For the most part, “bullion sales” are a commodity business; in that the product is ubiquitous, and pricing tightly contested.  However, that’s where the similarity ends, between Miles Franklin and its competitors.

Remember, this is an UNREGULATED business.  Thus, you “get what you pay for” when dealing with unknown – or disreputable – entities.  Miles Franklin has not had any customer complaints to the Better Business Bureau in 22 years of business; and has NEVER lost a payment or package.  Our A+ Better Business Bureau rating attests to our integrity, which we passionately PROTECT with a commitment to outstanding customer service.

Recently, we have taken our “societal role” a step further, branding our “product” as “MILES FRANKLIN, PROTECTION PROVIDER.”  We sell bullion, storage services, and offer a way to purchase Swiss Annuities through BFI Consulting– with additional “protection provision” products to be announced shortly – but use education to empower clients, citing the great Cy Syms, of retail fame…

An educated consumer is our best customer.

Two decades ago, David Schectman invented the concept of highlighting education in the opaque, propagandized bullion industry; and ensured Miles Franklin will stay at the forefront of this movement when he hired me a year ago.  Moreover, his son Andy – co-founder and President of the firm – is one of the best public communicators in the industry.  Thus, there is no concept we cannot explain, or question we cannot answer – about Precious Metals, and offshore storage.

Four months ago, we took our education platform to the next level by hiring Bill Holter as Associate Writer, to post approximately six EXCLUSIVE articles each month.  Like myself, Bill came to David’s attention via the GATA website; as Bill and I were the two most consistent, well-read contributors since the early 2000s.

Bill is one of the smartest analysts I have come across in my “TEN YEARS OF HEAVEN AND HELL”; like myself, with a multi-decade Wall Street career preceding entry to the PM “shadow world.”  Better yet, his ability to compress a complex thought into a few, concise paragraphs is a unique skill rarely seen in financial commentary – of ANY sector…


Since joining Miles Franklin on a “consulting” basis, his following has multiplied – solidifying our reputation as the premier outlet for FREE Precious Metals education.  Thus, I am happy to announce we have asked him to join the firm as a FULL-TIME writer.  Thus, from now on, ALL content emanating from Bill Holter’s pen will be published by Miles Franklin.

For those who only read my RANTs, I encourage you to check out David Schectman’s daily blog – published each morning, Monday through Friday – as well as Bill Holter’s commentaries; all of which are archived on the website.  Combined, you will not learn more about the factors relevant to Precious Metals ownership, ANYWHERE.
