  • (1888PressRelease) September 22, 2015 - Bluefield Partners, the Shenzhen, China-headquartered broker-dealer and wealth manager has compiled a report on the prospects for precious metals as the US Federal Reserve mulls raising interest rates for the first time in almost a decade.

    The report - available here - is the first in a series from the firm that deals with investments that have fallen out of favor in recent years. Given the economic challenges facing China, the outlook for commodities as an asset class is looking gloomy given that much of the run up in prices was rooted in the country's seemingly insatiable appetite for base metals like iron, copper and aluminum.

    "That dynamic doesn't exist to anywhere near the same extent as it did in 2009/2010 when China unleashed a massive US$589 billion fiscal stimulus package in the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis," said Joel Cooper, Chief Investment Officer at Bluefield Partners.

    "The Chinese authorities commissioned massive infrastructure projects that called for huge spending on raw materials lighting a fire under their prices," he added.

    "Our report looks at the rationale for investing in precious metals which come under the commodities asset class but from a contrarian perspective. We don't think that US monetary policy can ever really be normalized again without a deep and incredibly damaging recession and we don't subscribe to the near universally-held notion that the US economy is suddenly going to accelerate in the third and fourth quarters. We think that the Fed will launch another round of quantitative easing within the next 6 months which is extremely bullish for precious metals prices," concluded Cooper.

    Bluefield Partners says that its next report will focus on the outlook for emerging market equities which have sold off markedly in recent months.
