According to a 2021 report from the World Gold Council, gold is the most effective commodity investment.

Due to benefits such as it being an effective portfolio diversifier and it outperforming other types of commodities during periods of low inflation.

“When Wall Street is afraid, the world is dazzled by gold”

is what The Motley Fool Author, Robin Hartill, used to open her article on 5 Good Reasons to Invest in Gold No Matter What the Stock Market is Doing.

Gold has long been considered a “safe haven” for investors as it generally retains its value even during economic downturns.

In fact, the iconic Warren Buffett, who has a renowned disdain for investing in gold, did so at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic after his company Berkshire Hathaway sold its entire shares in the aviation industry, one of the worst-hit industries of the pandemic and instead bought 20.9 million shares in Canadian-based gold mining company, Barrick Gold.

Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris suggests that at least 30% of your portfolio should be in gold. “You need to have part of a portfolio invested in gold. I say 20% to 30%. I used to be at 50%.
