Gold Bug Profile: Ben Davies

July 13, 2020

Many investors remain incredibly bullish on gold. More often than not, they maintain this outlook for years on end. Ben Davies is one of the top fund managers for precious metals and commodities.

The Career of Ben Davies

When a gold bug appears in the media on a rather regular basis, he will always be worth looking into. Ben Davies has become a frequent guest on outlets such as CNBC, Bloomberg, and Sky Business News. All of this interest stems forth from his personal view on the precious metals markets, as well as his professional opinion.

In regards to that latter aspect, Davies is the co-founder and CEO of Hinde Capital. Founding this company came after building up over a dozen years of experience in financial and commodity markets. Previous employers include Credit Lyonnais, Aubrey G Langston & Co, Greenwich Capital, and Blue Sky Capital Australia,.

Following this lengthy career, he founded Hinde Capital and became a partner of Variant Perception. What makes Hinde Capital so interesting is how this investment manager firm pays a lot of attention to gold.

This is evident when looking at the Hinde Gold Fund, which is the primary business venture. Partaking in this fund requires a minimum investment of $100,000. 

Through Hinde Gold Fund, investors can hedge their capital against the loss in purchasing power associated with paper money. All of the Fund’s assets are located as physical gold bars stored in Bank Julius Baer vaults in Switzerland. 

Ben Davies on Gold

Despite offering the Hinde Gold Fund to investors all over the world, Ben Davies hasn’t always been bullish on gold. It is impossible to maintain a positive outlook on a specific market for years on end. Market sentiment will change over time, whether one wants to deal with it or not. 

Back in 2012, Ben Davies made some very interesting gold-related comments. Not only did he confirm that gold would turn a bit bearish that year due to Europe’s economic crisis, but he also offered some hope. Unlike any other asset, gold tends to maintain its purchasing power.

Keeping that in mind, Davies expected gold to eventually hit $6,000 per ounce. Given some of the more recent predictions by analysts, that wouldn’t be an outlandish claim either.

Back in 2012, the sentiment toward precious metals was very different compared to today. As long as Asia remains a big buyer, things will continue to trend higher over time.

Ben Davies on Bubbles

Thanks  to all of his expertise in the financial industry, Ben has been able to closely study market patterns. As such, he knows all too well when a bubble is forming. In his opinion, gold has never shown much of a bubble, primarily because it has proven incapable of sustaining a disorderly rise. 

To some, that may seem like a negative point. In reality, however, it quickly becomes apparent that gold will not be in a bubble state in the future either. It tends to move up slowly and surely, rather than noting exponential growth out of the blue. Unlike stocks or most commodities, gold and other precious metals are a long-term play.
