Gold as an investment vehicle

I've been looking at plenty of alternative investments. After all, most financial planners will tell you not to put all of your eggs in one basket. Meaning spread your assets around different asset classes. These classes can include cash, stocks, fixed instruments (bonds) and precious metals like gold.

I've been thinking about investing in gold for some time now. Getting involved with a company like General Metals Corporation will let me invest without having to actually keep the physical gold itself. Have you ever held gold? It's heavy. If you wanted to invest a significant amount, where would you keep it?

At this point, I'm not able to make a significant investment. But that's ok. Because a company like this is just the right place for the small to mid-sized investor. After all, shouldn't everyone have the ability to make money?
