Frank Holmes was featured in a Barron’s article about how retirees can add gold to their portfolio as a potential hedge against inflation. As gold has rallied around 10 percent since early March and is above $1,700 an ounce for the first time in seven years, more investors are investigating bullion as an addition to their portfolio. Frank reminds investors that gold rallied to its all-time high in 2011 due to negative inflation-adjusted interest rates. With benchmark rates now near zero, it could be the start of another gold rally.
Frank recommends that investors have a 10 percent weighting in the metal – 5 percent in physical gold and 5 percent in high-quality mining companies. For the full interview, read the Barron’s article by clicking the button below.
