Crescat November Research Letter: Gold Is Set to Replace Treasuries

Gold Is Set to Replace Treasuries. Precious metals are likely to become a key alternative asset class to replace US Treasuries that are now yielding negative in real terms. Long decades of lack of fiscal and monetary discipline will, in our view, lead to a big shift in the way investors view gold and silver. For centuries, monetary metals have served as a perfect hedge for the constant devaluation of fiat currencies worldwide. In today’s macro scenario, these commodities have potential to massively outperform fixed income instruments. Meanwhile, the precious metals to US Treasuries ratio is still near all-time lows. In the years to come, we believe investors will favor gold and silver over sovereign assets.
