  1. Dear Aman, please read my reply in addition to dear justgrowmymoney.

    I’m unable to understand the place of Gold in a retirement portfolio. If a person is saving for his kids marriage, I can understand the allocation towards Gold but not for retirement.

    Can you provide any specific reason for the same.

    Please do note, your own condition may change after 3-5-7Y & accordingly your asset allocation may change or should be changed as per new situation. So again it’s floating kind thing & not a fixed for life type.



  2. Asset allocation depends on one’s personal risk taking ability as well among other factors [including age]. There is no one size fits all.

    Where are you Current investments/savings etc. and what are your financial goals, if any, in addition to retirement?
