The Role of Gold in a Portfolio According to Graves

John Graves, ChFC, CLU, an independent financial advisorJohn Graves is the founder of The Renaissance Group, independent financial planners and Registered Investment Advisors in Ventura, CA. He is also the author of The 7% Solution: You Can Afford a Comfortable Retirement.

Appearing on the New York Markets Live show, Graves explains how he believes gold should comprise 5-8% of a typical portfolio. Because “nobody can predict the future…and if there is a catastrophic event and the stock market dives gold will go through the roof. Gold is the ultimate portfolio insurance tool. I don’t know if things will be wonderful or horrible. If things go horrible I know that gold will increase significantly in value.”
