Gold Investor: risk management and capital preservation - Volume 3

This third edition of Gold Investor includes three papers: I. Gold and US interest rates: a reality check; II. What drives gold? Factors that influence the asset class and its role in a portfolio; III. The role of gold in defined-contribution plans: Mexico case study.

A good understanding of the factors influencing the performance of gold is a key challenge in grasping the core benefits of this asset class: a global inflation hedge, a risk-management vehicle and a source of capital preservation.

After an eventful quarter and some rooted misconceptions, the main question revolves around gold’s future and its role in an investment portfolio. Gold Investor Volume 3 shows that the strategic case of gold is as relevant as ever.
