“ReSolve’s Riffs” is live on Youtube every Friday afternoon to debate the most relevant investment topics of the day.
The recent pandemic-led selloff has once again highlighted the importance of having ballast in portfolios to deal with extreme equity volatility – and ultimately protect investors from disastrous outcomes.
This episode discussed:
- Whether bonds can continue to provide protection given rock-bottom yields
- If gold will outshine other safe-haven assets in the current environment
- The tradeoffs between sovereigns and the shiny metal
- The current economic environment and the possibility of a paradigm shift
The team also explored how both bonds and gold should fit into a risk parity framework where investors do not necessarily have to make a choice but can rather benefit from owning either one – or both – at the right time.
Thanks for watching and see you next week.
