Performance metrics

Gold has long been considered a beneficial asset during periods of uncertainty. Historically, it generated long-term positive returns in both good times and bad. This duality reflects the diverse sources of demand for gold and differentiates it from other investment assets. And gold's benefits to investors are best understood in context with other assets and from a global perspective. As such, we publish performance metrics (returns) for gold and relevant asset classes in multiple currencies. This dynamic tool allows investors to analyse gold returns historically and compare it to that of major assets across various markets.
