    The case for investing in gold has been the focus of attention to many investors over the past few years. To some, gold seems arcane; to others, it is an indispensable asset. To most, a key challenge is finding an appropriate framework of reference: what gold does, what it does not do, how and why it responds to various economic environments. We will explore these issues as well as discuss the role that gold plays for investors in terms of wealth preservation and portfolio risk management.

    Juan Carlos Artigas is the Head of Investment Research for the World Gold Council.  His responsibilities include managing the global Investment Research team and providing oversight of research initiatives related to positioning gold as an integral part of investor portfolios. Juan Carlos has contributed significantly to reshaping World Gold Council’s approach to investment research through robust financial analysis and the introduction of ideas such as gold as a tail risk hedge which have helped further gold’s case among professional investors. He is a regular presenter at industry conferences and is a sought after speaker by institutional and private investors who seek his expertise on the strategic case for gold. 

    Juan Carlos previously worked for JPMorgan Securities, as a US and Emerging Markets fixed income strategist, where he oversaw the US cross-sector strategy first and he later led the Latin American sovereign debt and Mexico local market strategy effort. In this role he created a Latin American sovereign debt monitor and contributed to leading US and Emerging Markets strategy publications. Prior to his work at JPMorgan, Juan Carlos acted as Lecturer at the University of Chicago and participated in various statistical consulting projects. Before that he served as an Advisor to the General Director of Planning, Programming and Budgeting at the Ministry of Education in Mexico City.

    Juan Carlos holds a BS in Actuarial Sciences from ITAM (Mexico), and an MBA and MS in Statistics from the University of Chicago. He was also a candidate for Doctor of Philosophy in Econometrics and Statistics from the University of Chicago.
