Today, we’re sitting down with LifeGuide Partner and Chief Investment Officer, Zak Lutz, to answer some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. This is the second part in our six-part Q&A series.
A: This question comes up from time to time as well, typically in times of uncertainty or inflation.
Like Bitcoin, gold and silver don’t possess any intrinsic value. While they do carry a small degree of limited industrial use, they don’t really produce anything.
If you chart the value of gold over the past 50–80 years, you’ll see it’s had large fluctuations in the short-term and little real long-term growth. When you look at short periods of time, the value of gold and silver can seem enticing. But when you look over longer periods of time, they really haven’t produced a return like we want to see out of an investment.
Bottom line: People often speculate on or feel good about owning gold or silver; however, we tend not to recommend them for investment purposes based on their risk/return profiles.
