Qatar Holding Makes Golden Inroads

There has been broad speculation that Qatar Holding, the sovereign wealth enterprise of the Qatar Investment Authority wants to allocate more capital in gold. Not so much in gold exchange-traded funds, but rather in gold producing companies.

These types of direct investments are riskier by their very nature, but can have a greater return payout. Recently, Qatar Holding invested into European Goldfields in addition, to lending money to the firm. It is clear the sovereign wealth entity wants to be a major player in gold firm investments. Some speculation includes the creation of a dedicated gold investment vehicle.  The commodity reached a high last month, but fell recently due to current market volatility.
