We all want to get onto the property ladder, but how can first-time buyers save for a deposit when fiat currencies are losing value and house prices are soaring? House prices are up by around 13% in the UK and 19% in the US over the last 12 months alone! Our research shows that UK buyers can reach the amount needed for a deposit 33% more quickly by saving in gold rather than cash. For US buyers, a deposit could take a whole year less to save for by trusting in gold. Our UK research was covered by the Daily Express, MSN and The Fintech Times.

Another month, another example of central banks burying their heads in the sand over inflation! Last month, US inflation rose quicker than the Fed anticipated, can or will anyone get a grip on the inflation problem? Read our founder & CEO Jason’s concerns about spiralling inflation in Daily Express, Disruption Banking, Fintech Herald and Just Entrepreneurs.
