In uncertain times, investors often turn to gold for its perceived ability to offer safety and diversification, making it a popular asset in well-rounded portfolios. Here, PensionCraft‘s Ramin Nakisa explores gold as an investment and explains how you could benefit from including it in your portfolio.
Why gold? The golden shield in financial storms
The allure of gold as as investment is its reputation as the ultimate safe haven. When financial crises rock the markets, gold has typically remained resilient, or even surged. By holding gold, you strategically diversify your portfolio, mitigate risks and target stability even as other investments might falter.
The power of physical gold funds
Uncover the world of physical gold funds, seamlessly channeling capital into gold and securely stored in reputable depositories.

Currency hedged funds

Gold miners vs physical gold
