Flights to Quality

Precious metals Market report by Roland Khounlivong, GoldMoney, Head of Dealing and Settlements


It is pleasing to see precious metals in favour as 2015 gets underway in earnest. Whilst ‘quality’ might be a subjective term, it seems to have been applied, in my opinion quite rightly, to gold, silver, platinum and palladium by investors looking to protect themselves from a start-of-the-year volatility storm in other asset classes. In the wider commodity world, oil and copper prices are still languishing whilst precious metals have shown their value to investors as a stand-alone and increasingly non-correlated asset class. I think this should be considered as bullish.

as at 13:00 GMT 2015-01-15 

Further cheer should be taken from the fact that precious metals are finding support even against a deflationary landscape and weak global growth forecasts. I recognise that some of the positive price action can be attributed to a fall in the US Dollar, following a market revision to the timetable for US rate rises, but maintain that the shine of gold, silver, platinum and palladium is being recognised as an effective solution for portfolios.

As part of the ‘risk off trading’ this week, demand for government debt has seen yields reaching record lows and going below zero in some instances: investors paying more than par for 5-year bonds issued by Switzerland, Finland, Japan and Germany, for example.

All of this week’s activity has re-enforced the notion that precious metals, with their unique properties as an asset class, should be considered by investors looking to diversify their portfolios.

GoldMoney is one of the world’s leading providers of physical gold, silver, platinum and palladium for retail and corporate customers. Customers can trade and store precious metal online easily and securely, 24 hours a day.

GoldMoney stores around $1.2billion of precious metals worldwide for over 20,000 customers.

GoldMoney has offices in Jersey and Hong Kong.  It offers its customers storage facilities in Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland and the UK provided by the leading non-bank vault operators Brink's, Via Mat, Malca-Amit, G4S and Rhenus Logistics.

Historically gold has been an excellent way to preserve purchasing power over long periods of time. For example, today it takes almost the same amount of gold to buy a barrel of crude oil as it did 60 years ago which is in stark contrast to the price of oil in terms of national currencies such as the US dollar.

GoldMoney is regulated by the Jersey Financial Services Commission and complies with Jersey's anti-money laundering laws and regulations. GoldMoney has established industry-leading governance policies and procedures to protect customers' assets with independent audit reporting every 3 months by two leading audit firms.
