Silver, the Other Portfolio Insurance

Silver is up a staggering 56% against the British Pound in 2016. Silver’s rise is easily attributable to the rush to monetary safety caused by slowing economic growth, central bank incessant stimulus and zero and negative interest policies and uncertainty engendered by the Brexit vote.

Gold is up 40% year to date vs. the British Pound as institutional investors piled into gold and gold ETFs. Silver is up even more than gold because the silver market is far smaller and therefore more price sensitive to increases in physical demand. At prices under $20 an ounce silver, is far more accessible to small retail buyers.

Retail buyers bought more than 110 million ounces of silver coins in 2015. In 2016, the pace of silver sales at the major sovereign mints was up more than thirty percent in the first quarter from 2015’s record pace.

Silver is a hedge against central bank folly and global economic certainty, and an insurance policy that often pays back more than the losses it may insure against. Purchased at the right time, silver can be insurance with a lower premium than gold that provides a larger payout.

Silver’s rise from about £9.50 to nearly £15 illustrates the point:
