It is not possible for ABC Bullion to tell you how much you should invest in gold or silver as we do not know your specific financial situation and objectives.
Due to their low correlation to most mainstream assets, many of our clients use gold and silver to diversify their investments. Others use them as a store of wealth or for protection against inflation.
Research by the World Gold Council in various countries shows that adding between 2% and 10% in gold to a portfolio over the past decade would have resulted in higher risk-adjusted returns.
We recommend that you obtain professional financial advice about the percentage allocation that is appropriate to your personal circumstances before making any decision.
We suggest using the World Gold Council research as well as year-by-year historical returns for gold, silver and platinum in Australian dollars, available from our Market Statistics page, as a starting point for discussions with your financial advisor.
