World Gold Council, published the report, the relevance of gold as a strategic asset 2023! The report addresses those factors makes gold a strategic asset.
Gold has a key role as a strategic long term investment and as a mainstay allocation in a well-diversified portfolio. Investors have been able to recognise much of gold’s value over time by maintaining a long-term allocation and taking advantage of its safe-haven status during periods of economic uncertainty.
Gold is a highly liquid asset, which is no one’s liability, carries no credit risk, and is scarce, historically preserving its value over time. It also benefits from diverse sources of demand: as an investment, a reserve asset, jewellery, and a technology component.
These attributes mean gold can enhance a portfolio in three key ways, 1: Delivering long-term returns, 2: Improving diversification & 3: Providing liquidity. Combined, these characteristics make gold a clear complement to stocks and bonds and a welcome addition to broad based portfolios.
Moreover, the shift towards a greater integration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives within investment strategies has important implications and we believe gold can play a role in supporting these. Gold should be recognised as an asset that is responsibly sourced and delivered from a supply chain that adheres to high ESG standards.
Gold also has a potential role to play in reducing investor exposure to climate-related risks.
