With gold against penalty interest
Within a year, the number of banks charging penalty interest has increased approximately tenfold. For larger amounts on the overnight deposit account, 126 banks now collect this interest, compared to only 13 a year ago. Also, the sums for which the interest is collected are getting smaller and smaller. Thus, there is the penalty interest with three banks already starting from the first euro.
One way to avoid this is of course to change banks. Or one considers an investment in shares, for example gold shares. In Germany the shareholder ratio, i.e. what percentage of the population owns shares directly or indirectly, is relatively low. With the indirect share ownership equity funds or share ETFs are meant. In 2019, the shareholder ratio in Germany was approximately 12.5 percent. Other countries, such as Switzerland, the USA or Norway, for example, achieve 30 to 50 percent.
Nevertheless, many have already recognized it: Private pension provision and the creation of wealth can be achieved with shares. In the long term, there are returns that cannot be realized anywhere else. The German population should free itself from the share wallflower existence. Why the time deposit account is still more popular, even with these sad interest rates, is actually difficult to explain.
The times in which one could rely in Germany on the legal pension insurance and the possession of a home of one's own might be past. So, let's take a quick look at promising candidates like GoldMining or Osisko Gold Royalties.
GoldMining not only owns a large portfolio of projects (approximately 25 million ounces of gold resources), but also has a royalty company ("Royalty Corp.") in the form of a wholly owned subsidiary.
The diversification of a royalty company is also available at Osisko Gold Royalties. With more than 135 precious metal purchases and license agreements, the company has been operating successfully for many years.
