Why invest in small bars?
Investing in a smaller bar, such as the 50-gram gold bar, has many advantages. In general, investors like to invest in gold to use it as a hedge against inflation, but you can also enjoy a couple of other advantages when you buy 50 g of gold bars.
Small size, great flexibility
Smaller in size, the 50 g gold bar offers flexibility as it means you can buy larger quantities and resell them gradually, as and when needed. So, technically, you could own 1 kg or more of gold but in smaller sizes, giving you more flexibility to sell.
Investment portfolio diversification
The 50 g gold bar can also be used as a way to diversify your precious metal holdings.
By adding the 50-gram gold bar to your portfolio, you introduce an additional layer of diversification to your portfolio, potentially reducing overall risk. Having a mix of different assets, including precious metals like gold, can help balance your portfolio's performance and protect against unexpected market events.
