What our happy clients say
I am a former superannuation advisor and financial planner*, and I would like to share my Argyle experience. In early 2019 I started becoming concerned about my ability to negate some of the volatility that was occurring within the share market and directly effecting my self-managed super fund. I started to look to alternative investments in order to diversify my assets. After several months of research, I purchased some gold and my first Argyle diamond, in order to secure a small proportion of the fund in hard assets. I took a small profit on the gold and continued to explore investment quality Argyle diamonds. This was when I first contacted ADI. At this stage I knew my first purchase was a good one however, if I was going to be a serious investor in this area, I need an industry relationship, not just a retailer. I.e., There is no point holding assets that may appreciate in time in an unregulated market if you have no ability to track the market, or dispose of the asset at a time of your choosing. ADI provided this at every step. Since late 2019, I have purchased 4 more Argyle diamonds at wholesale prices, including a match found for the one I already held to make up a pair. This makes up a significant proportion of my SMSF. With the mine now closed and supply gone I indicated to ADI that I was happy to sell one of my Argyles at the right price if they had a buyer. A fortnight ago ADI contacted me to see if I was still prepared to part with one of my holdings as they had had a request. ADI managed the sale and after they received my secured delivery, the money went into my SMSF the next day. Seamless. I made a significant profit, especially as I had only held the diamond for just over 18 months. I still hold my matching pair and my two larger diamonds including a blue, and will continue to do so. However, it is so good to know that when I do want to realise my capital gain, I have such a great team to help me do so.
