Time To Replace Bonds With Gold

Source: World Gold Council

 “It may be time to replace bonds with gold”according to the just released excellent new Investment Update by the World Gold Council.

◆ Central banks have shifted to a new regime of easy monetary policy, thus reducing expected bond returns.

◆ As negative yielding debt increases alongside stock-to-yield valuations to all-time highs, gold may become an attractive and more effective diversifier than bonds, justifying a higher portfolio allocation than historical performance suggests.

◆ Re-optimising portfolio structures for lower future expected bond returns suggests investors should consider an additional 1%-1.5% gold exposure in diversified portfolios.
