Gold Active Certificate

The precious yellow metal, one of the oldest forms of investment, has not lost any of its lustre in today’s world. In these uncertain market times, gold tends to hold or increase its value. Considered the ultimate safe haven asset, gold should be a staple of every diversified, long‑term portfolio to provide protection and improve its overall risk/reward profile.

Swissquote Gold Active Certificate offers a smarter way to invest in the rare metal for the long term. To counteract the fact that gold goes through significant periods of stagnant and bearish pricing, part of the strategy aims to generate income. While the majority of the portfolio remains dedicated to long‑term investment in gold, the algorithm occasionally activates a "covered call" strategy. This method consists of periodically selling call options to lower volatility and achieve returns that can be expected to outshine the total return generated by a portfolio holding the same allocation of physical gold.
