Hedge or Diversifier? The Modern Take on Gold
A theory has been that an allocation to gold may help mitigate volatility in times of crisis. In the first half of the year, Gold has helped hedge against the uncertainty during the pandemic and growing concerns about inflation . In this insightful 1 hour webcast, State Street Global Advisors, the World Gold Council and ETF Trends will review the underlying fundamentals of Gold in 2020, and whether they may continue to support counter-correlated movements in the yellow metal.
Tom Lydon, CEO of ETF Trends, will moderate a discussion on:
- Provide a macro view of the markets in the first half of the year, including a review of the key variables that have influenced gold’s performance so far in 2020
- A deeper look at how some of these factors may affect gold going forward
- What the “next normal” might look like and what that could mean for gold
- Considerations for financial advisors using gold in client portfolios
