Oxford Economics investment advice touts more silver
- Published: Nov 6, 2022, 12 PM
A recent report by Oxford Economics commissioned by the Silver Institute suggests a balanced investment portfolio should include 4% to 6% in silver.
The report, The Relevance of Silver in a Global Asset Portfolio, offered projection for silver investment over the next 10 years based on 20 years of data.
Oxford Economics compared silver’s historical performance with a range of traditional asset classes, including stocks, bonds, gold, and other commodities, from January 1999 to June 2022.
The analysis found that found that silver “was shown to have a relatively low historical correlation with asset classes other than gold, suggesting silver’s valuable diversification potential in investment portfolios.”
Furthermore, the study concluded that: “Based on analysis of over 20 years of historic market data, our simulations indicate that an efficient investment portfolio would have had a 4.9% allocation to silver for a medium-risk investor. Moreover, looking forward to the next decade, our baseline economic projections and the strengthening structural demand outlook for silver indicates an even higher medium-risk optimal portfolio allocation to silver of 6%.
“With the average investment portfolio having only indirect exposure to silver of around 0.2% through a basket of commodities, this suggests that investment managers should consider the case for a more significant allocation to silver.”
