Negative interest rates are good for gold
The US investment house JP Morgan Chase & Co. recently made a list of government bonds that generate negative interest income. According to this, there are already around 31 trillion dollars, the equivalent of a good 26 trillion euros, no interest, and even more negative interest. Even with an inflation rate of zero percent, investment money thus loses purchasing power. Mostly it is institutional investors who invest these huge sums. Insurance contracts, for example, often cannot be seen through at first glance anyway, so customers often do not even notice what is happening to them or what will happen in the future. Already now therefore life insurance companies come around the corner and offer life and pension insurances, which carry the risk of hard losses and for it higher net yields than at present in prospect.
The fact is the purchasing power of savings is slowly but surely dwindling. New insurance models will probably not be able to change that. The system of high public debt is based on the fact that this debt can be serviced by low interest payments and at the same time is slowly but surely devalued by a comparatively high depreciation of money.
What cannot be devalued by state leaders and central bankers in such an environment is gold, or rather many types of tangible assets. But investors should be careful that government access there cannot be unrestricted. In the case of physical gold, at least, this is difficult. Gold will therefore remain the last refuge. But also, investors who want to earn a possible return on investment besides gold as insurance should take a look at companies with good gold projects. Their share prices usually move with a lever on the gold price. Investors who believe in a positive gold price therefore add shares of Osisko Gold Royalties and Fury Gold Mines to their portfolio.
With Osisko Gold Royalties, investors immediately bring a large degree of diversification into their portfolio. The royalty company has a large portfolio of investments and has just founded Osisko Development, a mine development company.
Fury Gold Mines, an Auryn Resources spin-off, owns three high-grade gold properties, Eau Claire, Committee Bay and Homestake Ridge, located in Quebec, British Columbia and Nunavut.
