Cam Currie of Canaccord Genuity talks about metals as a vital hedge against inflationary pressure

In this InvestorIntel interview Tracy Weslosky talks to Cam Currie, Senior Investment Advisor at Canaccord Genuity Wealth Management and the Principal, Currie Metals and Mining Group, who is among Canada’s top 150 investment advisors with 32 years’ experience in metals and mining.

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here), Cam discusses the changing fundamentals of the current market. “We have been concentrating on focusing clients on metals and mining for a number of reasons,” he tells Tracy. “It’s a supply side issue and people don’t understand that there’s no money going to the ground. There are no projects coming on the pipeline and with the EV movement evolving, copper over time will do very, very well.”

As well Cam says that he is “very bullish on precious metals and I’ve actually been very much a crusader in the industry. I meet with the World Gold Council on a regular basis.” He observes that short-term gold prices have been artificially kept down because of the strength of the U.S. dollar, but he remains “extremely bullish – we’re adding to positions very aggressively.” He adds: “I have a basket of companies and again they range from seniors and mid-tiers to developers. I don’t play in the junior exploration grassroots because I think that’s just too high risk.”

Cam also talks about the opportunities and risks presented by the current inflationary environment, and how some of the world’s leading precious metals investment groups are positioning themselves to counter today’s risks in the bond/equity markets: “If you have a portfolio right now with a 60/40 bond-equity composition that’s not going to work for you going forward. You have to have a metals component to hedge against the uncertainties of that.”

James Hunter on destigmatizing wealth management for our Baby Boomers

“We are seeing an aging population. Around 40% of individuals over the age of 65 experience some sort of memory loss. So, it is going to become more of an issue especially where wealth management is concerned and the dynamics of the advisor-client relationship…”, States James Hunter, Head of Wealth Management at Echelon Wealth Partners Inc., in an interview with InvestorIntel’s Tracy Weslosky.

James went on to say that older adults should have a plan ready for any financial uncertainty and a good advisor can help with that. He said that Echelon advisors are equipped with this advice. They can give advice around seeking power of attorney and advice in terms of who to appoint as the power of attorney. Echelon can make sure that a client’s documents are in a centralized safe location that family members and trusted individuals are aware of where those documents are.
