This year’s events have significantly impacted the United States and global economies, and inflation has become one of the greatest threats in 2022. In the U.S., inflation soared from 1.4% in January 2021 to a high of 9.1% in June this year, which led to higher prices of essential goods and made it harder to cover increasing monthly costs with the same income.
People worldwide are looking for a way out of this challenging situation. Still, as Jonathan Rose points out, one of the best ways to fight back is to start earning money on savings.
“There are ways to fight: cutting down the costs, better budget planning, and saving money for the future,” Rose says. “But savings are only good if they can outpace the inflation rate. Keeping the money under your bed isn’t a good idea.”
In this world of inflation crisis, Jonathan Rose sees buying gold as a smart way to add stability to an investment and savings portfolio and as a hedge against inflation. His years of experience taught him that gold is the most resistant and the best metal for investment. Simply because gold has been interwoven into cultures for thousands of years and, as such, is well respected and valued around the world.
As a veteran gold dealer running Genesis Gold Group (GGG) and someone in the gold trading business for over 20 years, Jonathan Rose points out several ways to buy gold. “People can purchase physical gold or even miners’ stock,” he says. However, another clever way of investing in gold is through gold IRAs (individual retirement accounts).
“Gold IRAs are specialized individual retirement accounts that allow people to hold gold and other precious metals as a qualified retirement investment,” Rose adds. “Traditional IRAs usually invest in Treasury bills, U.S. savings bonds, money market funds or mutual funds, exchange-traded funds, and stocks. But none of those investments are in gold and other precious metals.”
As Jonathan Rose explains, gold is a tangible investment and a “safe haven” from inflation as it boasts some of the highest liquidity in the commodity markets. On top of that, it almost exclusively increases in value over time. According to Macrotrends, the value of gold has more than tripled in the last 20 years. It went from $518.21 in October 2002 to $1632.38 in October 2022.
However, he believes that people don’t choose this path because there needs to be more quality information and because it’s not easy for everyone to get their hands on a gold bar. With that in mind, he joined strengths with Brad Garrett and Jacob Diaz and created Genesis Gold Group. Their mission: is to provide people with an easier and more accessible way to invest in precious metals.
Through GGG, they are helping fellow Americans take advantage of a private account that utilizes precious physical metals and other alternative assets, all of which are unavailable with traditional IRA accounts. They work with all kinds of metals, including gold, silver, palladium, and platinum. With that kind of portfolio, they have created a reliable hedge against impending economic crisis and helped many to invest wisely.
Besides that, Rose makes guest appearances on several financial network shows and podcasts. He provides listeners with up-to-date gold market reports and in-depth analyses of current international economic trends. “If you don’t know about an opportunity, how can you take it?” says Rose. “But when it comes to money, people should have all information they need to make an informed decision. If they don’t, high chances are that they will ruin their future.”
And when it comes to the world’s future, experts are shouting all around – “Brace for an economic hurricane!” However, Rose doesn’t like this comparison as it reminds him of something a pilot would say when the plane goes down. The situation is still not that bad, but he points out that the alarm bells are ringing.
Rose points out that being informed and educated is the most critical part of investing and keeping money under control. “Knowledge and information is the moment where realization comes out and moves people away from losing their money,” he says.
“The world has stumbled, and there is a bumpy road ahead of us. The next few years will make or break it for everyone,” Jonathan Rose adds. “But the sooner you start making smart and informed decisions about your future, the better it will be for you.”
