Frequently Asked Questions

There cannot be a single best way to invest in gold. Had there been one, all investors would have rushed there leaving the alternatives redundant. That aside, the preferred way to invest in gold may be to be fully aware of the potential benefits and risks of the method you opt for. For example, if you want physical gold coins or bars, what are the upsides and downsides, where to get them from, and how to best store them. If you want to instead go for ETFs that track the price of gold, how have they performed so far and what is the outlook?

In 2022, there may be multiple interest rate hikes by the Bank of Canada and other central banks, the most dominant perhaps being the US Federal Reserve. Separately, the geopolitical disturbance in Eastern Europe and a possible resurgence of the pandemic -- both of which may adversely impact economic growth -- may lead to investors chasing safe assets like gold. In such a scene, gold stocks might benefit. However, a lot would also depend on the fundamentals of the company. For example, what were its financial results in the past years and the quantum of tentative reserves it holds in the region/s where it mines gold?

Similar to how there can be no best way to invest in gold, there cannot arguably be a cheapest way to buy gold. Neighborhood shops may advertise that they offer the best price for gold coins and bars, but it is always advisable to be cautious when purchasing physical gold. Ask about the purity and the accreditations like BBB that the seller holds. Another alternative may be to invest in gold stocks that may be trading for a few dollars on the TSX or other exchanges.

Gold has remained an investment choice of many from time immemorial. But not everyone may want to invest in gold at a time when other investment options like shares, retirement funds and term deposits with banks are available. Not all these options have fixed returns. For example, shares of companies may lose value, but even investments in gold are prone to downside risks. Before making any decision, being aware of the potential benefits and risks of all available investment options is a good idea.
