Pro-Tip: Don’t put all your eggs in one basket! 

  • For example, if your goal is for the long term, you can put a major chunk in equity-based investment options, some part of it in debt, and a small portion in gold investment options. 
  • Ideally, one can allocate 5-10% towards gold as it hedges your portfolio against inflation and market volatility.
  • The proportion of equity, debt, and gold in your portfolio depends on an individual’s risk appetite and goals.
  • Gold acts as a hedge against inflation, debt and fixed-income instruments offer stability and security, and equity aims at offering inflation-beating returns.
