A lot of people are very bullish on gold as of right now. Others have maintained this outlook for years now, and even turned it into a business. Ned Naylor-Leyland is clearly a gold bug, but he also keeps close tabs on the silver market.

The Life of Ned Naylor-Leyland

In the world of gold, silver, and other precious metals, Ned Naylor-Leyland is a well-known and well-respected name. He has quite the baggage in terms of financial expertise and track record to back up any claims made. With over 17 years of investment experience, Ned has successfully made a living in this cutthroat industry.

Finding a market to focus on is crucial if one wants to be successful in investing. For Naylor-Leyland, the precious metals markets have always been of keen interest. By actively putting money into both gold and silver, he has made a lot of money over the years.

Jobs-wise, Ned has worked for Quilter Cheviot, Smith & Williamson, and so forth. He helped set up a dedicated precious metals fund for Cheviot Asset Management in 2009. At that time, it was clear that traditional finance would continue to pose too many risks, and gold and silver would be the better investment options. 

Ned Naylor-Leyland on Silver

A lot of people expected Ned to come out in favor of precious metals in 2019. Representing Merian Global Investors, he confirmed that, in 2019, there were plenty of opportunities for investors keeping tabs on both gold and silver. The year 2019 has been a good year for precious metals all round, and that trend has continued this year, barring some dips along the way. 

What made his statement in 2019 all the more remarkable is how Ned expected a better performance by silver compared to gold. 

This has always been interesting to keep an eye on, primarily because silver is valued much lower. However, as the year 2020 has shown, silver can be a very resilient metal. It is even appreciating in value when gold comes under a bit of pressure. 

Ned Remains Bullish on Gold in 2020

Given the performance of precious metals in 2019 and early 2020, it appears that Ned Naylor-Leyland’s optimism was more than warranted. Silver performed more than adequately. Gold, on the other hand, has shown signs of willing to go much higher, although there is still ample pressure on this market.

During an interview with Morningstar, Ned confirmed that he remains very bullish on gold for the foreseeable future. He even claimed that there is a good chance to see the gold price move higher, although Ned doesn’t offer potential price targets. 

Theoretically, gold should have a “strong double-digit annual performance”. What the future will hold for silver, remains to be seen, but there will be some accumulation taking place.
