WisdomTree's Nitesh Shah focuses on gold at Nordic Summit

Nitesh Shah, director, Research at WisdomTree, is set to outline the hedging effects of gold and its use at a time when near-term Coronavirus fears threaten global growth, with continued geopolitical concerns beyond that, when he presents at the upcoming InvestmentEurope Nordic Summit Stockholm 2020, taking place at the Grand Hotel on 10-11 March.

Shah will outline how gold performs when cyclical assets are faltering, and serves as a great hedge in times of uncertainty. Other precious metals have a strong correlation to gold and therefore offer a proxy to gold's traits, sometimes at lower entry points. He will discuss his outlook for gold and other precious metals using models he has developed and offer scenarios for what is likely to be a year of uncertainty.

Prior to the acquisition of ETF Securities in April 2018, Shah was a commodities strategist for the company. He has 16 years of experience as an economist and strategist, covering a wide range of markets and asset classes. Before joining ETF Securities, He was an economist covering the European structured finance markets at Moody's Investors Service and was a member of Moody's global macroeconomics team. Before that he was an economist at the Pension Protection Fund and an equity strategist at Decision Economics. He started his career at HSBC Investment Bank. Shah holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the London School of Economics and a Master of Arts in International Economics and Finance from Brandeis University (USA).
