Alternatives allocations amongst DC schemes is on the rise. According to Mercer’s European asset allocation insights for 2021, after equities, alternatives amount to the second largest allocation; often for growth and defensive objectives. Gold is robust and multifaceted in its nature and utility and is worth consideration by DC pension schemes given it is highly liquid and a proven and effective portfolio diversifier. Join us for a lively discussion exploring how an allocation to gold can help protect against downside risk, boost liquidity and enhance a portfolio’s overall risk-adjusted returns. After this session participants should have a better understanding of gold’s attributes, what drives its demand and how gold differs from the wider commodity complex.
