Today’s financial markets are volatile and the price of quality assets that provide a good yield is often mediocre at best. Other times they are a gamble. Investors looking to create a retirement fund you can rely on should look to diversify your investment portfolio by adding safe-haven assets. Gold and annuities are both solid investments that should not be overlooked.

Why invest in annuities

Annuities are a popular investment tool for retirees because they represent a safe monthly income floor. As an investment vehicle, annuities are one of the few assets that are properly structured to guarantee investors a regular yield thus do a good job of cushioning an uncertain income void. However, annuities do not perform well against interest over the long-term so are best purchased when you retire or close in on retirement.

Whilst it is possible to make a lump sum payment, the majority of annuity plans involve making periodic payments into an insurance fund. Annuity programs offer tax-deferred growth on earnings and have no limit on the amount you want to contribute which is a benefit for forward-thinking investors looking to build a retirement fund.

There are typically three types of annuities available; fixed, indexed and variable. The mechanics of the plan you choose impact the investment, payout, and regulations that come with the product. You will also have to pay commission fees with a portion of your original investment capital. It is also possible to transfer annuities to an IRA or Gold IRA without incurring any tax penalties.

Why invest in Gold

Gold has a solid reputation as a safe haven investment. Used as a functional commodity and an investment vehicle, the precious metal has a proven history of building a store of wealth over the long-term. Gold and other precious metals are therefore an ideal choice for young investors to add to a retirement portfolio.

Because gold performs well in times of financial crisis, professional traders use precious metals to hedge against paper-based assets and weakened fiat currencies. As the US dollar continues to decline and create higher inflation, gold acts as a defense against a fluctuating market and always gains value against stock market volatility.

Gold is also a finite asset that is in constant demand across a number of high-impact industries including electronics, automotive and emerging technologies. The value of gold will always increase over time thus should be included in your retirement plan.
