Egon von Greyerz

Egon von Greyerz is the Founder and Managing Partner of Matterhorn Asset Management AG (MAM)  and GoldSwitzerland based in Zurich, Switzerland. MAM specialises in wealth preservation for high net worth individuals as well as institutions.

GoldSwitzerland is the precious metals division of MAM. GoldSwitzerland buys, sells, transfers and stores precious metals for investors. The metals are stored in the name of the clients in ultra-secure vaults in Switzerland. MAM also assists clients in transferring existing gold and silver holdings out of the banking system to the private vaults. Clients have full control of their gold and silver bars which are allocated and segregated. Clients have personal access to the vaults to inspect or collect their metals.

EvG forecasted the current present problems in the world economy over 10 years ago. In 2002 when gold was $300 per ounce,  MAM recommended to its investors to put 50% of their investment assets into physical gold stored outside the banking system.

Egon von Greyerz started his working life in Geneva as a banker and thereafter spent 17 years as Finance Director and Executive Vice-Chairman of  a FTSE 100 company in the UK.

Since the 1990s EvG  has been actively involved with financial investment activities including Mergers and Acquisitions and Asset allocation consultancy for private family funds. This led to the creation of Matterhorn Asset Management an asset management company based on wealth preservation principles. The GoldSwitzerland Division  was created to facilitate the buying and storage of physical gold and silver for private investors, companies, trusts and pension funds.

MAM is associated with  the Aquila Group, Switzerland's largest independent asset management group. EvG makes regular media appearances such as on KWN, CNBC and BBC and speaks at investment conferences around the world. He also publishes articles on precious metals,  the world economy and wealth preservation.


Egon von Greyerz - Explosion & Implosion
Die Ausweitung der Geldmenge durch die großen Zentralbanken beschleunigt sich und die Defizite explodieren. In diesem Umfeld könnten die Aktien sogar noch weiter steigen. Real müssen die Aktien Verluste von 90% oder mehr hinnehmen. Auch die Immobilienblase wird durch die Krise platzen und enorme reale Verluste verursachen. Diese Umwälzungen bergen sozialen Sprengstoff und das Versagen des Finanzsystems wird unvermeidlich sein. Edelmetalle sichern Vermögenswerte. Obwohl Silber volatiler ist als Gold, scheint es stark unterbewertet zu sein. Es werden harte Zeiten, in denen Sie sich auf die schönen Dinge im Leben konzentrieren sollten, nicht nur die Finanzen.
Egon von Greyerz - Explosion & Implosion
The expansion of the money supply by the major central banks is accelerating and deficits are exploding. Equities may even rise further in this environment. In real terms, shares are facing losses of 90% or more. The real estate bubble will also burst through the crisis and cause huge real losses. These upheavals hold social explosives and the failure of the financial system will be unavoidable. Precious metals secure assets. Although silver is more volatile than gold, it appears to be strongly undervalued.
