The dramatic continuing decline in interest rates and the advent of negative nominal rates across much of the bond space has made gold more competitive. Major financial institutions, like Bridgewater, have focused extensively on how gold works within a diversified portfolio. Gold is no longer viewed simply as an Armageddon asset class, but rather as one that can provide significant diversification benefits.”
