Today the outspoken hedge fund manager out of Hong Kong, who recently lit the gold world on fire with his comments about a coming short squeeze in gold, told King World News that managed money around the world is already beginning to convert paper claims on gold into physical metal. Kaye, who 23 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions and who is now the founder and principal shareholder of Pacific Group in Hong Kong, strongly believes that “only a small fraction of investors in the world need to do what we are doing to create an enormous short squeeze” in gold.
KWN will be releasing a series of written interviews today with Kaye which discuss the coming global systemic meltdown, and how it will impact investors and key markets around the world, including gold and silver. Here is what Kaye had to say in part I of this exclusive interview: “We know the claims on gold in the marketplace exceed, depending on various estimates, 100 to 150 times the amount of physical gold known to exist. So when a credible country like Germany has sufficient concerns about whether they can get physical possession and safe storage of fully allocated gold, it’s our contention that any prudent investor should be concerned.”
William Kaye continues:
“When the music stops, what the leverage in the system should tell you is there aren’t going to be enough chairs. So Germany, as a credible country, is saying, ‘We’re reserving our chair.’ Now this is exactly the type of catalyst that, as investors, we look for as owners of fully allocated gold ourselves.
We share many of Germany’s concerns….
“We want our gold in a safe location, fully allocated, (where) no one else can have a claim on it. We can go and touch it, and we know it’s there. That’s exactly the process that Germany has going on currently, and it’s something that should be getting the attention of every investor.”
