All that glitters in your portfolio
Give your portfolio some real weight
Go for gold. Good as gold. The gold standard. Gold medal performance. The precious metal has come to represent solidity, wealth, and impeccable taste. As an investment product, it represents diversification and for many investors, a strategy for hedging against stock market volatility, currency instability, and geo-political risk.
Gold is available in equities margin and registered accounts.
Where is my gold held? Can I keep it myself?
It can be stored at the Royal Canadian Mint, which is how you can hold gold in your registered accounts like an RRSP or TFSA. But you can definitely have it shipped to you and do whatever you want with it. Keep it under your pillow, buried in the yard, or use it as a paperweight. It’s your gold, after all.
