Silver: The Forgotten Metal? A seminar for investors & intermediaries

Is it silver's time to shine? GoldMoney is delighted to present a seminar to explain more about silver's role in the preservation of wealth and for inclusion in a diversified portfolio.

Investors often include gold within a portfolio, and the recent news that physical gold can be included in Jersey pensions has increased its appeal – but silver has its own, often over-looked advantages. GoldMoney is to hold a breakfast seminar looking at the precious metal and its current market potential for investors, on Friday 21st March.

The seminar is to be hosted by GoldMoney's Head of European Business Development, Martyn White: 'For this seminar we will look at why investors might consider silver, as well as providing the latest statistics on physical silver purchases worldwide and exploring some of the fundamental reasons silver may or may not be an attractive purchase in 2014 and beyond, including how it is currently undervalued relative to the price of gold.'

Silver is an industrial metal, not just one used as a currency or for jewellery making. Nearly 60% of silver mined in 2012 was consumed by industry*, and a further 24% went into jewellery making. Due to its excellent electrical conductivity almost all electronics are configured with silver. In addition, over 36 million ounces of silver are used annually in the car manufacturing industry. This demand should rise in line with a worldwide economic recovery.

The free seminar will discuss who the main buyers of silver are, and explore:

  • The gold/silver ratio and its impact on the future silver price;
  • A comparison between gold and silver when considering your asset allocation;
  • A look at the volatile nature of silver's performance over the past few years; and
  • The advantages of diversifying your portfolio with a varying selection of precious metals.


The seminar is taking place on Friday 21st March at the Pomme d'Or Hotel, Jersey. There will be a light breakfast provided in the Liberation Suite from 07.45, with the seminar running from 8am to 9am.
