092: Why Gold In An International Portfolio Is More Important Than Ever Before – Rich Checkan

Rich Checkan interview on The Expat Money Show by Mikkel Thorup

Rich Checkan from ASI is our guest today on The Expat Money Show, and I’m really excited for our listeners to get to know him and understand why buying gold is so important. He is a very good friend of mine and I promise, you are in for a real treat.

Rich Checkan is the President of ASI – Asset Strategies International and I’ve had the privilege of working alongside him for several paid webinar presentations and he was a speaker AND a sponsor at our recent Offshore Summit. Through all of this, our audience loved his wealth of knowledge and got great value from listening to him.

Rich is one of the most informed people in the world in the precious metals industry and I often consult with him on what is happening in this space.

In today’s episode, Rich Checkan and Mikkel Thorup talk in great detail about Gold. When it all began, what happens during a recession, how often in its history has this happened and how did people respond.

They discuss all of the reasons why it’s important to have gold in your portfolio and when the best, AND worst time to buy and to sell.


Important Topics Discussed

  • Price war with China
  • Election Year
  • Insurance, using Gold
  • Did Gold ‘Do its job’?
  • Fabrication of the metal
  • How DO you buy gold?

As if these topics aren’t enough to fill a fast-paced hour, Mikkel and Rich wrap it up with:

  • Silver being for the growth
  • Platinum, palladium and other precious metals
  • Inflation/Deflation and Stagflation

Quote of the day: “Holding onto a bad investment doesn’t make it a good investment”

Final Thoughts

Wow is all I can say. This is a really great episode with my friend Rich Checkan. If you don’t know a ton about gold, where to buy and when to buy, this is a must-listen-to episode. We talk a lot about gold here on The Expat Money Show and I’m sure we will continue as this is such an important topic, especially with the uncertainty of Covid-19 and the FED debasing currencies around the world at such an alarming rate.
