Gold vs Property

Wealth protection and long term financial planning historically has considered property, bricks and mortar, or more recently concrete and steel as a safe haven for capital asset protection and growth. Owning something real, which can be rented to another for a healthy annual return, has been the staple diet for investors who shy from the world’s complex financial products and equities. Neither property, complex financial products nor equities have escaped the difficulties in recent years. In fact the over reliance on these products has in part been responsible for some of the boom bust cycles in modern times.
