New research shows the importance of owning gold bullion in a pension. The research looks at the important role that gold bullion can play as a diversification in pension portfolios.
Pensions allocations to gold are very low in Europe and especially in the UK and yet gold has an important role to play in preserving and growing pension wealth over the long term. UK pension funds' overexposure to British assets and lack of diversification may cost pension holders dearly in the coming years.

Professor of Finance in Trinity College Dublin, Dr Brian Lucey warns in the foreword to our guide about the lack of diversification in UK pension funds. “Pensions need balance. UK pension funds have been slow to embrace gold and this imbalance has cost pension holders dearly” said Dr Lucey.
“Small allocations to gold balance and stabilise pensions in the long term and gold should be an essential part of every UK pension fund. This guide should be read by people involved in the provision of pensions and or those who own a pension in the UK,” said Dr Lucey.
“Today, diversification remains vitally important for people in the UK and an allocation to gold bullion in a pension portfolio will likely again preserve and grow wealth in the coming years,” according to Dr Lucey.
