Credit Suisse Gold Bars
About Credit Suisse Gold Bars
Credit Suisse Gold Bars are one of the most popular, cost-effective, and manageable ways for individuals to own physical gold for private delivery or Gold Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs). Backed by the Credit Suisse Bank of Switzerland, Credit Suisse Gold Bars have been an investor favorite for years. Credit Suisse gold bars come in various sizes and weights that make them easy to move and sell back to the market when desired. However, a solid investment plan requires that the investor seeks to minimize risks associated with the purchase of such commodities. There are several ways to accomplish this goal.
Many individuals add gold coins and other precious metals to their investment portfolios. Acknowledged worldwide by bullion dealers, Credit Suisse Gold Bars can be bought and sold readily and with minimal hassle. The Credit Suisse brand instantly assures the buyer and seller of authenticity, liquidity, and quality.

Each Credit Suisse Gold Bar is marked with its weight, purity, unique serial number, and refiner’s insignia.

Adding Credit Suisse Gold Bars to Your IRA
First, consider purchasing your gold from a trusted source – such as the Credit Suisse Group. This financial services holding company is based in Switzerland but provides financial services to individuals in many nations. It was first established in 1856 to help fund the railway system in Switzerland and had provided loans for this purpose. However, in the 20th century, the business shifted to providing retail banking. Today, it is a member of Wall Street’s bulge bracket – a list of only a few of the biggest and most profitable banks. It is considered one of the most important banks in the world and helps provide greater international financial stability. Purchase bars that carry the Credit Suisse stamp on them.
Another way to protect an investment is to ask for a full assay for large investments. This can be requested with an individual purchase, or it may already be part of the automated process through the “good delivery circuit” as established by the London Bullion Market Association. If the latter is the case, a selection of accredited refiners who have been certified by accredited assayers will manufacture the gold bars and apply specific stamps and serial numbers to the bars before shipping. In order to remain part of this elite group, stringent guidelines must be precisely followed. The elite few who are a part of this group will work diligently to retain their position since the vaults where they ship their bars only accept bars from this entity. This system helps to provide a paper trail regarding which parties came in contact with the bars and guarantees that they were manufactured in an approved facility.
