The Relevance of Gold as a Strategic Asset
Posted on 11/18/2020
What makes gold a strategic asset?
Gold benefits from diverse sources of demand: as an investment, a reserve asset, a luxury good and a technology component. It is highly liquid, no one’s liability, carries no credit risk, and is scarce, historically preserving its value over time.
Gold can enhance a portfolio in four key ways:
• generate long-term returns
• act as a diversifier and mitigate losses in times of market stress
• provide liquidity with no credit risk
• improve overall portfolio performance.
