About Us

Since the 1980s, we have been creating and administering innovative precious metals based investment products and solutions for individuals, families, trusts, and institutions.

We pride ourselves on providing our clients with the most efficient, secure and cost effective direct ownership program for buying, selling and securely storing investment grade physical gold and silver bullion. 

Our Story

Helping investors to discover the timeless benefits of gold.

In the late 1970’s a family business alliance was forged between American and European family businesses. This international multi-family office partnership has created and administered financial products and professional services including Brokerage, Investment Advisory, Fund Administration, Real Estate and Physical Gold.

Each contributing family enterprise brings their individual business expertise as well as their distinct historical and geopolitical perspectives to the table. As a result, we have achieved a proven track record of creating and administering innovative products and services that are responsive to changing regulatory and market environments.

From the earliest days, the partners recognized that physical gold is a vital component of a balanced portfolio during both bull and bear market cycles. Our multi-generational experience that spans two continents has always included a physical gold component.

As a next-generation product offering, Private Client Bullion (f.k.a. Strategic Gold Corporation) is preceded by:

  • Anchor Gold and Currency Trust, a closed-ended mutual fund which invested in gold, currencies and sovereign debt. (1982-2001)
  • Universal Gold Limited, an offshore corporation which confers equity ownership of physical gold. (1990-present)

Maintaining strong fiduciary controls and reporting standards, Strategic Gold’s Clear Title Accounts merge the key advantages of modern financial products, namely: liquidity, transparency, and professional administration; with the benefits of traditional commercial arrangements that involve tangible real assets, namely: no counter-party or capital market risk, and strong property rights.

Clear Title Accounts insure and protect the purchasing power of our clients’ wealth and position it for profit.

Our Company 

Our client services organization and trading professionals are always accessible, whether in person or over the phone. Our focused team of professionals have extensive experience working across business lines and national boundaries to deliver the benefits of Private Client Bullion’s network and knowledge. Our comprehensive services are tailored to deliver the highest level of customer service at each step of the process.

The firm’s clientele includes private individuals, family offices, corporations, management companies, hedge funds, trusts and other entities.


Our mission is to facilitate the broader ownership and safe storage of precious metals – primarily gold bullion – as a means to preserve and enhance wealth and truly diversify one’s assets. The principals of the firm have multi-generational experience in creating and administering programs that help investors own physical precious metals in the safest way possible.


We believe that physical precious metals are the ultimate insurance policy in today’s uncertain world. No other investment offers the same level of financial privacy, while eliminating counterparty risk. Physical precious metals’ value does not depend upon functioning capital markets, banks, or stock exchanges – their value is intrinsic. When financial uncertainty abounds, it becomes increasingly important to hold assets with value that cannot be diluted by government monetary policy. Gold has been a store of value and unit of exchange since the dawn of civilization. In every historic instance of currency devaluation, gold has been the ultimate safe haven asset.


Our comprehensive program, complemented by our extensive experience in the industry maximizes your control, minimizes your risk and optimizes your benefits. Operating with the highest standards, our tradition of professional excellence and integrity exhibited through highly-personalized service has earned our clients’ trust.
