Nick Bullman on Newstalk’s “Breakfast Business” interviewed Research Director, Mark O’Byrne, last week.
A range of aspects about the gold market were discussed including whether to own gold mining shares or gold bullion, the extensive research on gold as a proven safe haven asset, why Germans are the largest buyers of gold in the EU today, lack of awareness of growing risks among ‘Pixie’ Irish and UK investors including the risks posed by ‘BREXIT’ and indeed the significant geopolitical risks of today.
With regard to asset allocation, the importance of owning physical gold rather than ETFs, paper proxies and mining shares were considered.
O’Byrne said that given the increasing financial and geopolitical risks and indeed stretched valuations with many stocks markets internationally and indeed bond markets looking “toppy” – higher allocations to gold are merited and a 10% to 20% is being recommended to GoldCore clients in order to to hedge the risks of today.
