Gold: The Easiest Diversifier

Axel Merk contends the “easiest diversifier is gold.” Merk explains, “I do very much have gold. I have it in physical form and exchange traded form and other means of investing in gold. Yes, I say it’s the easiest diversifier. It’s not always the best diversifier. Again, I do like it. The reason why I say easy rather than best is if you do it for portfolio allocation, what you want is something that has a positive return and has a low correlation to what you have. In the long run, gold has proven that. . . . Since the early 1970s, gold has had an annual return of 8%. Going forward, people say yeah, but it doesn’t pay any interest. Maybe what is paying interest does not pay you a real rate of return. Otherwise, gold would not have an average 8% return per year. Even though the Fed is raising rates, I think the Fed is going to be behind the curve. So, I think gold will be doing just fine.”
