Wealthion, Released on 8/31/22
As inflation continues at a 40+ year high, it’s time for an update on gold — historically one of, if not the most, trusted asset investors turn to to protect the purchasing power of their wealth against the ravages of inflation. Frankly put, gold has had a lackluster performance this year, at least when priced in US dollars. Why is that? And will it come to life if inflation persists from here? For answers to these questions, we turn to Brien Lundin, Editor of GoldNewsletter & producer of the excellent New Orleans Investment Conference.
Brien Lundin serves as president and CEO of Jefferson Financial, Inc., a highly regarded producer of investment-oriented events and publisher of investment newsletters and special reports. Under the Jefferson Financial umbrella, Mr. Lundin serves as publisher and editor of Gold Newsletter, the publication that has been the cornerstone of precious metals advisories since 1971, and as the host of the annual New Orleans Investment Conference, the oldest and most respected investment event of its kind. In addition to his responsibilities with Jefferson Financial, Mr. Lundin is an active investor and speculator in the mining and technology sectors.
