Investing in gold

Gold is back in fashion

Gold’s reputation as a safe haven is also coming to the fore now that markets have become more volatile and the political backdrop less predictable.

At MoneyWeek, we've been tipping gold since 2001. In that time it went from $250 to $1,900 an ounce in 2011 (a 660% increase), hitting record highs each year since 2002.

Successful investing is about the diversification and management of risk. It makes sense to have a part of your wealth invested in gold. At MoneyWeek, we show you the best ways to do that.
