As one of the top precious metals trading platforms in the country, the Certified Gold Exchange has much to offer those looking to become involved with precious metals. This includes licensed dealers, institutions, and other investors. There are more than two decades of history behind our business and with that in mind; here is what you should know about the history of the Certified Gold Exchange.
Beginnings of the Certified Gold Exchange
The economic situation back in 1992 was a bit difficult. There was a recession which the country was struggling to come out from under and things on Wall Street were not looking too positive, either. This made it a great time to buy gold. It was under these conditions that the Certified Gold Exchange opened its doors.
Initially, the company focused on only one area of business: being a precious metals dealer to other businesses. This primarily involved working with other dealers and institutions. This also happened to be a great way to learn all the ins and outs of the precious metals business. This experience has been invaluable in terms of building our own relationships with trusted institutions and precious metals storage facilities along with knowing the best ways to find the types of metals consumers really want.
Household Division Opened
After nearly nine years of operating strictly as a broker dealer for other brokers and institutions, our founder had the insight of bringing our experience directly to the consumer. In 2001, the Certified Gold Exchange household division was born. People were starting to hear more and more about investing in gold, silver, and other precious metals but really lacked the actual advice and guidance needed in order to make the best purchase and investment decisions.
On top of this, our founder and current CEO could see many folks were being taken advantage of by charlatans and others who tried flocking to this industry in the hope of making a quick fortune. Sadly, there were many questionable sales tactics being used during this period which gave the industry a bad name.
You may remember this period being marked by a number of celebrity TV ads trying to peddle the wares of many newly formed gold and silver dealers. Never mind the fact that most of these celebrities never investigated any of the companies they represented, nor did they probably care as long as they were paid.
