As a retiree or pre-retiree you know how important it is to preserve and protect your retirement savings.
We have friends who are yet to recover from the effects of the GFC. You may know someone in the same situation.
The experience set us on a path to save and protect the retirement investments we have.
Back in 2008 we did not know how or where to buy gold bullion.
It sounded like something only for the rich.
We didn’t have the “safe haven” properties of gold working for us from 2007 onwards – the GFC years.
Did you know that gold rose 117% in value between 2007 – 2013? During that time the Dow did not increase a single point – in fact it had dropped 54% by 2009.
We wish we had known about investing in physical gold back then.
But “wishing won’t make it so” and we’re just glad we understand the investment properties of gold bullion today.
Investing in gold is something we think every retiree should at least think about.
Take the time to consider if this “store of value” is worth holding in your retirement portfolio.
It may not be for you but at least you will have made an informed decision.
Diversifying part of your portfolio with a precious metal could help protect you against the next GFC.
