We have been bullish on gold since last summer, and the case for investing in gold has not been this compelling in years. Gold prices have reached all-time highs in recent days, surpassing the previous high set in September 2011, and current price trends suggest a longer, sustained rally in gold, similar to the 2001-2008 secular rally.
The persistence of negative real rates and supply and demand dynamics appear in favor of the metal moving forward. Gold continues to be a scarce commodity, and the fact that there have been no significant new gold discoveries since 2016 only adds to its supply pressure. Demand for gold, however, has continued to rise as investors have sought exposure and central banks have added to their gold reserves.
Investors have long been attracted to gold’s many potential benefits. It has historically improved portfolio diversification, acted as an inflation hedge, and proven a safe haven asset in times of market uncertainty. But some may be surprised by its impressive total return since the turn of the century, proving gold’s appreciation potential.

Investors can consider both a physical gold bullion investment as well as exposure to gold via companies that search for and extract gold from the ground, or gold miners. Both are affected by changes in the price of gold but offer different risk/reward profiles. Gold bullion has displayed a lower volatility profile historically and forms the basis for the price of gold. Gold miners, while a historically more volatile investment offering greater upside and downside, have reemerged from a period of management turnover and fiscal/corporate restructuring and are now better positioned to return value to shareholders in our view.
