According to Incrementum AG, gold prices are projected to rally to levels, last seen four years ago as rising inflation and negative real interest rates combine to boost demand. Incrementum AG stated prices may climb to $1,400 to $1,500 an ounce this year. Gold prices have already climbed year to date and investors are approaching the new presidential administration with caution as it tries to implement its political and economic agendas. These uncertainties, along with the upcoming France elections, the lingering Brexit process, will increase demand for safe-haven assets such as gold. Kenadyr Mining Holdings Corp.

Ronald-Peter Stoeferle, managing partner at Incrementum AG, explained, "The real pick up in momentum might start at the beginning of summer. It's in the very early stages of the bull market, so everybody is still kind of cautious or slightly negative, but this will improve. As soon as we get the signal for rising inflation, we'll invest in inflation-sensitive assets again such as silver equities, gold equities, energy and the broad commodity complex." Stoeferle manages 30 million Swiss francs in the renamed Incrementum Inflation Diversifier Fund.
