EVENT: Briefing for corporate members on gold investment

Date: 13th June, 2019 Time: 01:00 pm - 02:30 am
Briefing for corporate members on gold investment

Two executives from the World Gold Council delivered a briefing to ABA Corporate members on the gold market, and in particular new Shari'ah-compliant gold investment products that have recently been developed.

The main points of the presentation were:

  • Gold offers strong risk-adjusted returns, diversification, and low volatility.
  • Uncertainty around Shari'ah portfolios and gold has been removed following the publication of Aaoifi's Shari'ah Standard on gold in 2016. The Standard expands the range of products in which Shari'ah-observant investors may place their money.
  • Indicators suggest that now might be a good time for investors to think about allocating some of their funds to gold. The current S&P P/E ratios and the length of the bull run on the US $ are such that future returns are unlikely to match those seen in recent years.

The full slide presentation is attached below. 

John Reade is Chief Market Strategist at the World Gold Council. He spoke about the investment case for gold, and latest developments: john.reade@gold.org

Jaspar Crawley is Diector of Institutional Investment. He spoke about the Aaoifi Shari'ah Standard and the case for Shari'ah-compliant investment in gold. jaspar.crawley@gold.org
