Gold Bug Profile: Adrian Ash

Over the years, it would appear that most of the gold bugs are people who have been involved in precious metals for decades. Contrary to what some may think, the younger generations are also paying close attention to these markets.

Who is Adrian Ash?

While not necessarily known to the bigger public, Adrian Ash has become very prominent in the precious metals industry through his own means. By properly educating himself and writing about finance and private investment advice, Ash has built up a solid resume and garnered ample expertise in the process. 

Noteworthy stints include being the London correspondent for The Daily Reckoning up until 2008. Ever since, he has become a “freelance contributor” of sorts, with content appealing on multiple analysis sites. Platforms to find his content on include Forbes, BBC – both written and on the radio – and television news. 

These days, most publications are interested in Ash’s view on the gold market. Multiple features in the Financial Times and Economist show that he is an individual to watch when it comes to precious metals. One can only gain exposure through reputable finance publications if they have something valuable and informative to add. 

Adrian Ash on Gold and Silver

By being so outspoken on both gold and silver, Ash has become a very prominent figure in the finance sector. Back in 2013, he even provided some very interesting comments on the two top assets in the precious metal segment: gold and silver.

While the markets were very different seven years ago, Ash was convinced that owning both gold and silver – either as part of an active portfolio or just in terms of hard assets generally – makes a lot of sense. Both gold and silver can be converted easily, tend to maintain their value – or even gain more – and are global forms of currency in their own regard.

Fast forward to today, and a very similar sentiment still exists. Silver and gold have both seen their own bullish runs, and retained value rather well during the COVID-19 pandemic. Compared to more traditional holdings, such as stocks, bonds, treasuries, and the likes, these two markets have brought hope to many investors globally.

Adrian Ash on High Gold Prices

To the average person on the street, a high gold price may seem daunting. Once a high value is reached, there is – at least psychologically – little room for further upward momentum. It is often during these periods that markets go through a retrace – either brief or long – before settling back at a lower price. 

In terms of gold’s price, Adian Ash is convinced that a record high is not deterring investors in the slightest. Keep in mind that those comments were made nearly 10 years ago, yet they still remain relevant today. Gold has shown plenty of signs of wanting to go higher, and investors haven’t been able to subdue the market for extensive periods of time.
