About this talk

One of the biggest stories of 2020, Gold has hit new heights in value in recent months. Far more than just a currency and a reliable store of value, it is also seeing growing demand for applications in electronics and industry. In this instalment of Metal.Digital’s Spotlight Series, we examine some of the less-heralded uses of Gold, focusing primarily on its applications in the transition to a fully electrified economy, and how Gold may be used as part of a diversified investment strategy. We will answer questions including: • Why is Gold used in electronics, and how much might this demand-side pressure change? • How might supply-side factors, including recycling, change over the next decade? • How can investors ensure that their investments only use ethically-sourced Gold? • Can metals in general be used in an ESG or SRI-orientated portfolio? Professional investors can expect to leave better understanding how their investment strategy might include Gold over the next decade.

NTree’s goal is to educate European investors on the investment opportunities in the Chinese and Commodities markets. As the Chinese economy continues to grow at breakneck pace and China remains at the forefront in innovation in high-tech sectors, the investment case for China is stronger than ever. Meanwhile, world market volatility further highlights the necessity for European investors to consider adding Commodities to their portfolios both for diversification, and for momentum. We believe that both phenomena are inextricably linked, and present unique opportunities to the discerning investor - we intend to support investors in uncovering those opportunities.
