Full House – The Future of Gold as an Asset Class – 21 March 2023

21 Mar 2023

Mr. David Garofalo

Chairman and CEO,
Gold Royalty Corp

Gold has had a good run …. for over 2,500 years for that matter! But does gold still have a future as an asset class? Gold was first used as a form of currency as early as 550 BC when King Croesus minted coins in what is now Turkey. But the adoption of the gold standard in the late 1800s, cemented its value in modern day finance. This was when most major nations fixed the value of their currency to the gold price.  But recently many people have questioned its role in the financial sector and its value as a traditional store of value in the face of other alternatives.  So what is the future for gold and with it the gold sector? How is the gold industry preparing for a future shaped by emerging financial technology and ESG priorities.  Returning to speak to the Asia Mining Club is David Garofalo, Chairman and CEO of Gold Royalty Corp., and one of the gold industries most experienced and respected executives.  Please join us for lunch on March 21st at the Foreign Correspondents Club for an insightful discussion.
