Get Into Gold

An Investment Worth Making

Consider this: if you’d bought £55 of gold every month for 18 years from 2002, you would have over £28,000 of gold by 2020. Compare that with putting the same amount into a 3% cash ISA – £15,703.51 – or simply setting it aside with no interest at all – £11,880*.

When it comes to investing, spreading risk helps to avoid overexposure to any one particular asset class. Many experts, including the World Gold Council suggest putting around 2–10% of your portfolio into a safe haven investment such as gold.
