However, given that demand is rising and supply continues to contract, prices may be moving much higher. “Yes, the velocity of recovery has been
disappointing but it’s heading in the right direction and that overhang will clear, and when it does, we’re going to see a market that can move very quickly.” Although Adnani, also founder of gold company Brazil Resources, doesn’t think gold is in a bull market like most investors do, he says it is coming. “I don’t think this is a bull market at all, I think this is a market that is recovering,” he said.
For Adnani, the uncertainty surrounding markets and geopolitical events like the Brexit are helping build the case for gold. “Brexit in a way brought to the forefront what gold can do in all of our portfolios as insurance,” he said. “I think it was the ultimate reminder to investors about the role gold plays as insurance, alternative currency, as a store of value, and wealth preservation and creation.”
