Mark Mobius, a U.S. portfolio manager and manager at Franklin Templeton Investments, also known as the "old master of Asian equities," expects currency depreciation to be not insignificant. Unprecedented stimulus measures are the cause, he says. Therefore, he advises investors to always keep a certain percentage in the form of gold in their investment portfolio. He considers the currency devaluation coming next year to be extremely significant, given the incredible amount of money that has been printed. It’s "very, very good to have physical gold that you can access immediately without the government seizing all the gold," Mobius says. He recommends 10 percent.
A recent study by the World Gold Council also shows that Mobius’ recommendations are well-founded. A gold allocation of ten percent has helped to improve returns over the past 20 years. A portfolio with ten per cent physical gold, viewed between June 2001 and June 2021, had higher returns and lower volatility than a portfolio with only five per cent gold – or even no investments in commodities or gold. That’s what the World Gold Council found.
Mobius also points to the deterioration of purchasing power due to overheated inflation, not only in the US but also on the other side of the Atlantic. Gold investments help here, not only in physical gold, but also in gold shares. An investment in OceanaGold or Kore Mining, for example, would be possible.
Kore Mining – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiJqVgb0KWw – owns the Long Valley and Imperial projects in California. Exploration and development of the two gold projects are in full swing. A well-known strategic investor is Eric Sprott.
OceanaGold – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiVnrL52S-M – has a portfolio of established properties, such as the Didipio mine in the Philippines, the Macraes and Waihi projects in New Zealand and the Haile gold mine in the USA. It is expected to produce 340,000 to 380,000 ounces of gold annually over the next few years.
