Choosing your Gold & Silver
Choose the right precious metal for your needs
Diversifying your precious metals portfolio with different types of precious metals is always a sound strategy—but you may be wondering how much of your portfolio should be in gold versus how much should be in silver, or platinum, or even palladium.
How much of your portfolio to allocate between the different metals can be determined according to where we are in the precious metal investment cycle and whether you prefer a monetary-type metal like gold to an industrial type metal like silver, platinum, or palladium. Sometimes, silver seems to be poised for more growth, and sometimes that may be the case for gold.
Ask your Gold Alliance Account Executive where we are in the investment cycle so that you can focus your portfolio on the metal with the best growth potential. Whether that means investing in gold, silver, or something like palladium, we’ll help you find the right precious metals for your portfolio.
Determine the desired benefits to your precious metals portfolio
Different precious metals products provide different benefits to the investor, like upside growth, downside risk protection, and privacy. Read on to learn more about each of these benefits, and let your Gold Alliance expert know which benefits you’re most interested in and they will recommend which products to choose.
Upside growth: Not all precious metals perform the same way when their base spot price increases or decreases. Some have a history of rising faster and stronger than others.
Downside risk protection: Some precious metals products have a history of price stability even when the spot price drops.
Privacy: One of the most attractive aspects of investing in precious metals is that physical precious metals can be privately accumulated. Many products are exempt from the extensive disclosure to the government that other assets require, giving these precious metals products an unequaled level of privacy. Please tell your Gold Alliance Account Executive if privacy is an important feature for you, and we will recommend the products that meet your needs.
