Welcome to illuminati silver we tell you the
truth about silver. Today is Monday 14th December 2015 and I am
briefly interviewing one of our fellow Illuminati Silver Brethren – Brother Anthony.
Welcome to our channel – and this is the first time that listeners will have heard
your voice. You are one of the High Priests of illuminati Silver and I wonder if you would
tell us a little about yourself. Certainly, well having left university with
a degree in Economics and Politics I worked in the City, firstly for an Insurance House
and then for a one of the Big Four UK Retail Banks in their Commercial Division.
I left the Banking Industry and returned home where I set up my own Mortgage Broking Company
We specialised in niche development finance solutions. Then after the 2008 crash I extended
my operations to include Property Management and International Commercial Investment both
in the UK and in Turkey. Now that’s interesting, I’m sure that
our listeners are no doubt wondering why would someone like you – involved in International
finance even be interested in supporting a small channel such as this – focussed on
the precious metals market? Like the rest of our team, my mantra has always
been to spread investment risk in a number of sectors. Personally I have a keen interest
in old UK sovereigns and collect them both as a hobby and for their numismatic qualities.
Silver, well, I have previously been more cautious of and while you believe $12 is the
floor possibly spiking down to $10 it is at that latter level I shall be gearing my funds
towards. I am aware there is a lot of hype surrounding precious metals on the internet
and I share the view that if we can perhaps put some light and perspective into the debate
then why not? Ah so you may be a silver bug then really?
If you consider short term caution against long term bullishness, I guess I am.
Now I won’t embarrass you by asking how many gold sovereigns you have, but has the
price decline since 2011 adversely affected the value of your gold portfolio?
It has slightly, but nowhere near as much as if I had invested in bullion. However one
has to bear in mind, that the majority of my purchases were made before 2011 and like
yourself, I have restricted buying since concentrating on unique and interesting collectibles. One
thing I would recommend to our listeners is to shop around and do your own due diligence.
In the right place at the right time, you can, by obtaining the right coin, gain an
average 20% investment protection compared to the underlying metal price. However one
has very cautious out there as there are many, many fakes.
Now being involved in Financial Projects abroad obviously you have to consider currency valuations
and in today’s world devaluations. We hear frequently on You Tube many claiming the imminent
collapse of the dollar. What is your view on this rather contentious subject?
Frankly I would be very surprised if the dollar was the first currency to collapse. One has
to bear in mind, that regardless of what one suspects about what China and Russia plan
to do by selling their dollar denominated assets, the reality is, the rest of the world
actually holds the dollar in quite high esteem. You try dealing with a Turkish top 100 company
they don’t want to deal with you in Turkish Lira, they’d look at you as if you have
2 heads. Its dollars dollars dollars in Istanbul. Well I’m pleased you mentioned Turkey because
that leads us nicely to my next question. You are obviously aware of Donald Trumps’
recent comments about banning Muslims to the US (albeit temporarily) and the high level
of support he has apparently received, which suggests an anti-muslim sentiment developing
in the West. What do you have to say about this?
OK, well as you know that Turkey is approximately 96% Muslim and less than 1% Christian. However,
it does see itself as a ‘western thinking’ country highlighted by Istanbul being split
into 2 distinct regions: One being Asian and the other European; both of these are serviced
by their own airports. What Donald Trump forgets and let’s also not get into the conspiracy
world here, but I can assure you that the relationship between Turkey and the US is
far closer than many envisage and I would not be surprised if this also applies to other
‘Muslim dominated’ Countries. Funnily enough one of our You Tube subscribers
recently mentioned Thorium. It is alleged that there is a long standing agreement that
Turkey will not realise its vast thorium reserves which are interestingly located in the area
close to the Iraq border until the US is happy for it to do so.
Why is that? Well let’s just say that thorium is a far
cheaper and more efficient energy provider than oil. I don’t wish to say anymore at
this stage except that it is already publicly acknowledged that Turkey has the third largest
deposits of Thorium recorded, just behind the US and Australia.
Thank you for that most interesting insight. Coming back to the focus of our channel is
there anything you wish to add about the precious metal space?
Well personally, my approach is quite simple. For every day needs I use cash. For tomorrows
needs I hold liquid assets such as bonds, stocks and UK gilts. Longer term I hold property,
funds and Gold, with silver being my punt on there being shortages in about 15 years’
time so I do take a long term view on silver. Brother Anthony thank you for your time and
insights. You are more than welcome.
So there we have it. You have now been introduced to one of our fraternity and we plan to interview
others who have an input into our videos during the coming weeks so that you at least can
glean some idea about our thoughts, backgrounds and inspiration.
