Our business model is simple, our knowledge is invaluable.
We thrive on data and knowing that numbers don’t lie when it comes to growing wealth. With so much data available there has never been a better time to buy physical gold. Our focus is to educate our clients to the real value of gold and provide solutions to make the most of their hard earned money.
- Learn why gold is the world's most valued asset.
- Compare historical data to make informed decisions.
- Access the best investment models for purchasing gold in a market that is set to continue to grow over the next decade.
We believe that knowledge is power and without it people will continue to see their future wealth diluted. With real time knowledge there is no excuse to miss out on the opportunity that gold offers to not only survive the next decade but to thrive and grow.
Driven by data, passionate about returns
Approximately 2,500 - 3,000 tons of new gold is mined each year. With an estimated trading value of $22 trillion per year, the international gold market dwarfs turnover on the Dow Jones Index and the S&P 500 combined, German and even UK government bonds.
With gold reaching record highs in 2020 and the world debt likely to explode, creating global issues for many fiat currencies in the decade to come, there is so much hype about purchasing gold. But where do you start?
At RTK our purpose is to protect wealth. We use real time data to help you make informed decisions. Will gold continue on a bull run through the 2020’s? Is gold undervalued and if so why? Should you buy gold or invest in gold stocks? All these are tough questions when your wealth is at stake. Don’t worry, that’s why we exist.
Gold is historic, gold is our future
When you understand the facts around gold, why it is so important and why we need it you can better understand why you need to own it. Printing endless pots of money cannot continue in the way it has been doing for decades. Changing times are upon us.
Using historical and current data we educate our clients so in turn they can make informed decisions. We provide assessments of gold’s performance against other asset classes whilst providing a solution to purchase gold in the most sustainable way.
We have the t-shirts you don’t want to collect
How many times do you hear ‘we’ve been there and done that’? Well we have. From the early days of travelling the ends of Africa looking for gold we have done almost everything. With greed in our eyes and looking for the next get rich quick scheme we have lost money in the scams that so many people do. But we are not fools. We have learned, we have spent years educating ourselves and it is with this knowledge that we ensure that our clients don’t make the same mistakes that we have.
Along our journey through Africa and the learnings we have been afforded we have met many interesting people. No more so interesting than our partners Phoenix Precious Metals. With a social agenda that caters for their own people and land, we have worked to create a new way of buying gold in a sustainable win-win way for all. Learn more about PPM here.
From the safety of Switzerland to a global network
We started out in the heart of the safest financial capital of the world. Switzerland. Why? It is reported that a third of the world's wealth is stored there so we thought what better place to be. Since the inception of RTK Trading SA in 2013 we have gone on to create businesses with offices in Guinea, Dubai, Hong Kong and the United Kingdom.
With 7 years of loving gold now under our belt we are proud of the network we have built and a product offering that has long been sought for our clients.
A new horizon is upon us
There's no such thing as economic stability, whatever politicians and economists tell you. Few people realise - or care to acknowledge - that we are poised on the brink of yet another financial crisis, which could be worse than any we’ve seen to date. Global debt is out of control, and the authorities have used up all their ammunition solving the last financial crisis.
Taking centre stage in the impending catastrophe is the dollar, the focal point of the global monetary system; but the so-called ‘Mighty Greenback’ is not anywhere near as mighty as it once was.

Phoenix Precious Metals
Setting a gold standard
Phoenix Precious Metals (PPM) and their larger sibling MSS are part of the Phoenix Group of companies. They offer a number of services on an international scale, including Security, Aviation, Foreign Exchange, Trading, Logistics and Consulting.
- PPM was formed in 2015 by industry veteran Yacoub Sidya
- PPM is part of the larger MSS group, formed in 2005 in Dubai, UAE
PPM takes its core values very seriously. The focus is on corporate responsibility, community well-being and enforcing a responsible supply chain across every facet of operations. There has been a commitment to steady growth since day one, and the results speak for themselves.
Partnering with success
As a key partner of PPM's we are both experienced experts in our respective fields. To align with PPM's core principles, the key attributes in every partnership are trust, credibility and transparency through references. PPM strongly subscribes to policies of fair trade and responsible sourcing.
When PPM was founded in 2015, their main business focus was on trading precious metals and stones. In 2016, they broke new ground in pursuing their own gold exploration, and in 2018, gold extraction and production began.
Growth through innovation
PPM invested heavily in its work, pouring both time and capital into the ventures, and it wasn't long before a greater vision formed: with RTK an opportunity to integrate the supply chain, streamline operational costs and make processes more efficient for the end-user buyer.
PPM’s Audited Accounts show 350,000 oz of gold traded and, with regards to extraction, 38,000 oz of proven reserves are listed in their mining contracts and permits.
PPM has grown into a major stakeholder in the West African gold market as new mining permits continue to be acquired. They now operate from 8 offices across the African continent and UAE from which they serve their esteemed clientele.
The people in the regions where PPM operates are truly the cornerstone of their success. PPM forms connections with local communities for reciprocal partnerships and long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.
PPM provides material investments for construction and on-going support of schools and hospitals; they work to assemble and repair infrastructure and provide improvements to water systems. PPM fosters a culture of respect for people, and that respect is returned, particularly with the creation of new employment opportunities that help people transform their lives.
Power of the people
PPM goes above and beyond to be regarded as an employer of choice. Theirs has become a coveted workplace, attracting and retaining employees by providing:
- Honourable and safe working conditions
- A competitive rewards system
- Opportunities to learn new skills and grow as a professional
The overarching principle is to be reciprocal with team members: hard work, honesty, dedication, and ambition are tenants that never go unnoticed, or unrewarded, in their employees.
No stone left unturned
The origin of the PPM business model emerged from keen observation with RTK; they identified gaps in the industry’s social responsibility. They are committed to ensuring all activities are zero-harm to all parties involved, especially local communities, employees and the environment.
The goal is to contribute to the development of local communities, deliver long-term value to employees, and invest in environmental protection. The livelihood of communities and economies is paramount. This means focusing on long-term, continual success by adhering to strict fair trade practices.
PPM's in-house purchase and export departments ensure law-abiding processes and protocols are present in all physical gold transactions. PPM holds internal KYC and AML policies to govern how staff operate and is fully compliant with all legislation.
