I think you make a fair judgement - these are pretty sound.
Buying gold is not an investment really- it’s commodity speculation but that’s OK.
Investing in government bonds is indeed safe- although no doubt they will ask you if you are risk averse.
The last one is good but you must be careful- for an investment in a new technology to succeed the technology itself must succeed and be adopted- and of course the majority fail. This is a very high risk/reward ratio compared with your government bonds (which is fine!) but you should be aware of it.
Often when markets turn bearish, investments are transferred into utilities and energy companies. In the current climate, an investment in something like [[Shell]] or [[BP]] would actually be a very sound choice. A quote from [[BBC]] Radio 4 yesterday, “The days of cheap energy are well and truly over.”
Also make sure you look at the [[Baker Tilly]] profile.
