Adding precious metals to your portfolio is an essential element in any plan to diversify your assets. Precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, and palladium can provide a hedge against inflation and when economies fluctuate, can help lower overall risk. These assets act as wealth insurance that have profit potential as well.
This foundation of your portfolio should be tested for balance under this rule:
- Does it hedge the dollar?
- Does it help you spread your wealth out geographically?
- Does it further diversify your underlying investments?
A core holding of precious metals can provide all three legs of a stable, prudent portfolio in the purest, most measurable way.
Simply put – Do not hold all your assets in any one:
- Asset class
Experts suggest that the bulk of your portfolio should be in traditional assets like stocks, bonds and real estate, but a portion of your portfolio should also be in alternative assets with proven track records like physical gold and silver bullion; bars or coins. These will allow you to better weather an uncertain economic future. Precious metals act not only as wealth insurance, but also have the profit potential you are looking for, especially at the start of a bull market. No matter what level of risk you wish to take, we suggest every portfolio diversify with 10-15% in precious metals.
