LONDON, 20 July 2010 ? BullionVault.com ? the secure, low-cost gold ownership service ? is featured today in a special report on gold investment by leading US finance site, TheStreet.com.
"Asset managers recommend that 3% to 10% of an investor's portfolio be in gold depending on age, risk tolerance and world view," writes Alix Steel, who also reports on "life-stage gold investment" for public service PBS television today.
But "regardless of age, analysts agree that everyone must own some kind of gold throughout every stage of their lives. It's just a question of how to invest."
Comparing higher-risk mining stocks with ETFs and pool program, TheStreet cites BullionVault.com as a way of owning physical bullion "to take on less risk and buy gold in case of emergencies."
Ms.Steel also quotes BullionVault head of research Adrian Ash on what to look out for when judging risk in "gold investing" offers, and concludes that "If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is."
