In a post-Brexit world, many have included a gold hedge to diminish further swings from more volatile equity exposure. On the other hand, investors can turn to a single exchange traded fund strategy that implements full exposure to gold and equities simultaneously.
On an upcoming webcast, Revealed: A Full Gold and Equities Exposure Strategy, Guy Adami, Director at Private Advisor Group, Will McGough, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager at Stadion Money Management, and Greg King, Founder and CEO of REX Shares, will go over an innovative institutional strategy that pairs core investments with a gold hedge through an easy-to-use ETF wrapper.
Specifically, the actively managed REX Gold Hedged S&P 500 ETF (NYSEArca: GHS) and the REX Gold Hedged FTSE Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: GHE) allow investors to access exposure to gold without diminishing their equity allocations, essentially providing investors a two-in-one, gold-and-stock position in an ETF wrapper.

The gold hedging strategy helps investors diversify an investment portfolio. The hard asset helps hedge currency risk in case of a depreciating U.S. dollar, diversifies a portfolio against unpredictable markets and shields a portfolio from potential financial tail events in more riskier developing economies.
However, retail investors who want to implement a gold hedge would typically have to allocate a portion of their wealth to physical gold bullion.
