Webinar – The strategic case for gold

Webinar – The strategic case for gold

On Friday 24 July 2020, UBP's experts Norman Villamin and Peter Kinsella hosted a webinar with John Reade, Chief Market Strategist at the World Gold Council, to discuss the constructive environment for gold.



Here is a summary of the key points presented:

  • Negative real interest rates around the world will provide a highly supportive environment for gold over the coming years.
  • Investors have largely missed the up move since March, and only recently began to increase long gold futures positions.
  • The options market shows that investors anticipate substantial gold upside over the coming years, judging by the high price of low-delta longer-dated XAU calls.
  • The key characteristics of gold – long-term returns, liquidity, and diversification – help to support the argument that almost all portfolios will benefit from an allocation to gold.
  • Gold is currently a tale of two markets. Whilst investor interest in gold has increased significantly in 2020 so far, consumer demand has fallen sharply. An important area to monitor is how global consumer demand recovers.
  • The level of risk and uncertainty ahead, coupled with a backdrop of low interest rates and decreasing bond yields, should continue to provide support for further gold investment demand.

Des joyaux cachés parmi les SMID Caps suisses et européennes

Les sociétés de petite et moyenne capitalisation («SMID Caps») affichent traditionnellement des taux de croissance et des rendements supérieurs sur le long terme en comparaison des grandes capitalisations. Il est en effet plus facile de générer une croissance dynamique à partir d’une plus petite structure. Par ailleurs, les SMID Caps suisses et européennes offrent généralement aux investisseurs une exposition idéale aux grandes tendances de croissance séculaires.
