A safe haven is a phrase for an investment that is very likely to retain its value or even increase in value during times of market turbulence. Investors seek safe havens to limit exposure to losses when market downturns occur. What is perceived as a safe haven alters over time as market conditions change; What appears to be a safe investment in one down market could be a disastrous investment in a different down market episode.
