Physical Cash - Best "investment" Rigth Now ?

Recommended Posts

I know its arguably a bit "tinfoil hat" to be paranoid about bank collapses but ...

With the current paltry rates for savers surely the best risk-adjusted return available right now is physical cash (and I mean bank notes in a safety deposit box - not e-cash in a bank account), well and perhaps some physical gold as a hedge. Not sure pure sterling is optimal either. Maybe an even split of physical £/CHF/gold ?. Regarding deposit guarantees by the gov - I think they will be unable to cover a major collapse and would default or at least force people to take a hefty hair cut.
