It was in late 2020 when Hubbis last conducted a major survey of over 100 experts in Asia’s wealth management markets, asking them how they were helping position client portfolios for the potential arrival of inflation. At the time, there were gradually growing concerns that, despite the bullishness of investors after the big sell-off caused by the early days of the pandemic, the era of a rising tide of money lifting most mainstream asset valuations worldwide was inevitably going to give way to a new era requiring greater selectivity, deeper analysis and far more caution.

That tide did, however, keep rising for asset prices throughout 2021, but, then the inevitable happened – inflation and higher interest rates arrived and with far greater force and impact than most had expected; greater volatility struck, asset prices slumped, and geopolitical worries turbocharged anxiety, dragging asset prices and markets down further and harder than many might have expected.

Meanwhile, the US dollar has maintained its strength, rising against virtually all currencies since 2021, except the mighty Swiss franc. Bitcoin, which many had promoted as being effectively digital gold and therefore a hedge against inflation, has slumped nearly 70% from its October 2021 all-time high (although it is still more than 200% higher than its price in March 2020 during the early weeks and fears of the pandemic).

So, what does all this mean for gold, which hit an all-time high of about USD2069 in August 2020 but has since fallen to below USD1700?

On December 8, Hubbis will assemble a group of experts to answer some of these questions, to look at the gold and precious metals markets from the perspectives of the wealth management community (the private banks, EAMS, MFOs, SFOs) and the private investors. They will aim to determine their attitudes and approaches and indeed how investment is taking place, such as into physical gold or gold-related stocks or actively managed funds, or ETFs. Regarding physical gold or other precious metals, they will also debate how the wealth managers can work with specialist firms to acquire, trade and also hold these metals.

Join us on December 8 for what will no doubt be an illuminating and valuable discussion on the merits of gold and also on the merits of other precious metals for Asia’s private wealth market.
