Jonathan Cavuoto is the president and founder of First National Bullion (http://www.firstnationalbullion.com/), based in San Diego. FNB has been in business for more than two years, and provides services to investors to enable the physical ownership of precious metals. These services include the purchase, sale and safe-keeping of gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. Commission rates are modest and extremely competitive in relationship to alternatives. In addition, FNB’s storage fees for safe-keeping are reasonable (¾% on an annual basis). Indeed, clients’ requirements represent the First, at First National Bullion. Mr. Cavuoto began his career trading oil contracts and futures in 1999 as a licensed commodity trader. Several years later, he began trading currency futures, mostly other currencies against the US dollar. It was from the vantage point of a currency trader that he witnessed first hand the negative impact of a depreciating US dollar upon investment portfolios --- and saw the investment value in owning precious metals versus paper money. FNB was founded based upon that vision. Mr. Cavuoto has a Bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University and an MBA in Finance.
