Poised to emerge from its golden shadow

We’ve chosen a provocative title for this Insight piece, but it’s one we think is justified given the shortage of silver that we see emerging. This should translate into growing investor interest as silver’s attractive fundamentals become widely appreciated. In our opinion, they are currently not that well understood by most investors, both professional and retail.

Why has silver’s long and illustrious history faded from people’s minds during the past century and why are more people not drawing attention to its exciting future? In all likelihood, it has something to do with being overshadowed by its much higher-profile precious metals cousin, gold ‒ even though the drivers for supply and demand for the two metals only partially overlap.
