Across centuries gold's attraction as an investment has remained as constant as the yellow metal’s properties. 

Gold’s diversification benefits and ability to reduce risk at the portfolio level have continued to fuel demand from astute investors worldwide. 

Over the long term the precious metal has offered several key benefits to investors:  

  • Strong long-term returns: The gold price has delivered long-term returns of almost 9% per annum since the early 1970s.

  • Strong outperformance in low real interest rate environments: Gold prices have risen in 18 of the 21 years when real Australian cash rates have been 2% or lower, as they are today. The average gain during those years has been more than 20%.

  • Demonstrated hedge against equity market falls: Gold has historically been the highest performing single asset class in environments where equity markets suffer their biggest corrections. 

  • Currency diversification: Gold offers a de facto foreign currency exposure in an Australian investor’s portfolio and it has historically benefited from any decline in the value of the AUD.

  • Liquidity and simplicity: Gold is highly liquid and simple to incorporate into a portfolio. It is accessible to all investors and can be purchased in amounts as little as AUD 50.  

24hGold -  Why gold

While other asset classes offer some of these benefits, gold is arguably the only asset that offers all of the above attributes in one easily accessible investment.

Given the economic and financial market environment investors face today, we expect that gold will continue to attract attention from investors around the globe.
