LONDON, 20 July 2008 - British investors are swapping real estate, stocks and other conventional assets for "old-fashioned gold bullion and coins" reports the Independent on Sunday.
It points to the doubling of gold held by UK investors at BullionVault - the "leading gold bullion supplier" - since this time last year.
"I put a significant percentage of my investments in gold bullion about two years ago," David Walker, an account manager for a media company and a BullionVault client, told the newspaper.
"Some people thought it was an odd thing to invest in...but having [money] in gold makes you sleep a lot better at night."
