Tariffs, Tightening, Trumponomics: Time to Reconsider Gold? – Sprott Asset Management – 3.15.18


Now On Demand.

Despite soaring equity markets and higher interest rates, gold bullion has quietly gained approximately 23% over the past 2 years (1/1/2016 – 12/31/2017). We believe advisors should be mindful of the significant emerging risks that could negatively impact financial markets. In this webcast, we explore how an investment in gold can potentially enhance overall portfolio diversification in a changing market environment.

  • How will gold perform in an environment of higher inflation, interest rates, debt levels and equity market volatility?
  • Will central banks be able to unwind their balance sheets and normalize interest rates without triggering a market disruption?
  • How could the threat of a global trade war affect financial markets, asset values and economies?
