Top tips on how to invest in gold

by 20 February 2012

There are various ways of investing in gold, with owning the physical commodity probably being the most reliable, but not necessarily the most convenient. Alternatives include Exchange Traded Products, Exchange Traded Funds and Certificates, which enable investment in gold without having to take delivery of the actual product. All of these, however, carry inherent risks. In our opinion, it is best to buy coins or bullion and store it in a safe at home or in a bank safety deposit box. Just don't forget where you've left it...and remember, like any investment, prices can fall as quickly as they can rise.
