Gold for the Long Run: A Strategic Investment


March 8, 2022


Gold is one of the oldest financial instruments, dating back thousands of years — and its prospects as a strategic investment remain strong. Gold offers several unique investment characteristics that may help its role in portfolios gain greater prominence in the years ahead. These are centered around gold’s potential portfolio utility in wealth preservation, risk management, and capital appreciation. Moreover, several themes likely to play out over the next decade should support gold demand including low real yields, rising debt, and rising global wealth.

Although most coverage of gold as an investment focuses on relatively short time periods, investors stand to benefit if they consider gold in the context of its storied history, the secular trends currently supporting its outlook, and the portfolio benefits it may offer over long time horizons.
