Gold: A Strategic Asset Allocation
Long term investment yield improves
with a permanent allocation to Gold
In Q2 of 2014, the World Gold again commissioned Boston firm ‘New Frontier Advisory'(NFA) to perform an independent analysis on the role of Gold in a broad premium asset spectrum for investors with a major base currency (USD, GBP, EUR, CHF, YEN, CAD, AUD). The report was published by WGC in July 2014 and covers the period since 1971, the year the gold standard had to be abandoned. It is a known fact that qualified diversification reduces risk. The main conclusion is that Gold does mitigate risk on a historic and on a statistical basis using over 40 years of market data. In the risk/return optimized portfolio Gold participates between 4 and 10%. Also check the World Gold Council link below.
