Commodities Hedging is an Option in Some Investment Cycles: LM Waterhouse

Guangdong Sheng, China – July 30, 2018 – A purely equity and bond based portfolio has a downside of not being sufficiently diversified. Rise in interest rates and other factors can easily hurt returns from equities and bonds, and therefore smart investors can look at commodities as a hedge in a strong market.

Since 2016, commodities have registered good returns, thus gaining attention of investors. Since inflation too is projected to rise, this has made them a good investment option for 2018. A recent survey has revealed that among the very high net worth investors, the majority expect a recession in US in the coming two years. Commodities should therefore be considered seriously.

A good way to invest in commodities is through index and commodity funds. These funds track a range of commodities such as precious metals, mining, energy, industrial metals, grains and even water. The price range for buying commodities is low, and thus investors can look into a long term investment strategy. From a historical perspective, an investment in S&P GSCI would have fetched returns around 10 percent in terms of CAGR.
