Any investment comes with risk — so we don’t keep all our eggs in one basket.
We invest in lots of different assets. Should an unexpected event threaten the value of one investment, the others help balance out its performance. This is what investors call ‘diversification’.
One asset can be uniquely useful for diversifying a portfolio: gold.
Gold has outperformed most major asset classes over the past 20 years; it has also historically performed well in periods of financial turmoil. Gold could provide you with returns plus an effective way to hedge risks.
