Gold bullion has seen a double-digit YTD advance in 2019, and gold mining equities have also posted notable returns. Tocqueville Asset Management's John Hathaway and Ryan McIntyre join Ed Coyne, Senior Managing Director at Sprott Asset Management, to discuss their outlooks and suggest the optimal gold portfolio allocation for most investors.
Real Vision features John Hathaway, Senior Portfolio Manager of Tocqueville Asset Management, and Dan Tapiero of DTAP Capital. They take a closer look at gold’s recent breakout and explore why gold equities are so attractive right now.
Globally, gold is trusted. Gold creates a feeling of safety and security. The majority of retail investors and fashion and lifestyle consumers trust gold more than the currencies of countries.
The Sprott Physical Gold Trust offers a number of advantages over other gold funds and is perhaps the next best thing to holding the actual metal. The fact that it is currently trading at a discount is a nice bonus. As such, it may be worthwhile taking a position in the fund.
With volatility in mind, investors may consider alternative index-based gold miner ETFs like the Sprott Gold Miners ETF (NYSE Arca: SGDM) and Sprott Junior Gold Miners ETF (NYSE Arca: SGDJ). Unlike traditional market cap-weighted funds, SGDM and SGDJ follow a factor-based or smart-beta indexing methodology that can potentially enhance returns.
Sprott is involved in several ventures that seek to deliver the next generation of precious metals investing. These projects combine the benefits of digital blockchain technology and the proven advantages of investing in physical precious metals bullion.
