The Germans and investment
German citizens tend to be cautious when it comes to equity funds or shares in companies.

While around 17.5 percent of the population in Germany (aged 14 and over) owned shares or equity funds in 2020, their share declined somewhat in 2021. This is because an average of around 17.1 percent were invested last year. At the beginning of the pandemic, there was an increase, but now it has gone back in the other direction. On the one hand, this was due to hesitant new investors and, on the other, investors took profits. In 2020, one can speak of a stock boom, because the number of shareholders was higher than it had been for the previous 20 years.
In view of the problem of zero interest rates or negative real interest rates, equities are particularly suitable for preserving and increasing assets, less for short-term investors, of course, but more for the long term. It is also interesting to compare how investments develop over time. If you had 10,000 euros in cash ten years ago, today this sum would only have a purchasing power of about 8.700 euros. If 10,000 euros had been invested in gold ten years ago, the investor could enjoy a value of around 12,000 euros today.
And today, it's not just a matter of preserving value and building up assets; private provision for old age is more important than ever. So it would be desirable for shares to become a component of old-age provision. So, what could be more obvious than to look into the shares of gold companies, for example companies like OceanaGold or Skeena Resources.
OceanaGold is a successful gold producer in New Zealand, the Philippines and the USA. In 2021, overall gold production increased by about 20 percent year-over-year.
Skeena Resources - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-Pc6tkcRAs - is pursuing the revival of the previously producing Eskay Creek mine in British Columbia, with a pre-feasibility study already in place.
