, for instance)12. So-called "zombie companies" can be kept alive with cheap credits. Zombie companies can barely maintain their profitability because the cost of capital is correspondingly low.

In case of a sudden increase of interest rates and an adjustment of the repayment rates of expiring credit contracts, many debtors and companies can get into payment difficulties. These complications may lead to a domino effect in the economy concerned. If the low-interest rate policy persists, customary fiscal policy measures to keep inflation in a healthy range may lose their impact. In addition, financial products and their economics change, along with their risk considerations.

The purchase of precious metals offers protection for the redeemed capital.14 Strategic Metals are a novelty not only for private investors but also for crypto investors.

In contrast to the LBMA accredited Basic Metals (gold, silver, platinum, and palladium), they have their own dynamics. Trading of strategic metals is almost exclusively done by the industry. The Strategic Metals are also not held or traded by banks and thus have no directly retrievable exchange price for everybody available. Cryptocurrencies are one of the exceptions in this case. Possibilities for the private person are to inquire about suitable mining shares or with appropriate capital directly with the distributors.

It is crucial here that the purity of the metals corresponds to 100% industrial quality. Refining the metals back to industrial standard is hardly possible, profitable, or otherwise practical. Some metals lose their physical properties (thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, melting point, etc.) with minimal deviation and make them useless for industry and thus worthless for the investor. Our partner, EMH AG, won an award for being the best in the industry in the German- speaking countries for having the highest quality and purity of their metals.

Our partners are among the rare companies that allow participation in this exciting market!
