Nitesh Shah, Director, Research, WisdomTree | Philip Newman, Managing Director, Metals Focus
Silver is often described as the hybrid metal: it has a strong correlation with gold (often seen as a defensive asset) and at the same time it is quite cyclical (driven by its industrial uses).
In this webinar Nitesh Shah, WisdomTree will be joined by Philip Newman, Metals Focus, to take a deeper look at what is happening in the silver market. Together they will explore:
+ Higher inflationary environments bode well for gold and silver. Will an economic recovery give a further tailwind to silver’s price?
+ If markets reassess their expectations for the pace at which central banks tighten monetary policy, could silver prices come under pressure?
+ Will silver’s growing use in photovoltaics and automobiles, in an increasingly electrified world, drive silver demand higher?
+ Both supply and demand for silver fell in 2020 amid the COVID pandemic, but on net, the market surplus rose (excluding ETPs). Can demand rise faster than supply in 2021 to restore a lower market surplus?
