FreedomFest 2016
Monday, 18 Jul 2016

This year New Zealand Vault attended the FreedomFest conference for the first time as an exhibitor. FreedomFest is an annual festival where free minds meet to celebrate “great books, great ideas, and great thinkers” in an open-minded society. It is independent, non-partisan, and not affiliated with any organisation or think tank. FreedomFest invites the “best and the brightest” from around the world to talk, strategize, socialise, and celebrate liberty. FreedomFest is open to all and is purely egalitarian, where speakers, attendees, and exhibitors are treated as equals.

This year’s event hosted at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas was a huge success, with over 2,000 attendees, 95 exhibitors, and 270 speakers including Senator Rand Paul, George Foreman, Senator Ben Sasse, Steve Forbes, Doug Casey, Stephen Moore, Peter Schiff and many more. There were presentations, debates, panel discussions, films and social gatherings over the 4 day event.

A wide range of topics were up for discussion, but one particular topic was discussed at length –both by speakers and in our conversations with attendees. There is a general consensus that the personal freedom and liberty of the average American is fast being eroded. Speakers and attendees pointed to increasingly wasteful government spending, growing numbers of laws that attacked individual’s freedom, and the ever growing unsustainable debt the USA now faces.

Many of the attendees are now establishing a “Plan B” in order to prepare and protect themselves from the imminent collapse of their economy. For a significant number of these people diversifying their investment strategies to protect their wealth and ensure their families’ futures is a crucial part of that plan. Purchasing physical gold and silver, and most importantly, storing it offshore in a private safety deposit box is an excellent way to meet this requirement.

Far from the world’s ‘hot spots’, New Zealand sports high levels of personal freedom and low levels of corruption, making the island nation a fantastic place to invest and do business. New Zealand is also the perfect place to store bullion. New Zealand Vault is a privately owned company with Treasury grade Vaults in both Auckland and Wellington, which operates independently of the financial system and government. While we highly recommend visiting our spectacular country we know it is not always feasible for investors to make the trip in order to arrange a safety deposit box with us. For this reason New Zealand Vault has specifically developed an innovative solution with our accounting partner Grant Thornton which allows clients outside of New Zealand to both open a safety deposit box and deposit bullion with us online.

We were delighted to find that many of the attendees we spoke to had either been to New Zealand or intended on coming here. Attendees were quick to praise and express their admiration for our island nation. New Zealand has a fantastic reputation as a place of exceptional beauty, and a stable and safe place to visit, live and invest.
