Boston, MA, February 02, 2013 - A new Morgan Stanley Report predicting that gold’s rally will continue into the third quarter of 2014 has been welcomed by Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).
The report predicts that the US Federal Reserve will carry on buying up gold to strengthen the economy’s position well into next year, which could mean that it’s still very much worth investing in this alternative asset class. AAA endorses investment in alternative asset classes and ethical investment projects, such as the forestry investment and green energy investment.
“We are pleased to hear Morgan Stanley’s endorsement of gold as an asset class,” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson. He continued: “We have seen a major increase in interest in alternatives since the economic collapse. It seems both institutional investors and individuals simply looking to diversify their investment portfolios against risk are keen on alternatives.”
“Investing in something like gold, as opposed to stocks and shares, offers a certain peace of mind as it is something tangible in exchange for their cash.”
As the US recovery increasingly took hold at the end of 2012, the price of gold fell. However, the Morgan Stanley analysts believe that the asset class is to remain popular well into next year.
Reports suggest that the US economy is to grow by 2 per cent in the coming year and 3 per cent in 2014. The number of houses being built is growing rapidly is response to the more positive economic outlook.
The house building increase is set to benefit some other alternative asset classes, like forestry, claims AAA. “Investing in timberland through firms that run plantations of sustainably grown timbers, like Greenwood Management, is a great bet at the moment,” added Mr Johnson. “Investing in timber is risk-averse and is a great way to offsetting the impact of inflation.”
