Why include gold as part of your SMSF portfolio?
The price of gold has risen by an annual average of 9% since the 1970s. Holding gold as part of a diversified portfolio can offer benefits to investors, including self-managed super fund (SMSF) trustees.
Why include gold?
Five key reasons self-managed super funds buy gold include:
- Strong long-term returns
- A cash alternative in low real interest rate environments
- A trusted hedge against falling stock prices
- Currency diversification
- Simplicity and security.
