CFA Society India is pleased to announce the upcoming webinar “Practitioners’ Insights: Investing in Gold”.

Gold is dear to most Indians. Yet, from an asset allocation perspective, there is a risk that gold may not be getting the attention it deserves. In this webinar, among others, Krishna Hegde, CFA will address the following important questions on Gold.

  • Why should investors evaluate gold as an investment?
  • From an asset allocation perspective, what are potential ranges for different investor types? Given where we are in a cycle, how should we think of it?
  • How do precious metals figure in different asset allocation theories? Cases for and case against allocation?
  • Relative performance of gold versus equity & debt. What are key learnings and implications?
  • What are the range of investment options for gold?
  • How is physical gold priced? Connections with international prices/MCX
