Gold investments 'valuable to portfolios'
A gold investment can make a significantly valuable contribution to investors' portfolios, it has been claimed.
While the yellow metal has seen average yearly gains of what may seem like a relatively small four per cent in the last century, gold bullion has much to offer savvy investors looking to diversify their holdings, Livemint says.
"For investment, gold must be considered a valuable tactical asset to add diversity across the risk spectrum," the news source remarks.
"It could turn out to be very useful to hedge risk due to its low correlation with other major asset classes."
Indeed, a growing number of investors are seeking gold's safe haven properties in a climate of economic uncertainty around the world.
According to a World Gold Council report released earlier this spring, gold proved to be particularly attractive to buyers in the light of the relative volatility of equities and other commodities following the first revelations regarding the credit crunch.
