Why You Need Gold in Your Portfolio
People have been investing in gold for thousands of years, but more recently gold has become a favoured investment for many of the world’s central banks and institutional investors who control large amounts of the world’s capital.
Gold is an asset class that typically performs in the opposite direction of other investments such as the equities market and the US dollar. Because of this negative correlation, investors often use gold as a way to diversify risk within their portfolio. This investment strategy can be particularly effective during market crashes or in times of market volatility.Download
