It is interesting to note that all of the platinum ever mined would only come up to your ankles in an Olympic swimming pool, whereas all the gold produced would fill more than three.

17 August 2020 | Ryan Giannotto, CFA, Director of Research

When no company or industry is immune from disruptive challenge, perhaps never has the number of potential losers been so plentiful, nor the disparity between winners and losers been so vast.

The mathematical reality is that the venerable 60/40 was a sub-optimal investment in 2019—simply adding gold, and in any quantity, would have immediately improved portfolio efficiency. Even during a historic year for bonds, substituting gold for fixed income exposure in 2019, in any amount, automatically constructed a superior 60/40 portfolio.
