Investors have begun withdrawing from assets perceived as risky and flocking towards “real” assets and safer bonds. The best performing investments in the five years following the financial crisis have been oil, corn, and precious metals.
“There are far more discussions of gold, silver, even farming and infrastructure, these days – not just developed world bonds and equities,” Navtej Nandra, head of international at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, emphasizes.
Some of the best performers over the past five years, though, have been gold and silver. Gold has returned 143 percent and silver has returned 121 percent.
