For investors, silver is an attractive investment because it diversifies investment assets, has shown competitive growth in recent years, and preserves wealth against the ravages of inflation.
Also, because it has an inherent value that is immutable and permanent, it provides a stability that stocks and other funds cannot deliver. Accordingly, many experts suggest that investors should include it among their investment assets.
When you compare silver prices to dollar values, an even more compelling picture emerges. Take, for example, the years between 1971 and 1981, in which the U.S. dollar lost more than half of its value while silver prices rose nearly five times.
No one can predict the future but many financial planners still suggest including silver among the investments of their clients.
