Why Gold is Shining Bright This Quarter
Gold has shined in today’s volatile market as global monetary policies shifted and economic risks heightened. But, are there other factors besides the perception that gold is a safe haven asset which may be raising gold’s performance? In this upcoming webcast, State Street Global Advisors, the World Gold Council and ETF Trends will help financial advisors better understand the drivers behind gold's recent performance and some of the potential, growing benefits of incorporating gold in an investor’s portfolio mix of traditional stocks and bonds.
Tom Lydon, CEO of ETF Trends, will moderate a discussion on:
- Drivers that have contributed gold's recent performance along with a review of factors that could potentially continue to push gold’s price rise going forward
- How the strategic relevance of gold in a portfolio may be on the rise and how gold may offer some unique virtues relative to some other commodity exposures
- The various ways financial advisors can consider incorporating gold as an investment asset to help diversify traditional portfolios and potentially enhance risk adjusted returns
