Gold Bug Profile: Thomas Puppendahl

July 5, 2020

Thomas Puppendahl is one of those gold bugs who tends to strike a chord with a lot of people. His expertise in the investment sector and global capital markets is put to good use when discussing precious metals. 

Who is Thomas Puppendahl?

Thomas has started his career as an analyst in the M&A division of Merrill Lynch in London. Being part of such a vast financial firm at an early stage will often provide invaluable insights into finances and markets. Puppendahl worked on major international deals spanning numerous industries, and became of key value during the 1998 Asia crisis. 

His stint in the M&A segment did not end there either. The second major job, for Emgassen & co, revolved primarily around cross-border merger and acquisition transactions. By looking at the bigger picture of the financial sector, Puppendahl eventually made his way into the precious metals industry.

One of the reasons why his ideas are so highly regarded is due to their contrarian nature. Having out-of-the-box ideas in the financial sector is not always appreciated, but it doesn’t make one wrong either. Over the years, Thomas’ contrarian vision on finance has allowed him to become very successful.

Thomas Puppendahl and Precious Metals

Being an active trend watcher in the precious metal sector for 15 years yields a lot of insights. For Thomas, it has become his specialization in recent years. Because of this “shift” in focus, he also became the co-founder of a gold streaming and royalty company based in Singapore. 

This latter venture is very intriguing, as it provides development capital to emerging gold producers. Over the past few decades, numerous new entrants have popped up in the precious metal industry. Without an adequate amount of funding, most of these companies would no longer exist today. 

Gold Expectations for 2020 and Beyond

Not that long ago, there was a rather impressive gold and silver price prediction by Thomas Puppendahl. 

He went as far as claiming how the bull market will become a lot more violent, at least for precious metals. Under normal circumstances, that isn’t the best sentiment, but given everything that transpired in 2020, it may just come true. 

Clarifying this sentiment, he confirmed that the next three years will see ample market momentum. Both gold and silver will benefit from these trends. 

Not only will gold reach a value of $5,000, but silver will push to $50. That latter part is not unlikely, when keeping an eye on the silver-gold ratio. It seems to hover near the 100 mark on a regular basis. If gold surges, so will silver, and it will have 1/100th of the price. 

Time will tell if this is indeed the early stage of the bull market for precious metals. Assuming this outlook comes true, the next 36 months will become incredibly entertaining. Keeping a close eye on all markets may prove worthwhile.
