Since the 1970s, ICA has recommended clients maintain a portion of their assets in silver. Over the decades the supply/demand shortfall has grown, which is why we believe silver will improve a portfolio’s long-term performance. The fundamentals determining silver’s price historically differ from those affecting other financial assets. Some of these fundamentals include:
- The continued “inflate or die” Fed policy.
- The soaring demand for silver in electronics and medical technology.
- The full depletion of the US silver strategic stockpile.
- The huge increase in the demand for silver from the US Mint.
As a result of these influences, the silver market has experienced several substantial swings in the gold: silver
ratio. Volatility created by outside forces creates valuable opportunities to compound ounces in a client’s portfolio.

What Type of Silver is The Best Investment?
Bullion: Typically this is the most affordable option for adding silver to your portfolio. An economy-of-scale rule applies
to bullion. Size generally dictates the price; usually the larger the product, the lower the price. Fluctuations
in premiums can create more opportunities for compounding ounces. Investors who add large bars to their position typically choose to store their silver.
- 1 oz, 10 oz., 100 oz., and 1,000 oz. products
- Bags of 90% silver dimes, quarters, and halves
Old Silver Currency:
- Bags of circulated Peace and Morgan silver dollars
- Certified semi-numismatics for premium-savvy investors
Where Should You Keep Silver?
Physical, deliverable silver is most commonly shipped to our clients. Clients also acquire silver within a number of retirement vehicles; these ounces are typically held in storage. ICA also provides investors the option of storing domestically and internationally.
Why Invest in Silver?
The objective of any investment is to provide both security and growth potential. However, these terms are
best defined by the investor’s individual circumstances.
