How to Diversify
Free Introduction to Owning Precious Metals
The Benefits of Precious Metals Investing
Precious metals have long been subject to investor demand for the purpose of portfolio diversification. There are various reasons why an investor may choose precious metals for this purpose. One primary reason relates to the inverse relationship that occurs at times between precious metals prices and the value of the dollar.
Diversifying with physical precious metals should not be confused with investing in precious metals ETFs. Real precious metals are physical assets that you can store in a vault or store at home. Ownership of an ETF is, by definition, owning an exchange-traded fund that generally does not always provide you with ownership of physical metal. This is in contrast to any metal you purchase from Monex, which can be delivered directly to you upon your request on full payment.
Diversification to Your Portfolio
In addition to the reasons mentioned above, there are additional benefits to diversifying a portfolio with precious metals. Unlike owning stocks, owning physical precious metals also means that you are putting your hard earned money into an investment that you can hold. You can’t physically hold a stock in your hand like you can with gold, silver, platinum or palladium bullion. And unlike physical paper money, the value of precious metals is not backed by the promise of a government. The value of precious metals is determined by various factors including investor demand, geopolitical events, and industrial demand.
