As far back as the beginning of civilization, physical silver has constituted a unique medium of exchange as well as a store of value. With the introduction of fiat currencies by various sovereign governments – the US dollar, the euro, and so forth, silver is now viewed moreas an instrument of investment that offers a certain guarantee against the erratic nature of the modern economy. Silver also serves as a hedge against inflation and other consequences of economic recession.

Investors that have placed their money on silver, especially over the past decade, have enjoyed a gross return of over 648%; a figure that is far much higher than that obtainable with other similar investment vehicles like Dow Jones and S&P 500 which have returned nothing more than 33% each.

Secondly, what makes any investment tick is of course an effective demand for the product concerned. Silver has been reported to be the first element on the periodic tablethat would go into extinction. With this, and other market variables, the demand for silver has continued to soar high more than ever before. More so, silver is one of the best conductors of electricity on the planet, and it is basically used for all electronics ranging from mobile phones and laptops, to even medical devices, automobiles, and any other product that requireselectricity conduction to function.

With this, as well as increasing levels of technological advancement the world over, the future of silver looks even brighter than ever, at least for the next decade.

The traditional use of precious commodities as a store of value has continued especially in today’s economic condition. Investors worldwide have readily made use of silver as currency in the face of prolonged global economic crises. This scenario has contributed to increases in the price of silver in recent years.

Furthermore, billionaires all over the world are rapidly shifting their asset holdings from dollar and euro bases to more secured silver assets;this has also contributed towards making silver one of the most traded assets in the world. Moreover, the central banks of large emerging economies such as Russia, India, and China, have all accelerated their demand for physical silver, a rate that is presently nearing over 400%.

There has hardly been any commodity or asset that has been able to perform exceptionally in the history of the market. The supply and demand dynamics of silver, as well as the investment and security appetite of the billionaire investors have made the bullish run of the commodity almost endless.

If central banks and successful ultra-rich investors are placing their money on physical silver, then what are they doing right that some of us don’t care to understand. Silver is simply a commodity that is worth placing money on, either for now or for the future.
