Precious metals 2010's top performing asset
07 March 2011
Precious metals were the best performing asset class for the second successive year and the fourth time in the past five years, according to new research by Lloyds TSB. In 2010, investors enjoyed a return of 42% from precious metals. Continued uncertainly over the prospects for the global economy contributed to the increase in the price of precious metals as investors sought to maintain the value of their investments.
