Gold and Silver exposure


Recommended Posts

Not really what you were asking but surely gold or silver have two primary benefits:

  • A hedge against inflation (cash devaluing)
  • A physical asset which is unrecorded by government (unless you go mad and buy loads in a short period) and therefore not taken into account for means testing, inheritance tax or any future taxation of wealth

If you haven't got the latter advantage then stocks and shares which also hedge inflation, and more as per the chart below for the US, and additionally pay a dividend are surely better.

I have gold, I see a role for it, but I don't have much - c. 1% of investments.

Anyway, please ignore if you are set upon your course of action.
