U.S. Global Investors Has Over 50 Years Of Experience Investing In The Gold Space

At U.S. Global Investors we advocate for the Golden Rule of having a 10 percent portfolio weighting in gold and rebalancing annually. The yellow metal acts as a portfolio diversifier, often moving differently than other assets, such as equities and bonds. Many investors look to gold as a store of value during times of economic uncertainty.

With a high level of expertise in this specialized sector of precious minerals, our portfolio management team includes professionals with experience in geology, mineral resources and mining finance.
