Referat Bakersteel Capital Managers
Wednesday, 22. January 2020, 10:00 - 10:45 UHR
Speaker(s): Mark Burridge
Gold has always proven itself to be a stable store of value and is again highly topical in times of political and economic turbulence. Renewable energies and electromobility on the other hand need future technologies that rely on certain metals such as tin, copper, lithium and silver. Mr. Mark Burridge, Fund Manager of the Bakersteel Precious Metals Fund, will give a brief presentation on the current developments of gold, as well as precious metal equities and then present in more detail the new “Electrum” investment strategy from Baker Steel. The metals being mined by the producing companies whose holdings form the underlying of the Electrum Fund are also often called "electric metals". They are being used worldwide for energy production (such as solar and wind), energy distribution (eg power grid) and energy storage (industrial and automotive batteries) as part of the worldwide transition away from fossil fuels to sustainable energy use. An active, value-driven fundamental bottom-up research approach is important to identify the best performers amongst those companies. This is why Baker Steel is best placed to utilise these secular trends to the benefit of its investors.
