Gold

Today’s Essential Strategic Investment



There once was a time when gold was considered a relatively esoteric holding— the classic hedge against inflation and economic uncertainty that involved purchasing and securely storing bullion, buying into mines or engaging in futures trading. These days gold investment is much simpler and certainly more ubiquitous. This precious metal has retained all of its rock-solid qualities for safety and value, but now a large range of investors are easily incorporating it in their portfolios through exchange traded funds (ETFs) that combine ownership with convenience and flexibility.
