“Our investment approach is to recognize that the world is constantly changing and that one should take account of these major economic, political and technological trends in thinking about portfolio construction,” says CEO Jan van Eck.
In this Q&A with Investor’s Business Daily, he expands on how this approach has been applied, particularly when it comes to the firm’s top-performing ETFs of 2020 so far. He also discusses:
Our price target for gold of over $3,000 per ounce and what investors need to know about investing in a precious metal fund.
The next big investment themes, from changing consumer preferences around content to macro trends such as the growing debt bubble and a declining dollar.
The overall outlook for economic recovery, which we expect to be uneven by sector, with employment remaining an area of uncertainty.
