Investing in Gold.

Given the current global growth slowdown and recessionary indicators, should pension schemes be looking to allocate to more alternative assets or safe haven assets, such as gold? Central bank buying demand for gold has been growing exponentially over the last few years, but should pension funds also be looking at the asset? How can schemes measure the value of gold within a portfolio for reporting purposes?


John Reade (Chief Market Strategist and Head of Research, World Gold Council)
