Gold has been among us for centuries. Owning gold jewelry is a symbol of status and financial wealth. With the world being hit by an unexpected pandemic, people have been more cautious with how they spend their money. But did you know that buying gold is actually beneficial to your financial health? Here’s why :
Gold has been known to be a valuable investment tool because of the liquidity it offers. Compared to other forms of investment such as stocks and bonds, gold is an asset that is easy to liquidate in times of an emergency making it a ‘safety net’ for people. There is a huge market for gold and one can easily locate buyers. Thus, the ease of investment is another reason to include gold in one’s investment portfolio.
Gold has appreciated in value over the years. Even during the ongoing pandemic, gold has maintained, in fact increased in value, making it a stable form of investment. Considering things are still very much uncertain with regard to the coronavirus, and the global economy is still healing, investing in gold is a safe path towards wealth creation. Gold has been proven to withstand economic and geopolitical uncertainties. Another reason to invest in gold is the transparency that comes with it. Unlike any other financial investments, gold is extremely easy to purchase and trade in without involving any tedious process.
When it comes to investments, we usually think of the monetary gain. However, gold can also be used to be passed down from one generation to another. Gold can be used as a long term investment in building family assets as it carries your legacy to the future generation. In Asian households, physical gold is also a symbol of family wealth. In wedding ceremonies, gold is given as a form of blessings. Certain gold jewelry may hold a sentimental value to the owner, forming heirloom pieces.
Yes, gold is a profitable form of investment but at the same time, it can also be used as jewelry. People love to wear jewelry not only for the heritage, glam or their liking towards it but also for the positive effect it brings to their body which creates an aura of greatness and everlasting happiness. Gold today comes in many forms and designs, whether it’s earrings, bracelets, rings or even necklaces. You can custom make your own jewelry, set the budget and even pay in installments. All of which wasn’t available before. However, do take note of the type of gold you’re investing in. There are two common types of gold sold here in Singapore, the 916 and 999 gold. 916 gold contains 91.6% of gold and is mixed with other metals while 999 gold contains 99.9% gold (the purest form of gold).
