Gold has constantly stood the test of time and is considered a safe haven against stock market volatility, currency devaluation and falling real estate prices. As with any commodity, gold’s value fluctuates, and past performance cannot guarantee future returns.

Since each type of investment responds differently over time, diversifying reduces the risk of significant damage to your financial well-being should a single type of asset class crash. Mark Naaman, CEO and co-founder of Allegiance Gold, noted that deciding on a long-term investment strategy, that is properly diversified, can be a daunting challenge – you need to know what asset class (such as stocks, bonds, gold, and real estate) to invest in, how much money to allocate in each one, and how to properly diversify within a particular asset class. Therefore, not all investing strategies are successful; however, those that are have been strategically diversified and spread across at least four different asset classes.
When asked whether precious metals should be part of an investment portfolio, Naaman didn’t hesitate at all, “Absolutely! Gold has constantly stood the test of time and is considered a safe haven against stock market volatility, currency devaluation and falling real estate prices. As with any commodity, gold’s value fluctuates, and past performance cannot guarantee future returns. However, investors have done well with gold over the long-term.”
Paper-based assets, such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, make up the majority of the portfolios and retirement accounts, but if the dollar collapses, so does your financial outlook. By keeping tangible assets like precious metals as part of your portfolio, you are balancing and reducing the risk and following the four main rules of diversifying your investments.
Joined by his side, Alex Ebkarian, COO and co-founder of Allegiance Gold, quickly pointed out the fact that one asset class that oftentimes is overlooked by financial advisors are precious metals. Ebkarian goes on to add that the truth is that Americans are largely misinformed about gold investments, even though since the year 2000 gold has outperformed the stock market, mainly for two reasons: on the one hand, the majority of financial advisors do not sell physical assets; on the other hand, when asked about gold, often advisors do not have extensive knowledge about physical precious metals products, therefore they discourage investing in gold.
However, the reality is that those same investors will face challenges in the coming years since we are living in volatile financial times with overvalued stocks, global economic slowdown, full of political tensions, debt bubble that leads to currency devaluations and monetary crisis. Gold is a must-have to hedge against them all. “It is a commodity that maintains its intrinsic value, which helps to keep your portfolio balanced,” said Ebkarian.
Both Naaman and Ebkarian encourage investors to research diversifying their assets with physical gold, as it is the best insurance for a secure future. Interested investors are encouraged to contact Allegiance Gold for a free consultation by calling 844-790-9191.
