Moonraker finds hedgies have a Goldfinger


With a headline like that, you’d think this would be a story about investing in Bonds.

A recent fact-finding tour by Jeremy Charlesworth, CIO of Moonraker and manager of the commodities and global opportunities funds, found 20 out of 22 had been buying gold out of concerns quantitative easing would fuel price rises.

Charlesworth sees further gains in the gold price – which has risen from just over $800 an ounce in January to $930 now — and plans to raise exposure in both his funds.rtr246nk
