How did gold perform as a currency hedge in 2014?
Jan 1, 2015

Just in case you're wondering whether we are going to disclose our favourite asset classes for 2015, we reiterate what we have always said - follow the ideal mix in your asset allocation. And besides stocks and fixed income, make sure you do own some gold to hedge yourself against inflation and currency risks. In fact if you look at the performance of major currencies in 2014, gold was the clear winner after the US dollar. So having the yellow metal in small quantity will certainly be a good insurance for your portfolio in 2015.
