The relevance of gold as a strategic asset
“Gold is a highly liquid yet scarce asset, and it is no one’s liability. It is bought as a luxury good as much as an investment. As such, gold can play four fundamental roles in a portfolio:
–a source of long-term returns
–a diversifier that can mitigate losses in times of market stress
–a liquid asset with no credit risk that has outperformed fiat currencies
–a means to enhance overall portfolio performance.”
USAGOLD note: Why gold makes sense for private investors as a long-term, all-weather portfolio addition. . . . . . .
