Precious Metals & Diversification

Effective Diversification: The Foundation of Portfolio Security

When two assets in the same portfolio are fundamentally uncorrelated with one another, that’s effective diversification. Uncorrelated assets tend NOT to move in the same direction at the same time, and that’s exactly what you want when you set out to diversify your portfolio.

Unfortunately, many retirement account owners believe they are effectively diversified, but they aren’t.

The only way to achieve true effective diversification – and real portfolio protection – is to own an asset outside the realm of mainstream financial markets.

The chart below reveals gold’s statistically low correlation with key asset classes and markets.
