In the late 1970’s a family business alliance was forged between American and European family businesses. Today, this is identified under the banner of Universal Services Inc. This international multi-family office partnership has created and administered financial products and professional services including Brokerage, Investment Advisory, Fund Administration, Real Estate and Precious Metals.
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 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 gold component.
As a next-generation product offering, Strategic Gold is preceded by:
- Anchor Gold and Currency Trust, a closed end 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 counterparty risk, no 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 in the event of systemic disruptions.
Strategic Gold Corporation is a company whose sole purpose is to facilitate direct and uncompromised ownership of precious metals by bringing investors to the Primary Bullion Market through the Clear Title Program.
We believe that risk management is fundamental to our mission. The Company was created to respond to the systemic risks to the financial system identified during the financial crisis of 2007-2009 and which are still an ongoing threat.
We hold that the only way to insure against systemic risk is to directly own reserve assets and safe haven assets which are held outside the financial system. Direct ownership of physical gold and silver uniquely meets this criterion since they are the only non-financial assets that are highly liquid and easily held outside of the financial system.
Key Features of Our Program:
- Diversification of Portfolio with Direct Ownership of Fully Allocated Physical Bullion
- Access to the Primary Bullion Market (one of the largest capital markets)
- Best price execution: Immediate Order Execution at the Spot Market Price
- Liquidity: Purchase and Sell at Your Discretion; no lock up period
- Secure Global Storage Options
- Quarterly Independent Audit Statements
- No burdensome reporting requirements
- Flexible solutions to meet individual goals
- Ongoing support and education
We provide administrative services and accredited safekeeping so that your precious metals investment fits seamlessly within the mechanisms of a modern portfolio.
Precious metals purchased through your Clear Title Account are manufactured by refiners recognized by the LBMA for their production of good delivery bars. Through Strategic Gold’s trading account in the Primary Bullion Market, a network of institutional dealers and refiners, clients are ensured that they are getting the most competitive prices in the wholesale market.
We have access to the Primary Bullion Market, the wholesale, over-the-counter market usually reserved for Central Banks, Bullion Banks, Government Agencies and large institutional traders. Due to our longstanding position in the market, we are able to give retail investors the ability to buy smaller quantities of gold bullion or silver at the wholesale prices usually reserved for these larger entities. We pride ourselves on giving our clients access to the best prices available.
Because of our longstanding relationships in the Primary Bullion Market, the Clear Title Program delivers significant advantages to our clients by giving them the ability to quickly and efficiently purchase and sell their precious metal holdings at prices generally reserved for large institutional customers in the Primary Bullion Market. Therefore, clients enjoy the wholesale Spot Market Price advantage usually reserved for large traders, refineries, fabricators, government agencies, Central Banks and Bullion Banks.
A key value of your Clear Title Account is its simplified fee structure.
Strategic Gold charges a transaction fee on purchases and sales. There are no fabrication fees, no vault in/out fees and no other hidden premiums or commissions that are added to your purchase/sale price.
Administrative Services Fee
Clients in the Clear Title Program are assessed a comprehensive annual Administrative Services Fee of 3/4 of one percent of the market value of their gold bullion holdings (.0075 x Value of Gold Bullion) and 7/8 of one percent of the market value of their silver bullion holdings (.00875 x Value of Silver Bullion). The annual fee is billed to clients on a quarterly basis and covers all of the services and features of the Program, including:
- Custody & Secure Vault Storage
- Quarterly Audits
- Administrative Services and Reporting
Strategic Gold Corporation delivers transparency, ease of transaction and substantial price advantages to you by giving you the ability to purchase and sell gold at the Spot Market Price in the Primary Bullion Market.

- ADDITIONAL RESOURCES:
- Login to the Clear Title Client Portal
The Clear Title Program fully protects our clients’ identity and bullion holdings. Your information is kept at our corporate office in Naples, Florida. This information will not be released for marketing purposes or shared with any third party organization. An electronic copy of your documents is made.
At Strategic Gold we are focused on delivering complete client satisfaction, which includes respecting client privacy. As part of this approach, clients are not identified by name to partner companies that deliver services to the Clear Title Program.
Strategic Gold places special importance upon client confidentiality. All client information is encrypted and stored on our secure servers. These servers are physically isolated and cannot be accessed through the Internet. Redundant backups are stored offsite in a secure facility. To ensure discretion and confidentiality, all statements and transactions are processed on our system by a coded client identification number and held encrypted on our secure servers.
No. Strategic Gold is not a bank since it does not make loans. More importantly, Strategic Gold is not a deposit taking institution, and no deposit liability is created because each specific bullion bar under our administration is allocated to a specific Clear Title Account and is directly owned by the accountholder at all times.
Furthermore, Strategic Gold does not engage in bullion market speculation nor the employment or use of margin trading, futures, hedging or derivative positions or incurring indebtedness of any kind.
No. Strategic Gold is not a collective investment scheme because assets are not commingled. Furthermore, we do not offer pooled accounts or shared ownership of bullion bars.
Clients’ assets – whether they be cash or bullion – are never held on the balance sheet of Strategic Gold.
No. Strategic Gold is not a money transmitter and is not subject to regulation as a Money Services Business (“MSB”). Strategic Gold Corporation requires as part of its account application and opening documentation disclosure of the account holder’s bank account and bank representative. All money that is used to fund Clear Title Account bullion purchases must originate from this linked account. Likewise, any money disbursed from the Clear Title Account is sent back to that same bank account on record. Due to this “closed system” structure the firm is not considered a Money Transmitter.
In the unlikely event that Strategic Gold should cease to exist, your allocated gold and silver holdings remain your legal property. Ownership of your gold investments does not cease with company failure because client bullion assets never appear on our balance sheet.
If Strategic Gold is wholly or partially unable to perform any of its obligations hereunder as a result of force majeure, bankruptcy, unwinding, corporate dissolution, or otherwise, the Strategic Gold Operational Procedures for Circumstances In Extremis will be initiated. An independent Trustee has been established in order to fully protect the individual property rights of our clients and their holdings upon the occurrence of any such event. The Trustee maintains access to the firms mission critical systems and database. Our custodians (The Bank of Nova Scotia and Via Mat International) and trading partners have agreed to recognize the Trustee as the lawful administrator/agent of the Clear Title Program in Circumstances In Extremis for the benefit of each client.
We believe our business model makes us markedly different from most firms in our industry, where too often client funds are affected by business failure, unsound management and extreme market conditions. We believe our platform offers a way to invest in gold that is superior to traditional financial products and paper securities, where ownership is seldom certain and systemic risk is an unavoidable risk.
