About us

The company

In 2010 Christian Haese, Fabian Haunss and Daniel Haese discussed gold investments and ways for retail investors to invest in gold. They developed the idea to compare providers of vaulted gold, their preferred form of gold investment. Given that professionally stored physical gold and its providers in most countries like the United States and the United Kingdom are not heavily regulated and offer very different fee structures, the need for objective and transparent information and price comparisons seems obvious.

The company was founded as Trustable Services GmbH in 2011 and renamed to Taeon GmbH in 2017.

Under the brand Taeon Partners we offer consulting services to financial service providers such as banks and insurers as well as internet companies.

Our philosophy

With Trustable Gold we provide an independent and objective guide for investors looking for gold investments. Due to lax or nonexistent regulation, the market for physical gold investment often lacks transparency with respect to dubious providers. That can make gold investments risky or costly. We assess and compare providers of vaulted gold based on objective criteria and help investors choose the right provider.

We receive referral commissions from providers of vaulted gold if they acquire clients through our website. Our assessment criteria are fully transparent and our evaluation and cost comparisons are not dependent on any referral fees or other payments; we do not accept payments or other benefits as a compensation for our review. Clients will find objective reasoning behind every review. Clients do not pay any additional fees, when they become client of a provider through our website.
