Our most recent white paper specifically focuses on the two key reasons investors typically cite as critical decision-making factors supporting an investment in gold:

  • Protection against inflation
  • Safe Haven investment

In the context of the current economic environment, we put forth arguments supporting both of these investment theses. We show how expectations for future inflation have become elevated, and are likely to remain so, given a backdrop of easy monetary policies the world over. Additionally, we propose that continue leverage throughout the economy is likely to result in ongoing heightened levels of volatility, while the degree of uncertainty remains over the future trajectory of the global environment. These dynamics may continue to vindicate an investment in gold as a protection against inflation and as a safe haven investment. In turn, we believe these trends are likely to underpin continued strength in the price of gold over the foreseeable future. Download the free report by entering your information above.
