Gold – Bill Kaye

Gold ·
Featuring Bill Kaye

Published on: January 22nd, 2015 • Duration: 63 minutes

In this episode of the Gold series, Bill Kaye, Senior Managing Director of The Pacific Group Ltd., discusses his path that led from a lifetime of managing hedge funds and private equity, to the gold market after 2008. A fascinating talk on portfolio risk management, market manipulation, and what a gold-standard international currency might look like.

    Tim Clissold wrote a book called Mr China: A Memoir which is a fascinating account of his first hand experience working for Bill’s PE firm going into China in the early days, and getting cheated by their local Chinese partners in every possible way, and the red tapes they had to navigate through. I watch these early RV videos with nostalgia, reflecting on Grant’s immense contributions with his contacts from working in Asia.

    Great interview and great to be able to go back in review some of these older interviews. Interestingly, his views on the timing of a significant market event were spot on (I think he referenced / implied a collapse of some kind within a year of this filming). If not for the Yellen-led massive intervention in Feb. 2016 I think it would have occurred.

    4 years past. Would be good to have a review. So far no crisis. Gold is still there more or less as in 2015. Would be of interest to hear the update.

    Thomas, Bill is a brilliant investor with a ton of experience who happens to believe that gold is the right asset to own right now. He is in great company. None of those guys are crazy in my opinion

    Grant--I still think this is one of the best interviews to-date. His 10 min soliloquy starting around the 39 minute mark is remarkable. You should have him (and Stephanie) back--and get Doug Noland!!!

    "Manipulation not markets." "There is more than enough gold in the world; the question is at what price." What an outstanding interview. Thank you for bringing Mr. Kaye's insights to Realvison.

    Market manipulation and unified global currency points were incredibly enlightening. This is Real Vision

    It seems that a solution to the global money question would be a fusion of the Sprott gold/silver trusts with bitcoin system. The ability to redeem shares builds trust and trading made easy.

    Thanks for this. An interview with someone who knows the IMF global currency research would be of great interest. It might make sense to also own currencies other than dollars if this comes to pass.

    "SNB peg disastrous" ... subsequently gone. "Bundesbank questions to answer" ... subsequently announced greater repatriation. Hmmm.

    An outstanding interview with one of the most highly credible and intelligent investors in the gold market. Bill's rationale on macro factors influencing his gold investment thesis were compelling.

    Kevin, simply due to the backlog in content and trying to prioritize the more time-sensitive material.. we will get better at funnelling stuff more quickly. Count on it!

    Bill Kaye COMPLETELY belies the image of gold investors as wild-eyed, arm-waving, doomster nutcases. Excellent interview. Keep 'em coming Grant. Good job.
